Steeped in history this significant property, known as the Jarvis Homestead, is a magnificent example of mid-1800's architecture and one of Ellsworth's most beautiful residences. Designed by celebrated architect, Asher Benjamin, the house was built in 1860 for Charles Jarvis and Mary Ann Black, Col. John Black's daughter. With integral period details, from trim to fireplace mantles, the interior is lovely and bright without seeming pretentious or overwhelming. The light in each room is captivating to enhance paint and furnishings. Each room has a purpose from the formal dining room to the double parlor with pocket doors, or the original, beaded spruce glassed-in sun porch, library, kitchen, and charming 2-bedroom, in-law apartment on the first floor. The second floor bedrooms are lovely with a master suite and 5 additional bedrooms plus two more full baths. An office at the head of the stairs serves as a great workspace with a fireplace and built-ins for storage. The third floor has a finished room for overflow play space, cedar built-ins and a separate attic space, easily accessed. Tucked in the heart of Ellsworth, this magical property consists of a heated, in-ground swimming pool, lovely patio, stately trees, a secluded yard and an original, detached carriage house which has had extensive restoration. If you are looking for an historic property, but one with great energy inside and out, welcome to the Jarvis Homestead.
