About Brooke & Charlie McIlvaine
We have roots in Philadelphia, live in CT, and work in NYC. With our three children, we spend a chunk of each summer in Maine.
Brooke & Charlie McIlvaine purchased this house in 2011
Why Brooke & Charlie McIlvaine chose Southwest Harbor
Our family built this house in 1901 as well as the surrounding houses and were pioneers from Philadelphia in creating the summer colony on Mt. Desert sometimes called 'Philadelphia on the Rocks'. Mt. Desert is an amazing island that has such a diverse number of memorable activities. We haven't missed a summer here and for good reason.
What makes this house unique
This is a spacious, light, characterful home which was built for comfort and long summer stays. The property (contiguous to other family houses), location, and personal connection drew us to acquire it.
