About the property

Perhaps the finest views in Camden.

This historic and beautiful 1893 home high up on Chestnut Street was restored from the ground up in 1990. A 9 zone heating system and individual remote controlled air conditioners keep everyone comfy no matter the weather. A new 14 KV backup gernerator supports the entire house in case of a power failure.

We owners have been sailing to Camden for many decades and have children and grandchildren in Camden. We waited many years for the perfect second home to become available.

There are three levels of expansive views of the Inner Harbor Schooners to the moored yachts of the inner and outer harbors. The gardens are widely admired by the passers by and the sailors at the Camden Yacht Club across Bayview St. Extensive amenities and ample room size provide choices for a large family. The 2rd floor master bedroom features a king bed with a stunning view of Camden Harbor, a deck, and double bath/shower. Two additional bedrooms on that level each sleep two adults and share a full bathroom.

The kitchen overlooking the harbor is fully equipped with electric stove/oven, dishwasher, garbage disposal, full size microwave, toaster oven, two coffee makers, and blender.

The laundry room upstairs includes washer and dryer convenient to bedrooms.

The living room is furnished with Multiple sofas one facing the harbor and the second a leather queen sofa bed facing the beautiful Wood burning fireplace. A walk out deck is perfect for al fresco dining with a 5 burner infra red gas grille. The dining room table seats 8 and there are additional tables/chairs for 8 more. The separate TV Room includes another queen size sofa bed and shares the ground level full bath. The 60 inch TV is internet connected and fast Wifi is house wide.

The top floor level with a picture window overlooking the harbor has a large room with 4 additional beds sharing A half bath with a double bed bedroom on that level. This floor

Amazing location, perfect space for a large group and your dog!

  • 5 of 5

We had such an amazing time here over NYE weekend...even with the negative temps!! Robert could not have been more accommodating and helpful throughout our stay. The house is perfect for a large family or group. Plenty of beds and bedrooms and extra play spaces for kids. So much room to spread out. The pictures don’t do it justice. The loft upstairs was perfect for the girls to have their own space and the giant TV was a big hit with the kids. The back side of the house looks out into Camden Harbor and we enjoyed incredible sunrises and sunsets each day. Camden center is literally steps away and there are so many shops and restaurants to enjoy. Even with the arctic cold we walked into town a few times to shop and/or eat. There is a Hannaford Supermarket 5-10 mins down the road. Rockport and Rockland are close by and offer more shops and restaurants. We also hit up an indoor ice rink and movie theatre. We wanted to take advantage of the Camden Snowbowl but the frigid temps prevented us. There is a great fireplace in the main living room that we enjoyed the entire stay. This place would be even more incredible in the summer months. Thanks Robert for providing all of us (even our dog!) with a perfect spot to ring in 2018!
