The Wallace/Haskell Home & Studio nestled on Sister Point in maritime Phippsburg, Maine. Listed in the National Register of Historic Places as the home and studio of prominent American artist Ernest Haskell from 1906 to 1925, the home was built by William Wallace in 1810. The property was later run as a summer camp by Ernest's widow, Emma, and sheltered British children in the early years of World War II. This high-posted cape and its surrounding 25.50± ac., approximately 22 ac. of which remain in an entirely undeveloped and natural state, will benefit from a conservation easement granted in 2015 to Maine Coast Heritage Trust, whose land steward monitors the property yearly, and a historic preservation easement held by Maine Preservation, who will monitor the easement & advise on restoration. A small spruce-lined footpath leads you to Sandy Cove and the water's edge where 900' of quintessential Maine rocky coastline on Small Point Harbor awaits. Walk along the water's edge and enjoy the sound of the waves lapping at the rocks with views of Wallace Head, Hermit Island, Wood Island, Fish House Cove, West Point & a broad expanse of open ocean facing south. Inside this historic home, you'll find 3 bedrooms and 1 bathroom with many period details throughout. Much of the trim and wainscoting are original as are some of the windows. Outside, you'll find a beautiful stone wall built in 1911 as well as many well-established perennials such as rhododendron, azalea, magnolia and lilacs. Up the hill you'll find the lodge, built c. 1927, which was once the camp dining area. It features a large open living area with a large stone fireplace, kitchen area and large ice box area with a doorway that flows to the camp offices & storerooms. Don't miss this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to become a steward to one of Maine's most historic homes. Just 13 min. to Popham Beach, 20 min. to downtown Bath, 27 min. to Maine Street Brunswick & 1 hr. to Portland International Jetport (PWM).
