Historic Berwick Hill Estate in Maine

Photo by: Zillow This magnificent Federal-style house sits on a bucolic 16 acres in Rockport, Maine. Built in 1809, Berwick Hill Estate features a fully renovated main house offering six bedrooms, six and a half baths and 5,060 square feet of living space.

According to the listing, the current owner of this 1809 federal-style residence renovated the home with the highest level of care, preserving its historic, architectural and aesthetic integrity. Our response: Well done! The end result is a gorgeous blend of old and new.

From the outside, the 5,060-square-foot home has a simple, symmetrical façade, typical of federal architecture. Inside, we find a classic elegance that’s hard to duplicate today. We love the warmth of the wood-lined living room, and the dining room with its large brick fireplace.

Spread over 16 bucolic acres, the property’s landscape design was informed by the styles of the period, with mature shade trees, lilacs and an apple orchard with 47 trees in several varieties. One modern addition that the estate’s next owners are sure to appreciate: an in-ground heated swimming pool surrounded by gorgeous perennial beds. Browse the photos above to find your favorite space in this expertly updated historic home.
