Happy Friday! 1840 Ship Chandler’s Home “Jeremiah Fowler House”! This home is full of eccentric character, a fascinating photo tour. It’s listed on the national historic register and located in the mysterious and mystical village of Lubec, Maine!
This home is SO interesting just to look at – I hope you enjoy the tour! An amazing collection of beautiful things. The listing says the house is being sold as-is, with many of the objects included. A deeply inspiring and artistic place – may it find its way to the right owner!
I researched the village of Lubec, and per this post on Downeast.com (worth reading the whole thing!) it sounds as interesting as the house itself:
The ancient Christian Celts believed in the existence of supernatural spaces between heaven and earth — “thin places,” they called them, where the distance between the two realms, between the sacred and the profane, collapses. Gandhi talked about something similar, places where a mysterious power pervades everything. “I feel it,” Gandhi said, “though I do not see it. It transcends the senses.” Mystical nonsense? After spending some time in the town of Lubec, I’m not so sure.
More property details from the listing on Redfin:
Added to the ‘National Register of Historic Places’ in 1983, this rich in history, 5-6 BED, 2BA home sits on a large double lot in the village of Lubec. The home features extensive period woodwork, finishes, and detail. From the original built ins, the intricate detail in the framework & moldings, the well preserved early 20th Century bathroom, to the marble fire place in the parlor. .. this home really is a step into a time gone by. The property is well landscaped and includes an attached shed, barn, and a full guest house. Remaining within the same family since the 1850’s–the quirky details, hand painted walls, and creative spaces add to the character of the home. While it has been well maintained & loved, this home is looking for the next person(s) to love it and bring it back to life. Home is being sold ‘as is’ and most contents will convey.
