One of the most handsome houses in Calais, which was recently named one of Maine's best places to live by DownEast magazine. This circa 1830 Federal red brick house with its distinctive five-window facade faces the town's quintessential Main Street and is next door to a spacious park complete with towering shade trees and a bandstand. The house features tin ceilings, hardwood floors throughout, and 4, (yes, four!) fireplaces: in the dining room, living room, and in two of the bedrooms. The house has two full baths and two laundry facilities, one on each floor. The sunroom, with its separate entrance, may be used as a reading room, office, or suite for an office, or in-law first floor living quarters with its walk-in shower and closet. Known as the Elias Barbour House, it was built for Elias Barbour, the first lighthouse keeper on St. Croix island, one of the earliest European settlements in North America. In recent years the house was owned by Dr. Miner, who lived in the house and practiced dentistry out of the first-floor side office until 1976. In 1976 it was sold to a local forester and his artsy wife. The house is a few blocks to Canada and to downtown Calais with its growing number of restaurants, a bakery, and a new spa. Calais is the first and only municipal broadband utility in the state of Maine, Downeast Broadband, with the highest speed internet found in New England. Calais is the gateway to the Maritimes, Canada and the northeastern starting point of Maine's Bold Coast. The 1-mile waterfront walkway is a block to the east along the tidal St. Croix River overlooking St. Stephen, New Brunswick, Canada. Broker owned. Many of the antiques and furniture may be purchased separately.
