You will never be the same after touring this mid-19th Century American Carpenter Gothic style home built along Bath's cherished merchant row -- Washington Street: a run of historic homes built by captains, shipping magnates, ice and spice traders, lumber companies and more. You can smell the shores of Hawaii and the banks of the Thames just walking down the street! Inside this highly decorated home you will pass through the elegance and mystique of the Gothic tradition: doors crafted from solid walnut, hand laid mahogany details, marble work, recessed panels, and a parlor complimented by striking bay windows. And your zeal for cooking will be welcomed in this cherry, stainless, and granite kitchen, punctuated by a Stickney-era wall cabinet of quarter-sawn white oak. The exterior boasts modern adaptations of medieval styles with lacy bargeboard, steep cross gables, grouped chimneys, and board and batten siding. The lucky stewards of this home enjoy a three bay post and beam carriage house in the back yard, capable of hosting all manners of use. The spacious backyard will welcome your gardening and lawn antics. This in-town home is a delight. Enjoy the finished lower level space for fitness or game room. Excellent heating system and many other updates. The John Green Richardson home -- likely designed by Gervase Wheeler, is indeed the rarest of opportunities to own an authentic American Gothic home, here in Maine. Offers reviewed Monday, May 3rd at noon. Response should be expected by Wednesday at noon. Sellers reserve the right to accept an offer prior to these deadlines.
