About This 1904 Tudor Revival In Bar Harbor Maine
Breakwater, a distinguished architectural masterpiece on Mount Desert Island, is being offered fully furnished and in impeccable condition. Commissioned by John Jacob Astor’s grandson in 1904, the Tudor-style residence is acclaimed as the most elaborate Fred Savage design that stands today. The 13,803 square foot 12-bedroom, 8.5 – bath mansion, 4-bedroom carriage house, gate house, and 5-bay garage were masterfully restored in 2000.
The current owners purchased the property in 2009 and have augmented the list of improvements. The double gated 3.91-acre property is a private sanctuary on the shore path in the heart of Bar Harbor. Spectacular gardens, mature hedges and trees, and professional croquet court provide a luxury repose near the amenities of Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park. Morning sunrises and dramatic ocean views over the Porcupine Islands bring nature and beauty to the soul.
