Location: Falmouth Foreside, Maine
The Skinny: Nestled on a ten-acre private peninsula just north of Portland, Maine, this Italianate spread was built between 1870 and 1900 and has weathered the last 112 years quite well. The 14-room mansion measures more than 6,700 square feet and presides over 2,400 feet of waterfront. Elsewhere on the compound, known as Menikoe Point, lies a John Calvin Stevens-designed guest house, with two bedrooms and two baths. The grounds were designed by landscaping great Ellen Louise Payson, giving the oceanfront acreage a park-like appearance. A dock provides access to a yacht mooring, while a garage and workshop keep everything shipshape. The only sticking point here might be the price, $8.45M, which makes it the single most expensive house in the Portland area.
