    Well everything is perfect. Not a wallpaper lover, in fact just the opposite, but I love and would keep their choices of wallpaper. It seems to be fading from modern decor. It might be because of the long winters but Mainers were/are a wallpapering people. Though this is far to large for us I might go see it. It’ll probably be one of those houses when I’ll have to fax my actuals before they’ll schedule a viewing.

    What a beautifully cared for home. That’s the way it should be done.

    Remove the Astroturf from porch – easy enough – and this place is a 10.

    Absolutely Beautiful! I agree about the entry hall wallpaper, it looks old! But I would love to see the house painted in period colors, that imitate stone.

    I know this house well. A friend of mine owns it. It has been on the market off and on for quite awhile. It is indeed lovely.

    Lots of color in this house (paint & wallpaper & ceilings) but somehow it all suits this house. I love it. That dining room built in is fabulous. Nice house and nice property!

    I am totally in love with this house. Also Bath is such a pretty coastal town. What a lucky person the new owner will be! Just needs a two car garage because, hey, its Maine and it does snow.

    The “Patten’ in the entryway-sold me. This California girl dreams of a summer home in Maine.

    Love the arch divider in what I assume to be the upper hall – very unusual. Beautiful, light-filled home.

    I liked the range in the kitchen and then I was the wood cook stove! How nice is that!

    It’s a wonderful house, although slightly over-improved. The guy that built it was self-made and quite rich – the owner of 65 ships, 2 banks and other stuff, yet a humble man who used his great wealth to improve his community far more than most modern billionaires. Capt. John Patten (1789-1887) said “Jesus has done everything for me.”
