Charles Lock was the son of David Ross Locke, better known as the pen name “Petroleum V. Nasby”, a famous Civil War Era humorist, author, and founder of the Toledo Blade newspaper. Charles and Evangeline Locke came to Hollis in the early 1900’s, and their first summer was spent in Old Orchard. They fell in love with Maine and decided to settle here, where Evangeline had relatives. Mr. Locke purchased a large parcel of land in Hollis and built a magnificent estate in this wilderness. The exterior of the Locke Mansion is a striking three stories high with the frame built of field stone containing mica from the nearby countryside and highlighted with a brick finish. The front of the home contains a stunning porch extending the entire length, curving to each side, and highlighted with a copper roof. The Locke Mansion is truly one of the most elegant homes in Maine. The historic Locke Mansion is a beautiful brick and stone home with large barn, inground pool, and 2-car garage, all on 9 acres! Distinct moldings, period detailing, hardwood floors, a widow's walk, sauna, spiral staircase, screened in porch, and more! Endless possibilities await! Bring your family, friends, animals, and imagination. This one-of-a-kind home is a must see!

    Maine is a beautiful state and this home is magnificent.
    I wonder how long the swimming pool “season” is there?

      Generally? June, July, August, some of September. And even then, sometimes the water may be a bit brisk if it’s not a heated pool. 😉

      Short but very sweet pool season I’d imagine. But rectangular pools like this one are ideal for using a floating insulated solar cover, which significantly help retain heat from the sun or heater. Using a gas pool heater without a cover is kind of like running your furnace with your windows open.

    I live in Maine not more than 40 minutes from Hollis…the swimming pool season if a pool is unheated is June 1st to September 1st. If it’s a heated pool you might stretch that by opening the pool the first of May and closing it mid September. I had an unheated pool and opened it May 1st but I grew up swimming in icy cold lakes and Atlantic …no one else in the family got in the water until the 4th of July…lol

    I love drone shots. They should be de rigueur for properties like this. This house has everything one could want. Did you get look at that pool?

    This house made my day-very fanciful, nice woodwork, lots of storage, neat older kitchen. I like when photos are set up to take you from the front door, first floor, second floor and to the attic. The weather vane made me smile.
    thanks Kelly!

    I can’t believe the price for all that property, big barn, other outbuilding and that magnificent house. And of course, they have a boat, and the setting is lovely and looks very private.
