    Wow! $31.25 a square foot! That is a wonderful bargain for a building that offers so many possibilities. And it seems to be in good shape with gorgeous grounds.

    Wow! That’s a biggie.
    Realtor.com has mostly the same pictures & while the lake is nice & a selling point, inside is where most people will be spending the most time so one picture of the lake would seem sufficient & pictures of the large workable kitchen & living spaces would have been nice. What is odd is Realtor.com & Sotheby’s show 5,000 sq. ft.but the description say 12,000. What am I missing?

      Judging by the size of the place, 12,800 sq. ft. is closer and probably on the conservative side. The house has three full floors plus the basement! I’d have to make sure all my kids and grandkids had a GPS tracker so I could find them!

    This has to be the most unusual (and late) Greek Revival I’ve ever seen! What a house!

  7. I found more photos here:

    Also, this beauty was listed for 899 in 2018, then reduced to 799 and now 399. I really hope to find more pics of the expansive kitchen.

  8. This is the (long) story of the history of the Cardigan Mountain school that used this building for their all boys school until 1995.
