Unique, historical Brick and Marble building offers many possibilities. Originally built as a gift to the town of Sandy Point as a town library from heirs of the Alexander Hamilton family, the town felt that they couldn't afford to maintain such a property during the Depression and declined the gift. This stately building is built of brick with substantial marble trim. The current owners have started the renovation, it is ready for your vision. There is also a slab in place for a garage. Water views from the 2nd floor, 3 pretty acres of land. Once in a lifetime opportunity!

    If this lovely building has a flat roof wouldn’t it be great to access it for a roof top garden and bay viewing spot.

      Think I’d drop the trees out front for a better roof-top view of the bay.

        I hope you don’t mean “top” those trees. Terrible for the long term health of the tree. A lovely and quite effective strategy is to hire a skilled arborist to open “windows” in the trees. Skillful and artfully selective branch removal will open up the view and keep the trees thriving. The beauty of the tree’s structure becomes yours to enjoy. Secondary benefit is to lessen the possibility of wind damage during severe storms.
        With any woody plant, the sign of correct and knowledgeable pruning is you have to look twice, or more, to see where the cuts were made.
        But if by “drop” you meant “remove,” I hope I have caused you to think twice. A mature tree is a treasure. Removal might not be the best way to introduce yourself to the town.

      I had the same reaction to the flat roof and wondered if, structurally, it could support the creation of a full scale green garden. What would that be comprised of in Maine? I looked at that roof and my eyes widened.

    Handsome exterior. You’re pretty much starting from scratch on the interior first floor which is actually a good thing at this point.

    I wonder why the outlets are on the trim, just below the window sills. Pictures 6 and 7.

    You don’t often see flat roofs in Maine due to the danger of snow overloading. I really like this one. Lovely area of Maine.

    Wow, this could make such a unique, stylish home if it was done right. I love it.
