Exceptionally Resplendent Historic Home with Attached Commercial Space!
Nestled on a 1.27-acre within the idyllic town of Machias, the 'Clark Perry House' resonates 19th century vibes with glorious Italianate architecture, a period-accurate color scheme, and stunning decorative brackets. Originally built in 1868 by lumber baron Clark Perry and later updated by his granddaughter Emma Means, the 6,000+sqft home affords a rare opportunity for someone seeking both profitable versatility and leisurely comfort. Delightful touches from the 19th century are evident throughout the interior, while the art deco updates from Ms. Means add a punch of glamor and glitz to the expansive abode. Boasting a common theme of elegance, the property features a granite foundation, professionally restored walnut double front doors, a grand foyer, beautiful wood floors (maple and pumpkin pine), high ceilings, custom molding, oversized antique glass windows, interior walnut doors with mercury glass knobs, majestic 7' bay windows, and a parlor with a fireplace. Offering customization options, the eat-in kitchen is equipped with wood cabinetry, a spacious pantry, a dining area, natural light, and a second staircase. Utilize your imagination to create the culinary experience of your dreams in this uniquely styled home. Each bedroom is generously sized. Although supremely rare, one full bathroom includes a cast iron pedestal bathtub.
Entrepreneurs, small business owners, and modern creatives will relish the commercial space. Formerly a restaurant, the back of the home may be perfect for a cozy café, sandwich shop, salon, art studio, marketing firm, or law office. Additionally, the commercial space has an insulated unfinished second-floor with fabulous potential or extra living space. Other features: fully insulated attic, 16' x 32' ADA-compliant deck (2021), 2-hour firewall between residential unit and commercial unit, may be zoned entirely as commercial, and much more!
