Known as the Captain John H. McLarren house, after an Eastport sea captain, this Greek Revival home was built by master craftsmen before the American Civil War. Remarkably preserved, it retains old world charm: two large south-facing parlor rooms, antique marble fireplaces, hand-painted doors and cupboards, and five bedrooms including a 19th century 'birthing room.' Most rooms have an enchanting view of the Canadian coast and Passamaquoddy Bay, which is a summer home to migrating North Atlantic Right Whales. Flowing into the Bay of Fundy, it was a favorite sailing corridor for Franklin and Eleanor Roosevelt when they lived on the adjacent Campobello Island. The house is cool in the summer, and warmed by an exceptional working granny stove in the kitchen. There are several wooden cupboards; an original service pantry off the dining room, and a downstairs office. The house has a full length basement and an attached barn which could be beautifully converted into a carriage house. The present owners use the barn as an artist studio, but the full length loft could also be made into studios. A total of 0.26 acres and nicely shaded, this deep lot extends to Sullivan St. The house would make an excellent Bed and Breakfast, book store, or gallery. It is situated near the Eastport Arts Centre, a lively venue for art, cinema, and a world class amateur theatre group. The local Tides Institute runs a summer arts program for international artists. A wonderful, close community, Eastport has become a destination for those seeking solace, outdoor adventures, and clean living.
