The house at 7 Lafayette St. is one of only a few buildings that have survived from the early settlement on Munjoy Hill; it was built between 1849 and 1851, making it one of the oldest still standing dwellings on the hill. Architecturally the house is a traditional side gable cape and has retained a great degree of the architectural features as seen in the 1924 assessor's photo. Since 1999 the property has been owned by the renowned George S. Carhart - Historian of Cartography and Early Modern Europe. Antiquarian Map Consultant. Historic Research Consultant. Engineering Archivist. During his and his family's stewardship the property has undergone comprehensive updates too numerous to list. Beyond moving the interior into the 21st century, the Carhart's conducted an infrastructure and exterior restoration worthy of a National Preservation Award. But history is just that - history and there is much more of it to be written in this charming home in one of the most desirable and walkable locations in Maine and beyond. You are steps to all that you need to enrich mind, body and soul. 1,559sf, 4 bedrooms, 2.5 baths, open concept first floor, updated kitchen, pocket garden/yard, off-street parking and all new hemlock clapboard siding, corner boards, frieze board & window trims with Havelock Wool & rigid foam insulation in 2021/2022.
