For those who love historic houses a rare offering:Heart Tree, a graceful 1839 Federal house - one of the few remaining houses of the period designed and built by the renowned team of Thomas Lord architect, and master builder William Carelton for Daniel Faulker, one of the early settlers of Blue Hill. After the death of his first wife Faulkner, grown wealthy in the ship building business, remarried and on land he had acquired in 1819, ordered the house—luxurious for its time, with many distinctive architectural details to be constructed for his wife and himself. After his death th...e house with inhabited by members of his family until the end of the 20thcentury. The house itself has two separate living areas with many original features, wide plank pine floors and hand forged iron railings. It includes twin parlors, a formal dining room, country kitchen, family room, four bedrooms and two baths (one with a Jacuzzi tub), an office with custom made desk and cabinets, a third floor writing retreat and storage attic and basement with laundry room. Adjoining the house is a large visually commanding barn (2,800 sq ft) with hand hewn beams, completely renovated in 1999 by its present owners as an institute of study and research. The barn contains two floors, an open gallery, built in bookshelves, nine modern offices (or bedrooms) and is completely independent of the main house with a separate furnace, a full kitchen and bath with shower, ample storage rooms yet retaining the charm of its original look and feel.Located on a hill in a pastoral setting of completely fenced 4.4+ acres overlooking wide, rolling, meadows, the house is surrounded by landscaped gardens, rose bushes, lilacs, forsythias and giant trees (one planted in 1815). It seems a private eerie far from the world, yet is conveniently located only 6/10 of a mile from the Blue Hill Bay and the picturesque town of Blue Hill, with its noted musical center, Kniesel Hall, art galleries, yacht club and golf course, fine restaurants, shops, churches, grocery shopping and modern hospital. Occupied since 1992 by a famous scientist and wife, a noted author, this property is a haven for the creative work of artists, sculptors, potters, or for any independent small business or specialty farming. 5,580+ sq ft.
