Own a historically significant piece of Hallowell. The Governor John Hubbard house is 50% Federal style, 50% Cape/Greek Revival and 100% character & charm. At 3.1 acres, it is certainly one of the largest lots in the downtown area - and boasts beautiful stone & granite walls, heirloom lilac bushes, a sloped wooded area, and a large flat lawn (great for bocce ball) that extends all the way to Warren Street. Inside, note the desirable period details such as wide-pine flooring, large brick fireplaces, and many original blown glass window panes have been maintained; and the second floor front bedroom with a vaulted ceiling is particularly unique. There have also been many recent practical updates: a natural-gas heating system, major structural repair to the shed, chimneys rebuilt, windows reglazed, etc. Walking distance to all the shops, restaurants, bars, public parks, galleries etc. that downtown Hallowell has to offer. A very special, well-cared for home.
