Wiscasset Homes on Tour set for July 13

Event has passed

The collection of homes featured on Wiscasset Homes on Tour, Saturday, July 13 from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m. embody elegance, country living, and a village way of life. Together they decipher the historic components of a small, self-contained community by representing wealth, commerce and agriculture.

Not far out of Wiscasset Village is a 2.5-acre estate with lawns and plantings that sweep down to the Sheepscot River. Owners of this magnificent homestead have brought the 1898 home into the 21st century with a high-end kitchen made for entertaining, a billiard room, a swimming pool, and a gracious patio with river views immediately behind the house. The effect is luxurious and stunning!

In a different compass direction, but not far from Wiscasset Village, is an 1889 farmhouse with Victorian details. The original modest structure has expanded over the last hundred years and now features six bedrooms and six bathrooms. A rolling lawn, suggesting a mown field, leads to the Sheepscot River. 

In the heart of Wiscasset Village, a stately and handsome Federal-style home, built in 1799, is representative of the early merchant class who chose to live in the community’s center where residents provided the labor and ingenuity that drove the commercial life of the town. Today, this well-loved home is filled – inside and out – with the owners’ many personal collections.

Additional homes and gardens, including afternoon tea and homemade sweets in a native plant-rich Village garden, await tour-goers.
