Bangor, ME


Pardon me while I scrape my jaw off the floor!

BATHE IN ARCHITECTURE! Originally designed by Wilfred Mansur, this Frederick Appleton house has many intact ornate features from the stained glass windows, terra cotta fireplaces and grand room sizes. Overlooking Bangor with glimpse of the the Penobscot River, this home was once the Osteopathic Hospital in the 1940's then later used as a center for independent living for disabled adults. This large single family home would be ideal for growing family or at home business plus you have an attached single family 2-3 bedroom home at 157 Cedar St. Hardwood floors, grand foyer entrance, dark wood staircase & moldings, portico windows and tall ceilings; all built to last. The house has been plumbed with a full wet sprinkler system that would have to be activated to meet possible zoning changes to expand the multi family or other use. Rental income from 157 Cedar apartment is over $1100/month. Located across the street from Vice President Hannibul Hamlin home (15 Fifth St), With passion, this home would be worth revitalizing to yesterdays style. Seller prefers to schedule showings on M-W-F between 9 AM and noon.
