We love this fall-inspired tablescape featuring white pumpkins, driftwood, antlers, and simple white linens atop a rustic table in this oceanfront barn in Brooklin, a beautiful setting for hosting loved ones for Thanksgiving. The Brooklin House is a stunning designer-appointed Midcoast oceanfront estate on the market and offered fully furnished, with a solid vacation rental history and a gorgeous renovated barn inside a former boat house, a perfect venue for hosting farm-to-table dinners, retreats, and social gatherings.
The Brooklin House comfortably sleeps 14 (10 people in the main house and 4 in the barn apartment) and is a popular vacation rental destination. “No detail is left undone at the Brooklin House,” says Laura Farr, the Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty agent representing the seller. “It’s totally organized, totally up-to-date with technology, which is what potential buyers really appreciate.”
The main 4-bedroom house has an additional private penthouse suite with a deck overlooking the ocean, plus a 2-bedroom apartment in the barn. “What drew me to Brooklin House initially was its great bones, versatile space, and unparalleled and ever-changing tidal views,” says the seller, who is an interior designer and renovated the Brooklin House into a turn-key gem.
“Many guests have requested a venue to entertain and extend hospitality to their family and friends while staying at the property, from a larger event to intimate summer parties like lobster bakes. Larger event requests have included Thanksgiving and Christmas gatherings, chef experiences, rehearsal dinners, wine-paring events, anniversary and small wedding celebrations, art classes, yoga and spiritual retreats, and business conferences,” says the seller, interior designer Victoria Hamilton-Rivers. The Owl Barn, a former boat house right on the water, was recently renovated with these requests in mind and finished in July.
“From its inception, my design concept for the Owl Barn was to create an inspiring multi-use space that could be tailored to a variety of needs,” says the seller. “It will be christened this November at a private Fall Dinner for 24 local friends I am hosting.”
“The Owl Barn is magical,” adds agent Laura Farr.”It could be set up as a gallery or entertainment space with ample room for the entire family and friends to gather.” The 1,600 sq ft space has an event capacity for up to 75 seated guests.
