A house for sale in Unity is listed on the National Registry of Historic Places and has been lovingly restored to its original beauty.

How Big Is This Place?

My husband and I used to travel to Unity on a weekly basis when his grandmother was living there. Each trip, we’d pass this stately brick house that sits back from the road, right on Main Street. I always loved the elegance of the place and imagined that it must be beautiful on the inside. So when I saw it listed on realtor. com , I couldn’t resist taking a look at the pictures which show a 3 bedroom 2 bath home that’s even more amazing than I could have imagined.   The house has undergone a complete restoration, with gleaming wide-plank pine floors, a twisting spiral staircase, and multiple fireplaces. But it’s the history of the place that surprised me.

When Was It Built and How is it Connected to Bates College?

The Hezekiah Chase House , as it stands, was built in 1826. The 2. 23-acre lot was purchased by Stephen Chase in 1782 and he built a cape-style house there sometime around 1810. That original house is the ell portion of the current house. Stephen’s son, Hezekiah, built the brick portion of the house in 1826.   He raised his family here, including their son Joseph, who would go on to have a son named George in 1844. A scholarly boy, George Colby Chase would grow up to become the second President of Bates College.

How Much Do They Want for It? (Can We See Inside? )

I think I would tell that story to everyone who visited if this were my house. It could be yours, as it’s currently for sale, listed on realtor. com by Stephanie Cross with Better Homes & Garden Real Estate/The Masiello Group. For $949, 000, you could be the next owner of a piece of Maine history. Check out the inside and you’ll be sold.
