Circa 1795 Saltwater Farm Includes Post-and-Beam Barn & Shorefront on Wooster Cove & Fox Island Thorofare

$5,475,000 | 1795 | 2,782 Sq. Ft. | 5 Beds | 4 Baths | 9 Acres
6 Benson Rd, North Haven, ME 04853

Wooster Farm is an exceptional and historic saltwater farm with 9 acres, spectacular views over fields to the water, and shorefront on both the coveted Fox Island Thorofare and Wooster Cove. The current owner is only the fourth steward of this historically significant property that was once the home of the well-known American Impressionist painter, Frank W. Benson. Many of Benson’s most popular paintings depict his family enjoying the stunning scenery of the farm’s fields and beaches during the summers they spent at the farm. The main house is a beautiful and enchanting center-chimney Federal-style farmhouse with five bedrooms including a main floor primary bedroom suite. Period details include large wood-burning fireplaces, wonderful trim, and many of the original wide-board wood floors; a highlight is the preserved Benson mural in the living room.

The property also has a charming two-bedroom guest cottage with a kitchen and living room, a tennis court, and a boathouse. A beautifully restored historic post-and-beam barn where Benson once painted offers a variety of uses and there are still splashes of colorful paint on the wall where he mixed paint and cleaned his brushes. The stunning setting features attractive and varied shorefront with two pocket sand and pebble beaches and a deep-water granite pier with a ramp and float system on the Thorofare. The property is divided by Crabtree Point Road and there is 327 feet of shorefront on Wooster Cove and 733 feet of shorefront on the Fox Island Thorofare.
