Current listing of easement properties for sale:
Pollard-Marshall House was constructed in 1782 by Captain Thaddeus Pollard, a patriot in the Continental Army, and is a well-preserved and rare example of a double, late-Georgian style house enlarged in the 1830s, when its hipped roof was replaced with an end-gable roof. Currently for sale, this single-family home retains many exterior and interior features original to its date of construction, including its entry, central staircase, door and window hardware, plaster, and woodwork. Of special note: a swinging partition wall on the second story, an interior well with original counterweight, and two unfinished fireboxes in the attic. The site comprises two parcels of rich agricultural land totaling 16.41 acres with an eighteenth-century bank barn, pond, and a registered American Sycamore tree believed to be 400 years old (the third oldest in the state).
The owners plan to ensure the long-term preservation of their property through a preservation easement that they will donate to Historic New England prior to the sale. The easement will protect the property from future subdivision and development while also protecting site features, the exterior of the house, and important interior features, such as the woodwork, mantelpieces, door hardware and flooring, and the barn.
Taylor-Barry House in Kennebunk, Maine, is currently offered for sale. Constructed between 1803 and 1804 by master carpenter Thomas Eaton for William Taylor, Taylor-Barry House is an important example of high-style Federal architecture in coastal Maine. A preservation easement held by Historic New England protects the historically important features of the house, both for their aesthetic value and as irreplaceable artifacts of craftsmanship. To accomplish this goal, the easement identifies those features that must be preserved as well as those parts of the building that can be adapted to the requirements of modern living.
