67 Arthur Hatt Road
Welcome to Highfield, a unique property located on over 6 acres of grounds and with over 250 feet of water frontage on Chester Basin at the mouth of Middle River. A private oasis, this property offers a unique combination of land and buildings in a peaceful, tranquil setting, with several ecosystems on the property. The two residences, the Farmhouse and the Studio, each completely unique, can accommodate you and your family, your guests, and other creative ideas you may have. The Farmhouse built in 1986 is a spacious 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom Carpenter's Gothic design, circa 1880, (known locally as an Acadian Peak). This home has had partition walls removed to create a big and bright living room featuring a striking beach stone fireplace on the main level, as well as a separate dining and kitchen area and a full bath. The upstairs boasts a spacious master bedroom, two additional bedrooms, and a half-bath. Many of the walls have artistic images painted by a local artist. For the security-minded or the curious, the basement is a secret 1960s era bunker (nuclear fallout shelter) or more likely a secure wine cellar. The Studio is a treasure chest of surprises. Barn-like in appearance from the outside, reflecting the history of the property, one steps into an imaginative interior featuring a sunken great room with flag-stone floor, towering stone fireplace, vaulted ceiling and massive east & west facing windows. On an intermediate level we find a generously proportioned dining room with north facing wall-to-wall windows, and a galley kitchen opening onto a sunny patio. The lofts, looking down on the great room, provide two spacious bedrooms (one ensuite). The lower level offers a walkout basement with full bath. Both properties were significantly upgraded by present owners.
