Nimaha is a fully restored historic residence located in the sought-after Beauchamp Point neighborhood. Privately sited on 1.91± waterfront acres with panoramic views of the Penobscot Bay and its islands, the 5,170± square-foot main residence was originally built in 1903 for Edward Bok of Philadelphia, PA, an early rusticator with roots in architecture and the arts. Designed by Cyrus Porter Brown in 1898, famous for his interpretation of the Shingle-style home, Nimaha is a striking example of Maine’s rich architectural heritage.Comprehensively updated and restored by the renowned firm of Cold Mountain Builders in 2015/16, the residence retains its historic character while incorporating modern amenities. The grounds, which include 354± feet of shoreline with a lovely pebble beach, were sensitively refurbished to reflect the original design by Frederick Law Olmsted. Masterful stonework, arbors, perennial beds and mature specimen trees complement the home’s understated elegance and blend perfectly with the site’s natural beauty. A period carriage house with four bedrooms, and a deep-water dock complete the estate.

  • Fine craftsmanship with decorative plasterwork, coffered ceilings, custom moldings and restored yellow-birch wood floors throughout
  • Breathtaking views of the bay from almost every room
  • Four-bedroom home with four-and-a-half baths
  • Four fireplaces, one of them on the porch
  • A covered porch spans the front of the house facing the water
  • Deep-water dock
  • 1,900± square-foot carriage house with four-car garage
