Abstract

"inside story" piece on Damarin, an 1850s Greek Revival home overlooking the Sheepscot River in Wiscasset. Built as a simple farmhouse, it has been added on to over the years. Leon Chatelain and his wife Nancy bought the deteriorating 36-acre estate in 2001 and after a restoration, are listing it for $3.15 million. Chatelain, a Washington, D.C. architect, had Thomas Hubka's book, "Big House, Little House, Back House, Barn" in mind as he did the restoration of the connected farm buildings. Much of the landscaping dates to the 1920s and is attributed to the firm of Frederick Law Olmsted. The grounds were restored and reinvented by Bill Phinney Site Planning and Landscape Design of Wiscasset. With a selected list of private Olmsted clients in Maine, listed by original owner and location.
