Waterfront Property in Tenants Harbor, Maine
There’s also a workshop in there, replacing the workshop in a good-sized outbuilding now used for equipment and storage. Upstairs is a huge playroom featuring a nine-foot antique slate pool table that’s truly a showpiece. And along the back wall of this room is Warren’s toy truck collection. He has hundreds, each one beautifully displayed. (Doubt he’d part with those.)Off the playroom are three additional bedrooms, plus a room Evelyn currently uses for her sewing, needlepoint, and crafts. She’s made countless beautiful things over the years but had none to show us. “The kids always want everything I make right away,” she explained.
Later that day, as we drove back up the St. George Peninsula toward Thomaston, munching on a pineapple tart that Evelyn had insisted on giving us as we were saying our goodbyes, we thought how sad it was that none of Warren and Evelyn’s children were in a position to take over the property. Apparently, it would be too far away from where they all live and work, too expensive for simply a vacation home, and so forth. It’s not always easy to keep a place like that in the family.
But we’ll bet that even after many years, which might include several owners, it’ll still be known as “the Davis place.” And rightly so.
