With magnificent views from rooms through out the house, several wooded acres to ensure privacy and serenity, and a commanding presence atop Ox Hill, this well maintained cottage boasts 11 Bedrooms and will easily accommodate larger gatherings. Westover was custom built between 1901 and 1902 by noted New York architect Grosvenor Atterbury of New York, who subsequently designed the well known Acadia National Park  Norman French style Gate Lodge on Jordan Pond Road as well as the signature Gatehouse near Lower Hadlock Pond in Northeast Harbor.
