Property History
OPEN HOUSE 8/6  -  11am to 2 pm!
During the nineteenth century Red Beach was a thriving Calais community built around the now-defunct Maine Red Granite Company and the Red Beach Plaster Company. A survivor of that heyday is the McGlashan-Nickerson House, constructed in 1883 by Scottish immigrant George G. McGlashan. Acquired shortly thereafter by Calais Justice Samuel H. Nickerson, the rambling two-story Italianate house sports a long ell extending to a carriage barn. The house sits on six acres and is among the largest and most architecturally significant houses in Red Beach and is the only one of Italianate style. It shares a long drive with and the 1854 Gothic Revival Joshua Pettegrove House, one of only a few houses in the state set in a landscape designed by Andrew Jackson Downing., the founder of American landscape architecture. These houses are both individually listed in the National Register of Historic Places and form the southern boundary of the village running upriver to the north. Just downriver, adjoining the McGlashan-Nickerson House property, sits the visitor’s center for the St. Croix International Historic Site, owned by the National Park Service but located well to the east on an island in the St. Croix River.
 
Property Description
The house offers approximately 5,400 SF in the main house and 750 SF in the barn. It features three bedrooms on the second floor of the main block and a number of others in the ell. The first floor features a parlor and dining room with pantry off the central hall with Italianate style details including molding, panel doors and two tiled fire places. A hall extends to the kitchen through which is the woodshed. The ell extends to the carriage barn which features a large sliding door, a second story loading door, and three horse stalls. The basement is unfinished concrete floor with a cut red granite stone foundation.

The boundary of the Lease Premises includes approximately 1.5 acres which is a portion of land historically associated with the property. The boundary includes the house, barn, shed, gravel access and parking area, and an entrance drive which is a shared access to the neighboring property; a Gothic Revival style cottage built in 1854 and is also listed on the National Register of historic Places.
 
Additional Notes
The property is owned by the National Park Service and it is being offered as a long term (60 year) lease opportunity to a lessee who will rehabilitate the property. The cost of rehabilitation will offset the rent - resulting in a low-to-free rent amount over the duration of the rental agreement.
