Atlantique, one of architect Fred Savage’s true masterpieces, was commissioned by John Jacob Astor’s grandson in 1904. Awarded National Registry status in 1992, the 14,500 square foot tudor mansion was masterfully restored in 2000. The entire estate is landscaped for utmost privacy that dramatically presides over the ocean and Porcupine Islands. Atlantique is one of few properties on Mount Desert Island that features all of the amenities and solitude of a private estate, yet steps outside the gate brings owners and guests into the heart of Bar Harbor. We wonder though if one would even want to leave the confines of the estate with its dramatic and magical gardens, USGA putting green championship croquet court, and myriad secret spots for repose. If so, tide pools on the shore, fine restaurants and shops downtown and world renowned Acadia National Park are all close by.
