One of Old Town’s most outstanding and desirable properties, the Sanford Dempsey House is an historic in-town estate that offers modern luxury and enduring craftsmanship. Originally built in 1780, the home has been updated to contemporary luxury standards while preserving its extraordinary heritage. With over 9,000 sf of luxe living space, the home has six bedrooms, six and a half baths and impressive rooms for entertaining and comfortable living. A double garage and expansive driveway offer private, off-street parking for 5 cars—right in the heart of the historic district.

Renowned architect Allen Greenburg designed and executed a multi-million dollar renovation and expansion of the home in the mid-1990s. Greenburg is known for his work on prominent buildings, including the Supreme Court and State Department buildings. The home was renovated and modernized further, between 2014 and 2017, and today offers all the amenities one would expect in a contemporary luxury property.

Located in the heart of the historic district and only two blocks from fine restaurants, boutiques and the waterfront, this special property offers luxury living at its very best.
