This magnificent estate offers a classic coastal setting with a historic residence and panoramic views of Penobscot Bay. Located in the highly sought-after Beauchamp Point neighborhood, Lyndonwood includes approximately 4.4± private acres with 388± feet of accessible shorefront, two pretty pebble beaches, a guest house and a location for a deep-water dock. The well-maintained grounds feature masterful stonework, including an impressive sea wall, flowering shrubs and perennials, garden beds for cut flowers, and mature specimen trees that complement the home’s understated elegance and blend perfectly with the site’s natural beauty. 

Cyrus H.K. Curtis, a publishing entrepreneur from Philadelphia, commissioned Cyrus Porter Brown to build this vacation residence in 1902. Brown is famous for his interpretation of the Shingle-style home that was popular at the time for its use of local and natural materials in a minimalist approach. Curtis’ only child, daughter Mary Louise, married Edward Bok of Philadelphia who worked for Curtis in publishing, and the estate has remained in the Bok family until the present day. The Curtis and Bok families are known for their philanthropic endeavors both in the Camden/Rockport area as well as in the city of Philadelphia.
