After philanthropist David Rockefeller died in March, his heirs put his Upper East Side townhouse up for sale. Now Ringing Point, his 14.5-acre estate on Mount Desert Island in Maine, is on the market, too. The Knowles Company is offering the property, which includes the main house, Rockefeller's study, and a guesthouse, for $19 million. Scroll down for a look around.

Ringing Point is located in the town of Seal Harbor, Maine, on Mount Desert Island.


It was purchased by David's father, John D. Rockefeller, in the 1960s.


David's wife, Peggy, designed the seven-bedroom main house in 1972.


She also designed the gardens around the property, including the ones near its granite swimming pool.


Here's another view of the gardens.


The estate is named for the #4 bell buoy that rings quietly off-shore.


The main house has seven bedrooms and five full bathrooms.


The home is set among towering pine trees.


The living room has floor-to-ceiling windows and two fireplaces.


It features views across a lawn to Great Harbor.


The kitchen has Wolf appliances.


There's a seating area nearby with a raised-hearth fireplace.


Here's one of the seven bedrooms.


Here's another bedroom.


The home is cozy, with fireplaces almost everywhere you turn.


The grounds are full of native flora.


There's also an orchard.


The study was built close to the water on one of the property's rocky points.


David Rockefeller wrote his memoirs in the space.
