Addison farmhouse description

This comfortable, well-maintained farmhouse is perfect for two couples with 2 children, and a baby, and a set of grandparents; or for 3 couples. Guests who like a rural setting will enjoy a place to sit and drink coffee to watch the sunrise, as well as a sunroom with a back deck for watching the the sun go down behind the trees. A grill is provided. A near-by town landing and ample parking make it easy to trailer your own boat to this property and launch it in a tidal river, with the open expanse of WhoHoa Bay beyond, with endless boating possibilities in waters used mainly by lobster boats. Islands galore for picnics. With permission, five kayaks are available for use.

Hens lay fresh eggs every morning. In season, there are strawberries and blueberries to pick, as well as fresh vegetables to gather for salads and supper. In nearby Jonesport, there are lobster pounds for buying your own lobsters. An organic market is within a 5- mile drive, with other markets closer. Sea gulls, crows, and, sometimes, a blue heron or a bald eagle, sail overhead. The owner keeps a baseball field mowed. There is a bat and ball, and also small lacrosse sticks available for use. The pond has a little row boat for small children to learn to row. The sand beach down by the tidal river is perfect for small children to walk and gather stones and shells, while a tidal island pops up at low tide, with enough bare sand for children to walk to with their parents. There is also a play house for children called 'The Pirate House.' The owner has made paths through her 50 acre woodlot, with signs marking mosses and special locations like ' The Gnome House.' These paths provide fun and exercise for everyone; a special adventure for little ones! Fun for grown-ups as well.

A renovated kitchen, with ample eat-in space, including a high chair, with a spacious sunroom/sitting room off it, provide wonderful places for family meals, family board games and reading and conversation. This is a place for a slower, more thoughtful, quieter 'old-fashioned' summer vacation, with walks, books, quiet times, adventures with flowers and vegetables, berries and birds, frogs, butterflies, dragonflies. There is a good woodland hike around the property, with other nature trails nearby. A free mooring is available in the river or in a nearby harbor, Eastern Harbor, in Otter Cove. Both will accommodate at least 20 foot boats.

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1969

                  About the owner: Susan Rich Sheridan. I am a 71 year old mother and grandmother, as well as a writer, a painter, a walker, a gardener, and a sailor. This farm is my special, beloved place. I moved and renovated the barn which was close to the farmhouse. This is where I now live, on the same property. I am a quiet person, and will not intrude on tenants. I mow the yard, work in the gardens, tend the hens.

                  Why the Owner Chose Addison:
                  I live on this property and have for 45 years. My children grew up here. My grandchildren love it when they come. Since none of my family can come very often, I want to share it with others. The barn is across the yard from the farmhouse with a separate parking area, separate well and septic system. The two units are distinct, and private. I plan to share the eggs, fruits, and vegetables with tenants, as well as (with my permission, and with injury-releases) the row boat and the kayaks.

                  The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
                  Some of the unique benefits of the farm: quiet to write, views to paint, the chance to study wild flowers and wildlife, including birds, with 20 acres of front fields on the tidal river and 50 acres of wood lot. A chance to work in a garden, and to gather eggs. An island right across the tidal river makes for an exciting but relatively safe 2-hour kayak trip. The farm provides a safe, large river area for boating in a quiet, puttering type way, this river is perfect for boating with children or for older people -though the current is strong and must be allowed for. There are many places to paint and sketch. The owner has her own studio in the barn, and encourages writers, artists and craftspeople of all types to come and stay.
