Belfast farmhouse description

Like Belfast, this 7 room home is a mix of old and new, gardens and art, fun and relaxation. It's nestled in a quiet neighborhood, 1 block from the Bay, a 10 minute walk to town, 15 min. walk to the park, pool, tennis courts, boating, fishing and more.
There are 2 separate living areas. The front of the house has a sitting room, simple office, bathroom with claw-foot tub and stairs to a bedroom, study, and bathroom with shower. The open kitchen, dining area, sun-room, is an extension on the back of the house where a set of stairs leads to a second bedroom.
Relax in the shade of plum trees or pick fresh herbs, raspberries, strawberries, and veggies if in season from the raised bed gardens. Non-smokers only. Stairways may be challenging for those with mobility issues and toddlers.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2001

              About the owner: Semi-retired school teacher moved to this very special community 16 years ago to escape the fast paced work life in Massachusetts and enjoy the slower pace of Maine 'the way life should be' ( the state slogan).

              Why the Owner Chose Belfast:
              Located in the heart of Belfast where music,dance, yoga, poetry, theater, art, great food, boating, history, farmer's market, COOP grocery, and parks share sun and moon rises on the Bay. A half hour or less to lakes, mountains, and state parks, a little more than an hour to Acadia National Park.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              The little long house provides indoor separate spaces for privacy, contemplation, light- filled dining, kitchen, sun-room combination, arches and art, levels and surprises of color that uplift the spirit. there are 2 separate sleeping areas, one in the front upstairs of the house. The other in the far back of the house, again upstairs but not connected to the front area for a feeling of separateness and privacy. Outside the flower and vegetable gardens, shaded hammock and sitting area nourish body and soul. WIFI capability.
