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.

          The smallest city in Maine, combining the best of the land and the sea, Belfast is a community that attracts artists, performers, writers, adventurers, health enthusiasts, farmers and ecologists, birders and boaters.Within walking distance you will find outdoor Thurs. evening summer concerts, the Friday Farmer's market and evening Art walk, live theater, yoga and dance classes, City Park with pool, playground and tennis courts, etc. . For the health of it, get a massage, acupuncture treatment or Ayurvedic consult. Shop at the local COOP market or eat out, vegetarian, Thai, Vietnamese, Laotian, Italian, Chinese, Mexican, gourmet,seafood, some on the Bay. Save room for dessert at a new old fashioned ice cream parlor or bakery. Take a walk or fish over the foot bridge over the Bay. Rent a kayak to experience it up close and personal or sign up for an hour row on an 8 person Community Boating Row. Rainy days can be spent at the local movie theater, library, historical museum, or shopping for fabric, books, art, yarn, gifts, clothes. We also have a Green Store for those ecologically conscious. Belfast is full of surprises listed on the COOP bulletin board: poetry readings, Reiki treatments, garden tours, wine tastings, puppies, or piglets for sale!


          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.
