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.
