Lamoine farmhouse description

This charming, comfortable, classic cape in Lamoine was built around 1820. It is on a beautiful piece of property with over 80 acres of land, apple trees, blueberries, rhubarb, and some of the best drinking water in the world. You will enjoy the privacy this setting provides, yet the convenience of easy access.

Exposed hand-hewn beams in the dining room and master bedroom suite, and a built-in china hutch in the dining room add timeless charm and elegance. Recent renovations provide all the updated conveniences that will make your stay comfortable and easy.

A large yard provides lots of space for barbeques, games, and just relaxing in the sun. A basketball hoop in the driveway provides more fun, and blueberry fields (blueberries ripe for picking in July/August) provide the opportunity to eat one of Maine’s well-known fruits.

The first floor has a large mudroom, a lovely, light-filled modern kitchen, a large dining room, laundry room with washer/dryer, large bathroom with tub and shower, a warm and inviting living room with gas fireplace, and a bedroom with a full size bed.

The second floor has a large master bedroom with a king bed, its own bath with shower, a gas stove, and a lovely sitting area. Across the hall is a large bedroom with two twin beds and an alcove with two wicker chairs and a bookcase full of books. Large windows in both rooms brings the outdoors in, and views of Schoodic Mountain can take your breath away. Both upstairs bedrooms have air-conditioning.

This home has lots of natural light, fields, woods, beautiful sunrises and sunsets, and is often visited by turkeys, deer, raccoons, porcupines, foxes, eagles, and moose.

Luxury linens, lush towels, beach towels, a well-equipped kitchen, games, books, outdoor games (croquet, basketball, badminton), all help to make you feel cozy and well cared for.

Far enough from everything to feel secluded and close enough to everything to thrive.

              Car: Necessary

              Star gazing, that is what you will do every night at this home in Lamoine. The night sky gives a breath-taking view of The Milky Way, Big and Little Dippers, and the millions of other stars that adorn the skies. Blueberries can be picked in late July and August, and fresh rhubarb can be picked May through June.

              This home is situated on a beautiful piece of property located just 4 miles from Lamoine State Park, 5 miles from Lamoine Beach, 3 miles from Blunt’s Pond (fresh water swimming hole), 6 miles from Ellsworth, 2 miles from the Bar Harbor Golf Course (Trenton), 17 miles from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park, and just 45 minutes from Bangor International Airport, Bangor Waterfront Concerts and the new Cross Insurance Center entertainment arena.

              When exploring Acadia National Park don't overlook Schoodic Point where the waves crash with thunderous sounds and the ocean spray leaves salt on your face. Schoodic Mountain is rated as a difficult climb and offers a 360 degree view of the Acadia Region.

              Going to Lamoine Beach or Lamoine State Park is a great Maine experience. When you think of Maine, lobster boats, islands and mountains, this is the place that highlights all you think of as being Maine. Both offer beautiful views of Bar Harbor, the Porcupine Islands, Cadillac Mountain and the beautiful Atlantic Ocean. Picnic tables and grills make it a great place to eat a meal or two.

              Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park are all close by and offer some of the most beautiful scenery in the world. Afternoon tea at the Bar Harbor Inn, and evening coffee and dessert at the Blue Nose Inn are a must do. There are many activities for every age from walking Sand Beach to taking a sail on the four-masted schooner The Margaret Todd.

              Just the peace and quiet will renew your spirit, so bring a good book, or read one of ours, play a game or take a nap.

               

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2003

              About the owner: Mary Henry was raised in Lamoine, left for many years, and returned 20 years ago to visit her parents. While visiting, she met her husband David while out for a walk around the Shore Road in Lamoine. David was the pastor of Lamoine Baptist Church for 25 years. David and Mary have two teenage children.

              Why the Owner Chose Lamoine:
              This lovely home has been in our family for generations. We bought the house from Mary's father, renovated it, and lived there up until 2013 when we moved closer to Bangor. We love the land, the blueberries, the town, the people, and the proximity to everything else we love. It is where our family still gathers and makes memories.

              The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
              The two gas fireplaces, even in the middle of summer, offer an ambience and warmth that is always soothing and inviting. Air conditioning in the master bedroom and twin bedroom upstairs offer relief from the humidity of summer, and makes sleeping an absolute pleasure. The hand-hewn beams speak of the effort that went into building this home in the early 1800's. Our home is surrounded by woods, fields, expansive lawn, apple trees, blueberry fields and the sound of peepers, and the call of eagles flying over head.
