Property description

Modernized/ restored/renovated Antique Cape (circa 1790) has been featured as the cover story for Down East magazine. The spacious home(2700 sq. ft) is situated on 83 very private acres of meadows and woodlands with 1/2 mile frontage on the Sheepscot River and several miles of private hiking trails near historic Alna. The home features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 3 fireplaces, comfortable living room with classic brick fireplace, large dining room with large fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, a sun-filled sitting room overlooking the Sheepscot River, a dressing room, washer/dryer and an oversized 2 car carriage house. Also, great Winter/Holiday rental- fully winterized. Consider beautiful fall weather in Maine.
Also popular for holiday gatherings!

Period details abound including 24' floor boards, color washed plaster walls, wrought iron hardware, plus hand-painted murals and stenciling.


Located half a mile down a private and scenic gravel drive, this home's privacy is assured. The site is naturally landscaped with indigenous plants including the traditional lilacs, fruit trees, a grape arbor, clematis, and wisteria. It is a unique ecosystem at the confluence of the fresh and saltwater portions of the river. Wildlife abounds and a former owner ran ornithological studies for Cornell University.

The Sheepscot River offers excellent saltwater/brackish Striper fishing

( canoe provided). The property also borders 1/2 mile brook offering fresh water trout fishing. Property includes over two miles of nature trails through varying terrain, all of which is heavily forested.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

Why the Owner Chose Alna, ME, USA:
We love unusual, unique properties with lots of acreage that can not be duplicated. This fits the bill. Being from the deep, hot and humid South we love the weather year round. We have also been impressed with the genuine hospitality you find from the locals- It probably helps being just a bit off the beaten track- but still only 15 minutes from two great towns- Damariscotta and Wiscasset.
