About the Property

Farmhouse, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)

This is a newly renovated mid 1800s New England farmhouse.
It is a mere 2 min. drive/20 min. bike ride to the local beach, which offers a great kayak launch, beautiful walk, or sunbathing/ swimming; and Lamoine State Park, which offers picnic areas, boat access, and pier fishing.
The property is a scenic 15 min. drive from Mount Desert Island and a 30 min. drive from Bar Harbor and Acadia National Park.

The farm house is located in a quiet neighborhood that gives you the old New England charm of quiet days and easy growing up.

It's also just a 10 min. drive from Ellsworth which offers boutique shopping amid its old New England brick buildings, grocery shopping, and rainy day entertainment.

The Downeast area is still a great antiquing destination.
With tons of antique shops, yard sales, and country estate sales, the bargain hunter is sure to make a find.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: My wife and I bought this farmhouse because we saw the potential it had and wanted to remodel it to its potential. It is a wonderful old house with lots of history. It took way too long to remodel it...8 years. I found I just didn't have the time to put into it that I thought. It was a wonderful project and we enjoyed most of the process. As we remodeled it, we wanted to do it in a way that we'd be very happy and comfortable to live there ourselves. We've succeeded in doing that. The house has all new plumbing, heating, electrical, windows, roof, kitchen, 2 new bathrooms. The floors were sanded to bring out the original wood floors and beauty.

Why the Owner Chose Lamoine, ME, USA:
Since we live just down the road, we felt this property made sense to purchase. We knew the previous owner and wanted to continue to care and appreciate the house as he had.

The Unique Benefits at this Farmhouse:
Off the kitchen there is a nice shed or mud room, if the weather is inclement and gives a place to take off wet cloths or muddy shoes and boots. The farmhouse also has a unique white cast-iron farmhouse sink. There are many nooks and crannies that are exciting and unusual for the kids to explore.
