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.
