Owner info

Year Purchased: 1998

About the owner: I am a painter and teach at three colleges. Living with such natural beauty, with access to a vibrant, creative community, are a blessing.

Why the Owner Chose Sedgwick, ME, USA:
This is a year round house, warmed by the sun in the winter, cooled by oak shade and breezes in the summer. The windows look out at the lovely surroundings. Walking, swimming, kayaking, x-c skiing, snowshoeing, sledding, even running, are all right here on the property. The living room has a piano and drum set (and couches!). It's a great place to spend the summer and winter.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a perfect vacation and year round home. You can make it your creative retreat, and/or your family home with room for badminton and whiffle ball, a place to swim, and sitings of fox, otter, deer, sea ducks, warblers, eagles, osprey, coyote, etc. Within 7 miles, you can buy great food, wine, coffee and books, and send your child to school. The house has varnished wood, clay tile, cork and painted wood floors, enamel sinks and walk-in tiled shower.
