Oh my! Circa 1840. Six acres in Maine. $450,000

  • News

I adore this home and grounds! The grounds are stunning. Part of this house dates back to 1815, while the majority was constructed in 1840! The house is situated near Litchfield, Maine, on six acres. The house has large baseboards, crown moulding, wainscoting, chair rails, a gorgeous cooking stove, and wide plank hardwood floors. The hand-dug indoor well and beehive brick oven are features of the original 1815 portion of the house. 2,800 square feet, two baths, and four bedrooms. $450,000.

From the Zillow listing:

What a classic discovery! This traditional six-acre jewel boasts a big private lawn with plenty of solitude, apple trees, flower gardens, and a three-bay garage with a workshop and more room above. There is a beehive brick oven and an internal hand-dug well in part of the original farm house (1815)—so much history! The main home still has the ancient “summer kitchen” connected to it. The main brick house (1840), constructed during a period when genuine craftsmanship was valued, is abundantly beautiful and well-lit. The entire first level is decorated with crown molding and hardwood floors. Looking right to the formal dining room with fireplace and left to the formal living room, the front entrance exudes grandeur.

Additionally, there is a full bathroom with a shower on the left, as well as an office/library with ceiling-height built-in shelving. The kitchen includes contemporary features with a retro aesthetic. There are four large bedrooms and a complete bathroom with a claw foot tub upstairs, each with a new heat pump. This house really is a must-see. Renovations are underway on an addition that might serve as a studio for artists, an in-law room, or a home office, among other purposes!
