Nestled between Annabessacook and Cobbosseecontee Lakes, this post-and-beam Cape with an attached barn is the modern farmhouse you’ve been looking for. The property boasts more than 53 acres: seven acres of lawn and rolling fields, plus beautiful woods with trails and rock walls. There’s 225 feet of west-facing frontage on Annabessacook Lake, but access is difficult due to wetland areas. The kitchen was recently renovated with custom cherry cabinets, soapstone countertops, a slate sink, and high-end appliances.
Sitting high on a double in-town lot across from the Machias River, this renovated 1885 farmhouse is a must-see. All new windows enhance the view. With almost 2,000 square feet, four bedrooms, and two baths, there is plenty of room for a growing family. The property is just around the corner from Bad Little Falls Park, the University of Maine, and downtown Machias.
This historic home is offered for the first time in decades and has all of its charm intact. Located on 1.3 acres in the heart of Yarmouth Village, it offers privacy and expansion possibilities if needed. Original features include fireplaces, paneling and trim, and wide-plank floors, plus an attached barn with a workshop space. There are four bedrooms, two-and-a-half baths, and an in-law apartment with a separate entrance. The large yard offers gardens, an in-ground pool, and wide-open space.
This stunning 1850s farmhouse with four bedrooms and three baths sits on two acres of beautifully maintained land featuring a two-car garage and a picturesque red barn with two stables. Step into the kitchen equipped with top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances and granite countertops. A few steps away is a huge living room, a formal dining room, and another beautiful room that could be used as an office or first-floor bedroom. Period details include front and back stairs, stained glass, an archway, pocket doors, and a pretty mansard roof.
The Yeaton homestead, built by Paul Yeaton in 1826, sits on 40 wooded acres filled with flower and vegetable gardens and rock walls. Original handcrafted details include beams, carvings, chair rails, moldings, built-ins, and mantels on five wood-burning fireplaces. The kitchen features rustic beams and whaling oars, a brick hearth, a beehive oven with a built-in gunpowder closet, a professional Frigidaire refrigerator, and a Garland gas stove. The Andrew Yeaton Room has a wood-burning fireplace and walk-in closet and the Paul Yeaton Room overlooks the north gardens and side yard. On the second floor is Donna’s Room, with a fireplace, bath, and hatch in the floor that leads to a secret spot; a sunny birthing room with painted-wood floors; and a suite added in 2006. Explore trails that lead to a babbling brook and scenery with wildlife galore.
This is a beautiful 1850s Cape situated on 95 acres with lots of privacy. Many recent upgrades include new windows, a two-car garage with a breezeway, a whole-house generator, a sauna, and much more. You’ll find beautiful wide-pine floors and a fireplace in the bedroom and a detached shed with a screened porch that would make an ideal artist’s studio. This is an excellent opportunity to relocate to western Maine and grow your own food. Grapes, blueberries, and fruit trees are already in place.
