Single Family Residence, Cape,Multi-Level – Machiasport, ME



A RARE FIND! This 18th century home remained in the same family for 200 years, and has had just 2 owners since. This remarkable home has borne witness to countless historic events and the early settlement and growth of the picturesque town of Machiasport. The breathtaking 180 degree water views include a birds-eye view of the historic village and, facing west over the water, the sunsets are legendary! This highly unique cape-style home exudes warmth and charm with its colorful, hand-painted interior decoration. The property is comprised of 3 adjacent waterfront lots totaling 24 acres, as well as a separate road-front 2.5 acre lot with a productive blueberry field (approximately 1 acre of blueberries). The land is truly stunning with acres of open pasture dotted with ancient apple trees rolling to the shoreline along the broad tidal estuary of the Machias River, and nature abounds as eagles, seals, and shorebirds fish the salty waters. There are easy to use steps down to the waterfront for canoeing/kayaking, and a perfect spot to moor a sailboat. A bonus is the long, peaceful walking trail through a magnificent sugar maple grove and spruce forest. Recent improvements include a new well, septic system, plumbing, electrical, and heating system, and all new architecturally appropriate Marvin windows. This house is located at the end of a town-maintained road that serves only 2 other homes. The extensive road and water frontage will ensure your future privacy, and this large property affords many possible building sites for future expansion. Truly, a treasure awaiting your enjoyment!
