A fine example of early federal architecture
, this building brings you back to the early days of the Damariscotta
area. No doubt, it's study construction is why after a couple of hundred years, the building still stands strong. The house has gone through a few alterations since it's early beginnings. One may find interesting antique assets under the present facade, both inside and out. The entrance is into a formal federal style front hallway with stairs rising to the side. The front hall is flanked by two formal rooms on either side with working fireplaces. What remains of an earlier "keeping room" is located to the rear, now a dining room. The dining room flows past a large exposed brick chimney with a cast iron fireplace on the dining room side, brick oven and cauldron on the kitchen side with a cook stove. Everything comes together for a warm and cozy living space. A half bath for the first floor. On the second floor are two large bedrooms, a full bath and two smaller bedrooms with laundry room over the kitchen area and a rear second staircase.
This property is located just outside of the twin villages of Damariscotta & Newcastle. It can be reached in just about ten minutes. It's location is just far enough from the bustling town centers of Newcastle & Damariscotta but close enough to take advantage of the wonderful amenities these two towns have to offer. In the other direction is the small hamlet of Jefferson and beyond that, the larger city of August. You will enjoy the tranquility of working in one of the gardens surrounding the property or perhaps spending time in what was once Jefferson's earliest post offices, now located on the property and prime for historic renovation.
It does't take long for just the right person to come along and fall in love with such an amazing property. The pastoral setting, the historic details of the main house, the gardens and forested lands, all perfectly blend into the home you have been searching for. Give me a call and I would be please to set up a private viewing to lead you through this wonderful property.
