One of the oldest and finest houses of its time in Lincoln County, this circa 1752 cape is rich with history. This home was built to exacting standards with special touches throughout including raised panel walls in the elegant living and family rooms, a beautiful built-in corner cabinet with detailed carving, high ceilings in most of the downstairs and an exceptionally spacious kitchen. A total of 5 fireplaces in this home, with an enormous 9 foot wide brick fireplace in the dining room. Take a look behind this impressive fireplace to see the hidden area where the original occupants smoked their meats and hid when under attack back in the 1700’s and 1800’s. This room has wide pine flooring that runs the entire length of the 23′ room with no seams. Large kitchen attaches to the old summer kitchen, pretty special in its own right. Good Morning staircase in the front of the home, second staircase in the center of the home. Five bedrooms upstairs, one full bath. There are numerous large closets in this house, a rarity for its age. Large barn to house your cars, equipment or toys. Wait until you see the view! This section of the Dyer River features the Upper Oxbow, a unique serpentine shape. Long pastoral views run down to the ever-changing river, where you can put in your kayak and spend the day on the water. The acreage consists of beautiful open meadow, stone walls, woods, large garden area, vintage lilacs and Rosa Rugosa and possibly the oldest and largest cedar tree in the state of Maine. Much restoration has been completed, with plenty more to do. Bring this very special home back to its original splendor, you’ll be so glad you did.
