The culmination of multiple historic properties is what makes this home so special. Two 1700s homes from Eliot, Maine were moved and put together in this new Kennebunk location in 1990. This magnificent farmhouse sits in the heart of the historic district of Kennebunk close to restaurants, marinas, beaches and shops. The gorgeous sage green exterior with traditional deep red trim is just one of the many classic elements you’ll find. Its private grounds stretch over 1.6 acres of mature plants, with both a patio and a gazebo for you to enjoy. Careful attention to detail can be seen throughout the home through its high end materials, such as Mexican Stone in the kitchen, Fieldstone in the mudroom and Marble throughout. Recently updated systems include a new septic, and roof. The interior of the home perfectly balances fresh and original, with newly painted exterior, and period appropriate wallpaper. History captured is seen through commissioned, hand painted images of the home and neighboring properties on the dining room walls. Period wood trim adorns the multiple windows throughout the light filled home. The kitchen cabinet colors carry in from the exterior. The large kitchen has plenty of space for a table, along with a built-in desk. Downstairs you’ll also find both a formal living room and a family room with beamed ceilings and huge hearth affectionately called ‘the gathering room.’
This home features a total of 4 bedrooms, 4 bathrooms and 6 fireplaces. Of the 4 spacious bedrooms in the home, 3 of them feature their own fireplaces. The primary bedroom has a massive walk through closet to the primary bathroom with a walk in glass and tiled shower, and separate vanity. In the space above the garage, you’ll find a second family room, a private built-in office, and a guest bedroom with ensuite. This special property is a must-see, if you desire the quintessential New England home.
