Built in 1840, this lovingly restored historic home is a Downeast Maine gem. The house sits on a large corner lot steps away from the confluence of the Machias River and Atlantic Ocean. The house is surrounded by established perennial gardens and mature hedgerows, lending privacy to the outdoor spaces. Natural light streams into the house's ample indoor space through fully restored divided light windows. All of the original plaster walls have been re-glazed. The entire house features its original woodwork and hardwood floors. The house also boasts original hardware and antique fixtures. Working restored fireplaces grace the living room and library and a vintage soapstone stove sits in the dining room-- which easily warms the entire first floor in the midst of winter. A welcoming farm-style kitchen opens to the dining room through an expanded open-concept design. In 2015, the carriage house barn was structurally improved and stands with integrity ready for complete restoration. The sale of the house will include additional materials sourced by the prior owner for the barn restoration. Located in-town Machias, the house sits at the foot of the University of Maine at Machias campus and is central to all points Downeast. The house could serve as a wonderful retreat, a family home for generations to come, and is an excellent investment option for an AirBnB or bed and breakfast.
