What I love about this home
The owners say, “We fell in love with this house when we saw the Sandy River out back. We’re right in town, but it feels so private with the woods, the field, and the river. The town has a good library, a well-stocked grocery store, and wonderful people. Everything you need for the good life in Maine’s Western Mountains. Our agent will be happy to show you around the property and tell you about the area.”
