From the Zillow listing:


This is a turnkey gem! This New England farmhouse, tucked away on 37 surveyed acres of fields and woods, belonged to an adoring family for years. Sunlight spills into this two-story house through its many windows. The downstairs features a full living room, dining room, bathroom and kitchen, plus a great room that was built as an addition and offers sweeping views of a beautiful field, deciduous forest, and apple trees. The second floor has 5 rooms which could be used for offices, reading rooms, libraries, and bedrooms. There are 2 parts to the basement, the original basement and a new basement at the rear under the great room. The back end of the acreage has 250′ of road frontage along the Lake Road with sweeping south facing views of Boyden Lake across the road. The land across the road next to the lake is not buildable. The house sits a mile from fresh water Boyden Lake and its public boat launch, Pennamaquan Lake and Pennamaquan River to the west. Five miles eastward, saltwater access is via the Robbinston public boat launch on the St. Croix River, which opens into Passamaquoddy Bay, home to the highest tides in the world. There is also an ATV trail across from the Lake Road that offers easy access to 100s of miles of trails. The town of Robbinston hosts Mill Cove and Pulpit Rock for coastal exploration and clam digging with just a few hundred people living here full time. It has salt water frontage and lakes and streams running through it, with several farms, a campground, a maple syrup business, a post office, a historical society, and a volunteer fire department.
