The mighty oaks that surround this home have grown considerably over the past 85 years, though little else here has changed. For those in pursuit of an antique project, with many of the right bones, including a legendary, sunset facing pocket beach, take note. A first floor room layout includes a petite kitchen, spacious fireplaced living room, a wide, glassed porch with a far reaching ocean vista, a bedroom and a bathroom. Upstairs, two additional rooms are found. Historically, both rooms have been used as bedrooms, one facing forest, the other facing ocean. Original elements abound, including poured glass windows, gas lamp lighting, distinctive brick fireplace, diamond muntin windows, wide plank ceilings & Victorian exterior trim. Make no mistake about it, this property is destined for a significant overhaul, that will eventually make for something quite special. To aid in the renovation, a new septic design has been drawn up for the existing septic system that is needing to be replaced and a fresh home inspection report is available for your review. While a lot will need to be revived here, both the roof’s shingles and chimney are recent upgrades. Beyond the charming antique residence, the big draw is the incredible sand & gravel pocket beach, in full view from the home. Right in the backyard and effortless to access, this remarkable stretch of shore is deepwater and plays host to top level boating, swimming, playing, beach walking and most any other marine pursuit. Facing West, warm light and sunsets over Blue Hill add to the appeal of this distinctive offering.
