From the Zillow listing:


This charming farmhouse is centrally located near Bucksport, Castine, and Blue Hill with a short drive to Bar Harbor and Bangor International Airport. This property has been in the same family since it was built in 1910. A spacious farm kitchen in the ell is faced with a comfortable front porch. The entry into the house has a vintage mudroom area which connects the house to the barn. Geometrically patterned wood floors in the front living room and back sitting room are a nod to the days when such designs were used to add a touch of sophistication to modest homes. The living room has a deep bay window seat to soak up the morning sun and maybe take a snooze and a gas heater for chilly nights. A sitting room, or perhaps the dining room, has a woodstove that heats a good portion of the home. There is a 1/2 bath on the main level. Upstairs, two bedrooms with multiple windows and vintage closets are a comfortable size. A full hallway bath with recently installed waterproof vinyl planking, completes the finished space. Original hardwood floors are found throughout the remainder of the main house and much of the original molding exists. The attic area over the ell section of the house is easily entered through a hallway door. A connected barn could make a good workshop space with access to a second level. Outside, there is plenty of room for gardens. The back side of the house has been recently regraded. Cable and high-speed internet available at the street. Evening distant views of the lights on the Penobscot Narrows Bridge. This property is in need of repairs and is being sold As Is, Where Is.
