October 11, 2022

This could be a really cute house! Love the waterfront! This home was built in 1940. It is located on one acre in Robbinston, Maine. The home features a small front porch, a large back deck, cedar shake siding and a lot of natural light. The house could use some updating and undoing of past renovations, but the price doesn’t seem bad. It was originally built to house workers at the nearby sardine factory. Beautiful views of the Passamaquoddy Bay and the Canadian Shores. One bedroom, one bathroom and 450 square feet. $179,000

From the Zillow listing:


The undeniable smell of crisp salt water. The cool sea breeze. Classic, alluring ,and rich in history, this cottage was most likely one of the many cottages that, at one time, dotted the village of Robbinston. Built as a home for the workers of the nearby sardine factory in the early 1900’s. This coastal Maine cottage is perched at the water’s edge. Stunning views overlooking the Passamaquoddy bay and Canadian Shores. The simple, yet stunning, property consists of one large room that serves as the living room , dining room, and kitchen. One small bedroom is tucked away to the side. Sit on the expansive full-length deck and enjoy the salty breezes as you gaze out over the Bay — you can’t build this close to the water anymore!!
