From the Zillow listing:


Welcome to 1233 Meadow Road in Bowdoin, Maine—a home teeming with character and limitless potential. What appears as a ROW through the middle of the property as an extension of the driveway is NOT a ROW, it is just an access point the current family used to access parcels out behind this property. This has been resolved with their own ROW access to the left of this property. This charming Cape-style New Englander, built around 1940, sits on a sprawling 3.21± acre lot, offering 1,774± sqft of living space. The home features 4 bedrooms and 1 bath and boasts an array of 9 distinct rooms, including a spacious family room with a heat stove hookup and a convenient first-floor laundry room. Set in a tranquil, rural neighborhood, the property combines the best of both worlds: seclusion and accessibility. With over 500 feet of road frontage on a paved, public road, getting to your peaceful oasis is a breeze. The gravel driveway accommodates numerous parking spaces, a generous feature for when you entertain guests or simply need the room. In terms of utilities, the home comes equipped with an electric range, refrigerator, and washer, and it’s heated by an oil fired-forced hot air system with an electric water heater. While the home is in need of updates and maintenance, its deferred condition provides a blank canvas for those looking to create their dream home or take on a rewarding fixer-upper project.
