This exquisitely restored/renovated Antique Cape (circa 1790) has been featured as the cover story for Down East magazine. The spacious home(2700 sq. ft) is nestled on 83 acres of meadows and woodlands with 1/2 mile frontage on the Sheepscot River in historic Alna village. The home features 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, 3 fireplaces, comfortable living room with classic brick fireplace, large dining room with large fireplace, fully equipped kitchen, a sun-filled sitting room overlooking the Sheepscot River, a dressing room, washer/dryer and an oversized 2 car carriage house.
Period details abound including 24' floor boards, color washed plaster walls, wrought iron hardware, plus hand-painted murals and stenciling.
Located half a mile down a private and scenic gravel drive, this home's privacy is assured. The site is naturally landscaped with indigenous plants including the traditional lilacs, fruit trees, a grape arbor, clematis, and wisteria. It is a unique ecosystem at the confluence of the fresh and saltwater portions of the river. Wildlife abounds and a former owner ran ornithological studies for Cornell University.
We love unusual, unique properties with lots of acreage that can not be duplicated. This fits the bill. Being from the deep, hot and humid South we love the weather year round. We have also been impressed with the genuine hospitality you find from the locals- It probably helps being just a bit off the beaten track- but still only 15 minutes from two great towns- Damariscotta and Wiscasset.
Property located in the historic post card town of Alna featuring the community of Head Tide. Only 10 miles from Wiscasset, Damariscotta and 15 miles from Boothbay, the property is secluded, yet close to all services and shopping. The property is one mile north of picturesque Sheepscot Village and offers a half mile of river frontage on the undeveloped Sheepscot river. The Sheepscot River offers excellent saltwater/brackish Striper fishing
( canoe provided). The property also borders 1/2 mile brook offering fresh water trout fishing. Property includes over two miles of nature trails through varying terrain, all of which is heavily forested.
