Imagine a week or two in our 19th century cape which sits looking out over fields to the tip of the Pemaquid River, just 3 miles from New Harbor, Maine. Recently renovated with updated plumbing, fresh paint throughout, new and tasteful furnishings and 2 new bathrooms. PLUS new for the summer of 2014, a totally new kitchen ell. It will have new appliances, soapstone countertops with barstools, gas range and a comfortable family area with small gas fireplace. (Photo's to be posted in May.) Relaxing in the midst of aesthetic details - wide-plank floors, beadboard paneling in bathrooms, fireplace and a hand carved wood railing to the second floor - add to the charm and ease-of-living in this home.
The new sun room has been completed with views of the Pemaquid River and now offers another area for dining. The master bedroom holds a queen size bed on the main level and living room with a dining ell are also on the first floor. Two bedrooms upstairs, with a connected small room that serves as a fourth bedroom, known as the treehouse room, makes this house flexible and comfortable. Nearby swimming is at Pemaquid Beach or the Bristol Mills swimming hole. Take the boat out to Monhegan Island from New Harbor!
