Own a refuge in Maine with this adorable, newly-renovated, classic cape built in 1820. Brick-built, a rarity in Down East, Maine.A true retreat on a picturesque 2-acre lot with vintage apple trees, blackberry bushes, barn, and storage shed, this 3-4 bedroom, 2-bath house preserves colonial features, but has many updates. AC/Heat pumps were added in '21, energy efficient and still under warranty, along with new baseboard heaters. Downstairs is a new bath, common room with new wood stove and plenty of storage, a dining room/library with built-in bookshelves, and a living room that could be instantly converted into a 1st-floor ensuite. Eat-in kitchen includes porcelain tile, custom wood countertops, plenty of pantry space and cabinetry, built-in seating, and natural light. Upstairs are 3 bedrooms, a full bath with storage, and a bonus space that could be used as an office. Warmly refinished, original pumpkin pine floors and updated lighting fixtures throughout. Fresh paint: August, '21. New roof and cedar shingles installed in '13, along with a gravel patio in '21. Working or schooling from home? The Spectrum cable connection is very fast. The barn has power and a cement floor on the 2nd story, giving it potential as an artist's studio or home office. (The Franklin Historical Society says the barn was once a creamery.) The home sits 1 mile east of the center of quaint and friendly Franklin--just a 15-minute commute to Ellsworth with its 90-min flight to Boston on Cape Air. Follow the flights of bald eagles over the house for 200 yards and you will be gobsmacked by the beauty of Hog Bay. Ride an ATV on the Sunrise Trail, a 1/2-mile north. Cool your wines or homemade apple cider in a granite-encased basement. Visit Acadia National Park/Bar Harbor, a 30-min drive. Or sip a drink on the patio, watch wild turkeys cross your woods, contemplate the rich history of this property, and enjoy the privacy. Your safe haven in Maine quietly awaits you.
