Additional Information


27 acres, 5 in pasture, Some big expense items alrdy replaced- almost all windows new- well and septic about 6 yrs old.  Furnace about 2 yrs old.  House has some "vintage features"   ;)  but 100% livable.   Has been used for small poultry operation for past few years.  Ceilings are low- bad if you're tall, but supe efficient on heat. 

I can send some pix of the pastures during the summer.  There are 25 apple trees planted in the "high density" format.  They are about 6 years old- with some care they should produce a few bushels anyway at this point.

I will be selling this to some who is a farmer or non-development.


oh, I posted this about a year ago.  Took off b/c of covid.   Some pix on Zillow are old.  (last year someone questioned me on the condition of the house - hey, you aren't gonna get a perfect house and 27 acres that is 30 minutes from both Portland and Portsmouth for this number.   Look in northern Maine, northern NH.  Some people from York county commute to NE Mass for work.)
