Additional Information

Description

This property is located on River Road in Bowdoinham between Richmond and Bowdoinham village. With ~900’ of road frontage, a large yard and fields that have been farmed in the past (think flowers, hay, horses in the paddock), the property with house, garage, garden shed and small pond offers rural living in the desirable town of Bowdoinham, close to Brunswick, coastal towns and I-295. The property is surrounded to the south and west by conserved working farmland, assuring secure and scenic views for new owners to enjoy.

The early 1800s house retains hardwood and pine floors, sizeable closets (one even has a window) in its three bedrooms, and great light from the multiple windows—including south facing glass in the eat-in kitchen and dining room. Sitting at the edge of the property and close to the road, the deck on the south side of the house takes advantage of views of the working farm it abuts. Living room views take in the yard to the north and the fields to the west to complete the scenic rural location.

The property will be sold with a deed restriction that will not allow division, except for the sale of field acreage to the abutting farmer. Certain types of non- agricultural commercial development will be restricted.

All buildings are being sold as is, with full acknowledgement that although solid in construction, the buildings are in need of updates, repairs and renovations. Please see additional information on the selling process of Maine Farmland Trust-owned properties elsewhere in this packet.

Priced at $150,000
