This distinctive circa-1875 home is located in the historic district of Camden, Maine, only a ten-minute walk from the downtown shops and the picturesque harbor.
Camden is a must-see for anyone seeking a low stress environment in gracious surroundings. Pedestrians have the right-of-way on Main Street. We have one traffic light - a half mile out of town. And the village is a year-round tourist destination for its fine restaurants, numerous cultural offerings, world class sailing, four-season outdoor activities, and unsurpassed natural beauty.
You will soon be saying what we say, "...and we live here!"
A short distance east of town on High Street, at number 34, the house welcomes guests from a graceful wrap-around porch. French doors from the kitchen lead to a brick patio surrounded by an established perennial garden that is a seasonal showpiece, along with views of open meadow, woods, and Mt Battie in the nearby Camden Hills State Park.
A large two-car detached garage with loft storage rounds out the property.
The house was featured in the January 2001 edition of Country Living magazine after extensive renovations including interior reconfigurations, wide pine floors in the master bedroom, all new bathroom fixtures, an Indiana limestone kitchen floor, new plumbing and electrical service, and a 9-zone heating system with a high efficiency Buderus boiler and a combination of high and low temperature radiators and in-floor radiant heat.
Other recent infrastructure improvements include installation of gas logs in the master bedroom, new 30-year shingles, all new composite shutters, a brick side entrance with granite step, a poured concrete basement floor and reinforced foundation, and a new asphalt drive.
