This is an opportunity to live an authentic Maine life in one of the most thriving communities near the coast. Graze your own animals on 8 acres of open fields, harvest your own crops and firewood, and live a cozy life in an 1815 extended Cape with first-floor master bedroom, and a large unfinished second floor offering all kinds of potential. All systems are in good, relatively new condition. Renovations and upgrades have maintained the original charm and spirit of this two-century old classic. There’s a wonderful sun room leading to a private deck, a large open eat-in kitchen, open sunny living room with small charming den, the master bedroom and full bath, and an additional large room for many possible uses. Behind the house is a 10’ X20’ hen house in good condition, with lots of storage room for gardening tools.
Alna is a short drive to the coastal towns of Damariscotta and Wiscasset, as well as the state capitol, Augusta, and just an hour to downtown Portland. The Sheepscot River runs through the town, providing swimming and boating opportunities. With a small population, Alna has much open space and several conservation tracts that are available to hikers and picnickers. The town is proud of the Alna Meetinghouse, dating back to 1789, and a number of other historic buildings owned by the town. K-8 students who live in Alna can have tuition (equivalent to the cost of public school) paid to the private non-sectarian school of the family’s choice.
