  1. Fun to see other properties on the Medomak…..this one is on Waldoboro ROAD, but is in the nearby town of Bremen. If you love antique homes, this one was built in 1720 !! The price is $199 k–but realtor notes"all offers considered". I love the remaining period details( and most of all the wide pumpkin pine boards.) but the kitchen is rough and does NOT date from 1720. ( I think of the damage found under the floors of our BC, and have to wonder about the condition of the floors and behind the walls in the Bremen home.) Home is on 15 acres, yet taxes were under 3k last year. The separate lot across the street is 10 more acres and actually fronts onto the river…but the attached barn next to the house has 3 levels and there is a garage. Heating is forced air–no mention of AC. Definitely a project home, lots of small rooms, but what potential: http://mainecoastproperties.com/cgi-bin/listman/e… <3

    • P.S. the riverfront property is sold separately, but maybe the conservancy would want more property that you could access and write off taxes, like the BC land.

    • If you'd like a smaller home built in 1764, which has been gutted and all new plumbing, electrical, heating, etc. done–but restored with the smaller rooms and period details, there is another place in Bremen on 2 acres–asking price is $ 169,000. Taxes are listed under $1,900.00 last year. It does have a fireplace, a family room and master downstairs–2 full baths.– One bath up and one down, I hope ?–The upstairs bdrm.s are cozy with lots of skylights, eaves and beamed ceilings. VERY steep staircase, the way they were built in the 18th century. http://mainecoastproperties.com/cgi-bin/listman/e

  2. Love it all! The media room, the office and game room all would be utilized! Hubby works from home on bad weather days this office would be great for him and can use it to bed down family (grandchildren when they all visit at the same time I've already decided the loft goes to the oldest grandchild (Jason). This is really a great work of art I hope whoever wins this home will preserve it! As for storage how often do go look for something? Usually in the summer but in the winter come on…you don't need something that bad! The barn I would love to open a shop of all Maine Antiques!!! How cool would that be?

  3. This house brings tears to one's eyes. The beautiful home and barn and property…I love it! Yes, My children and Grandchildren would love spending time here with Grandma. And my artist friends, they would be welcomed too…a place to relax and be surrounded by the beautiful natural setting. A walk on the path to the pond…everywhere I see, there's a place to set up an easel and just paint. Workshops too could be held possibly in the barn with some installed lighting. It's just too beautiful to describe. And I know that during Autumn, that we would be surrounded by colors of Fall. What a grand place to have Thanksgiving dinner too! This is a dream come true home. All of your that put in so much hard work to renovate and repurpose this house did a terrific job so stand back and take a handshake! Love Maine!
