Over the years Belfast has seen many changes. This home, built in 1853, has seen those changes and kept up with the times. You'll find in the information package the homeowner has documented the changes since she took over as its caretaker in 2007, now it's the time to pass along this historic home to the next generation. Upgrades in systems (new furnace in 2017 and gas fireplace) allows for the owner to rest-easy knowing that the home will continue to chug along even in the cold Maine winters regardless if you are here, or not. After the demolition of the barn (approximately 1998) the new kitchen was built to provide extra space for entertaining and is the ideal place to host friends and family for a dinner party. The kitchen is adjacent to the deck, so steps are few when you want to dine al fresco in the warm summer nights with the light sea breeze. Lovers of architectural salvage can appreciate that each door (and door knob!) was replaced to fit within the period of the home. A window from a church in Cherryfield, Maine was salvaged and turned into the main floor vanity mirror - and a local artist hand painted the vanity itself. This home is a treasure, and worth taking the time to tour the home at length with the 3D Virtual Tour. What makes this Belfast home so unique is the extra land. We recommend taking the time to walk around the lot to fully appreciate this *not quite a double lot* inside the bypass. This extra space gives the homeowner a sense of air-space that few downtown homes provide. If you take a walk or drive-by you may wonder if it's a park, or garden, that's been cared for over many generations. The way the lot is situated/oriented allows for an abundance of natural light all throughout the day ready for the gardening enthusiast. Just a few blocks towards the water the City of Belfast maintains (Right of Ways) to Penobscot Bay (Ocean/Beach) The closest is located at the end of Allyn Street. .5 mile to heart of downtown belfast's intersection. <
