Rare opportunity to live in a historic village along the tidal Sheepscot River. The view, across the meadow, filled with wildflowers, is uninterrupted because this homestead property flows across the quiet country lane into the waterfront lot. The 1.64 acres waterfront lot is a grandfathered build-able lot with potential for a dock and float. With water views from the gracious screened porch, the afternoon sea breezes are most soothing after a rigorous paddle on the river or tending of the gardens. The interior of the home is grand with high ceilings, original trim and fireplaces. Wonderful natural light illuminates each room. The master bedroom is complete with an ensuite bath and generous dressing room. Ambiance galore with 5 wood-burning fireplaces and 1 wood stove. Imagine reading in the library beside a roaring fire. The dining room boasts a built-in china closet with ample space for your fine dishes & cutlery. The kitchen work space is functional with a sunny breakfast nook near the warmth of the wood stove. Off the kitchen, a powder room, laundry and mudroom lead into the expansive barn complete with horse stalls, tack & groom's room, loft for storage and a 5 seater historic privy. Enjoy nature and a relaxing lifestyle in this charming jewel nestled in the Sheepscot Village of Newcastle where the Sheepscot and Dyer Rivers meet to form the famous reversing falls. An outdoor paradise for fishing, boating, birdwatching and swimming. Convenient 10 minute drive to the twin villages of Damariscotta-Newcastle where you will enjoy Skidompha Library, Lincoln Theater, a multitude of restaurants, cafes,, galleries, & town marina,. It is comforting to know that Miles Hospital/LincolnHeath in Damariscotta is affliliated with Portland's MaineMed for premier healthcare.
