Farm ID 3066

    Farm ID 3066
Property Description:

This property was once 50 acres, possibly more - probably farmed in the last century judging from the stone walls. In the 80's it was logged and the owners planted 3 fruit trees; blueberries, and other perennials. There is 1300 ft. of river frontage on the Saco River - approximately 1000 feet. I have had horses on this property for 16 years. We have had chickens and small personal gardens. There are 7 buildings on the property: a double wide modular with an addition and a two car garage and partial basement, totaling 2400 square feet; a big shop/garage; a barn with hay storage; a 20 X 40 greenhouse; a small cabin at the River; and two storage buildings in need of repair.

I would like to preserve this land forever and keep it from being developed. One way to do so, I think, would be to put it into a farmland type trust. I would love to see someone doing diversified farming here.

I believe the double wide modular was put in during the late 70's early 80's. Then an addition was added to one end for a home office. We bought it in 2000 and immediately put in new wiring. We repaired the huge wrap around/L-shaped deck with plastic decking. We put on a metal roof and plastic siding. About 5 years ago, we put in a new furnace and hot water heater. I am currently replacing the plumbing pipes. The whole house has been treated for mold and the crawl space de-molded and lined with plastic, and we installed a dehumidifier. This includes two living areas - one used as office space and the other for living space. There is also a whole house generator.  The house can be divided into two living spaces for possible rental income.

Depending on how you use space, there are 3 or 4 bedrooms. There are 2 + 1/2 baths, but the 1/2 bath is not hooked up right now.

Equipment includes: Tractor; tools; fencing; homemade trailer; dump trailer; flatbed trailer - available for use, but not sold with the house and three acres.

The breakdown of this offer is:

The land owner would like to sell 3+/- acres with the trailer. The rest of the property would be open to be utilized by the purchaser with the possibility of retaining ownership after the current land owner has lived out her life there.

Priced at $182,000
