    Farm ID 3290
Property Description:

PRICE REDUCED to $159,000. Live your dream on this turnkey, livestock-ready farmstead, with timber-framed, green cordwood home, built intentionally for a sustainable lifestyle.

Passive-solar orientation makes the house bright and inviting, powered by solar energy and heated with a massive Masonry Heater (aka "Russian Fireplace.") Alternative systems include photovoltaic electrical system, wood-fired hot water, Amish washing machine, and a Bison stainless steel hand pump that provides backup for the pressurized water system. House is served by a graywater system and compost toilets.

Ten-acre property includes 120' drilled well as well as a 350-gallon rainwater collection system for crops and livestock. A 24' x 12' grid-tied, fully insulated bunkhouse is perfect for farm apprentices or a rental. Outbuildings include 12' x 28' barn with goat-milking parlor, chicken coop, shop/garage, woodshed, hay shed, garden shed, storage shed, livestock pasture shelters, and outhouse. Perennial food plantings include highbush blueberries, grapes, nut trees, and asparagus. Roughly six acres of hard-fenced pasture---formerly a goat dairy---and a woodlot of about 4 acres. Abutting neighbor has 200 acres. Located in Unity, this property is on a quiet dirt road, but just 4 miles from Unity College, 5 miles from MOFGA & the Common Ground Education Center, and 20 miles from coastal Belfast. Unity is at the heart of the growing Maine community of farmers. Possible owner financing for the right buyers.
