78 acre farm in Buxton, about a 20 minute drive to Portland, two hour drive to Boston. Former owners raised cattle, kept horses and chickens, had a large garden plot. The past few years, the land has been used for hay/forage. Small stream at edge of field which may be useful for irrigation. Would like to lease the house/farm for up to five years (can be annual lease if preferred). Doesn't necessarily need to be an organic farm, but would prefer limited use of pesticides/herbicides. The land includes 2+ miles of mowed paths through the field as well as paths through the woods. An ideal use may be keeping/boarding horses.
House built in 1820, three bedroom, two bath. Being updated with new flooring and paint, adding insulation to attic. Propane heat with possibility of a woodstove. Home office. There is also an In law apartment attached to main house. One bedroom, living room, bathroom and kitchen. Gas heat. New paint and flooring.
