A truly unique hidden treasure. Located at the end of a secluded valley overlooking the backside of the Saddleback range and the High Peaks of Maine sits this idyllic country retreat. Set on 250 private acres, this antique farmstead features an absolutely charming 1800's Cape that was moved, reconstructed and set on this stunning location in the 1960's. The in ground pool features much privacy and views of the mountains and landscaping. With no busy roads and set down a private lane, this antique retreat is incredibly rare and unique. While currently set up as a three season retreat, the house could easily be converted to year round use with additional insulation and a new heating system, however, the two fireplaces and a propane furnace ward off the chill nicely on those cool spring and fall evenings. The first floor features the kitchen, the living room, 2 bedrooms and a shared full bath. There are two more bedrooms and a half bath on the second floor. Nice paneled walls and built-ins grace this charming retreat. With over 250 acres and bordering thousands and thousands of conservation land, this is a true sportspersons' and naturalists utopia; hiking on the Appalachian Trail, hunting and fishing are all on or nearby this special property. Abundant grouse, deer, moose and turkey. Beautiful old stonewalls, gardens, orchards and over 30 acres of fields harken to an earlier time. This is truly an escape from everyday life. Return this property back to farmland or enjoy the peace and seclusion of your own private getaway. 45 minutes to Rangeley and Farmington and just over two hours to Portland.
