Watch a dazzling sunrise overthe Lubec Channel... swim and exercise in your private pool.... find joy in a New England fishing village far from the maddening crowd.
Located in the most eastern town in the US, this 3 Bedroom, 1.5 bath customized New England Farmhouse, built in 1912, with 2192 square feet, is in a quiet neighborhood within minutes from the center of town, stores, restaurants and the local elementary/middle school.
The house's front entrance is reached by ramp or stairs with a welcoming entryway with plenty of room for coats and boots. Modifications and updates to the original house create a comfortable and spacious living area filled with natural light and an easy walk-around floor plan.
Ramps, wide doorways and passageways, lever-style door handles and faucets, and kitchen and bathroom modifications make the first floor handicapped friendly.
The heart of the home, the kitchen, has ample space and offers plenty of cabinets, an island stove surrounded by a breakfast bar, a pantry to one side, kitchen office to the other, and a wood stove, and opens to the sun room with sliding glass doors to a backyard deck and 1 1/2 acre side lot with fruit trees and small pond.
The original living room with tin ceiling and bay windows opens to a parlor or dining room with adjacent full bathroom with large double sink and a soaking tub/ shower with grab bars, allowing use as a first floor apartment as needed.
Two large bedrooms on the second floor have wide windows for breathtaking views of sunrise over the Lubec Channel, Quoddy Head and Canada's Campobello Island. One bedroom connects to an unheated storage or playroom (with lights and electricity) over the length of the garage. The third, smallest bedroom on the second floor is adjacent to the laundry/ half bathroom.
The two-car-sized garage has one room, heated with propane, for a car and utility sink, and the second room where you can indulge yourself with an Endless Pool swimming pool to swim against a current or exercise, and then use the walk or ride in shower.
The swimming pool, domestic water and the sunroom's radiant floor are heated by a solar hydro array. The home uses town water and has a septic system and automatic generator.
The house is about 2 miles from the West Quoddy Head Lighthouse, Quoddy Head State Park and the easternmost point in the U.S., 3 miles from the FDR Memorial Bridge, and about 6 miles from the Roosevelt Campobello International Park. Lubec, a peninsula made up of peninsulas with 96 miles of coastline, is at the gateway to the Bay of Fundy, averaging 20 foot high tides. There is an increasing amount of focus in Lubec on the creative arts as well as outdoor activities such as bicycling and hiking, with multiple public lands and hiking trails, birding, lighthouse viewing (5 in the immediate area), and recreational boating.
