This magically refurbished 19th century Acadian farmhouse invites the nature lover both inside and out. The interior was stripped to studs, ceilings raised, upper and lower decks added & two bathrooms tastefully tiled. The custom kitchen, master bedroom and heat-floor ceramic tiled sunroom are completely new. The list goes on - pine and birch flooring, new wiring, plumbing & insulation throughout, energy & cost efficient electro-thermal heat system. Every aspect has been lovingly attended to and the results are dramatic; color, flow of space, river views and Lennox Passage, plentiful glass in the 4 season sunroom where screened doors encourage summer breezes. Welcoming charm envelopes the visitor with apple trees, birdsong and large lot providing a secluded natural surround. Decks & glass doors adjoin the whole. There is a private beach, large fenced in area for dogs and acres of undeveloped woods adjacent. Yacht club, post office and convenience store nearby. A very special place.
