Have you been dreaming about a place in the country with lots of room and land for farming? You need to see this colonial style home constructed in 2021. The home has nearly 3,000 square feet of heated living space and an additional 600 unheated covered space. Barn, shop, and a successful business all set on 34± acre. It is located in the heart of Maine at 68 Dunn Road Dexter.
Country Home – This 2-story home was constructed in 2021 and has an incredibly low maintenance metal clad exterior and roof. Enjoy the views of the private farm pond and distant hillsides from the 10 X 34 covered porch. The home has 13 rooms with 4+ bedrooms and 2 baths. The open floor plan of kitchen, dining and living area includes an area of nearly 750 square feet. There is an attached greenhouse and wash room that are currently unheated. The home is entirely heated by wood. Add an oil heater if you like or enjoy the lower cost and comfort of wood. A full concrete basement has more than enough storage space for canned goods and other necessities of life.
Barn & Land Want to be self-sufficient? You need space for some livestock and the barn has plenty of room. The land includes about 5 acres of cleared field including pasture for the animals and a newly constructed pond for water. The balance of the 34 acres is forested land and open wetlands. The home sits at about 400 feet above sea level and the land slopes away from there to 350 FASL. A couple of small unnamed brooks run though the property and the combined forest and wetlands provide great habitat for the area’s wildlife.
Shop – The current owners are running a successful butcher shop for wild game. The shop has a walk-in cooler, large freezer and all the equipment and tools of the trade you will need if you are interested in continuing the business. The business is being sold with or without the home and real estate. If you are interested contact us for a price. This building could be used for many other purposes should you have no interest in running your own business.
Dexter & Penobscot County – The town of Dexter is called the “Heart of Maine” partly because of its geographic position in the state. The charming little town sets on the western edge of Penobscot County on the Moosehead Trail between I-95 access in Newport and the town of Dover-Foxcroft. The town is well positioned just 27 miles from Bangor International Airport, less than 1 hour to Moosehead, Maine’s largest lake and an hour and 30 minutes from the largest ski area in Maine, Sugarloaf Mountain.
