899 County Road, Lubec, Maine, 04652
Located on the outskirts of the coastal community of Lubec, this well maintained 1930’s cape has been lovingly cared for over the years. The paved drive leads to manicured lawns with shade and fruit trees. A small single car garage sits to the back of the land and was used more for yard equipment, then todays much larger vehicles.
This cozy cape offers a large eat-in country kitchen, dining room, double parlor and full bath on the first floor. Each room has a different pattern on the tin ceilings - And they are in great shape. The Dining room offers hardwood floors while the double parlor has carpet over the hardwood. The home has a nice flow to the floor plan. A 6 x 26’ porch runs across the front of the house and is hidden from view by trees planted across the front which also keep it cool on those hot summer days. The second floor has two small bedrooms and a 16.11 x 8.3 master bedroom with a large closet. The landing has a closet and is spacious enough to put a desk.
The home has had the wiring updated and a new roof put on. The yard is neat and well maintained. A large oak tree occupies the side yard and provides shade for the summer months. Lubec is a coastal community and summertime finds visitors from across the US and other countries. It is the most easterly town in the US and home to the famous West Quoddy Head Light House which marks the most easterly point in the United States and greets the sun first each morning as it spreads its rays across our nation.
Lubec has over 90 miles of shorefront and the area offers over 12,000 acres of preserved public lands and parks. Take a hike on one of the many trails at West Quoddy Head State Park, Hamilton Cove or the Pike Lands; grab your kayak or canoe and launch from any number of public sites to experience the ebb and flow of our great tides and explore the island studded bays.
Lubec is also home to Summer Keys – a music program that attracts adult students from all over. They come here every year for a week or two to study with artists that have mastered their chosen instrument and on Wednesdays the staff put on a grand concert – free to the public.
There is so much to share – from the pristine beauty of the area, the diverse programs offered in the summer, the sleepy winters that bring about winter activities – both indoors and out. Downeast Maine – a great place to be year-round or seasonal.
