18 Washington Street Extension, Whitneyville, Maine, 04654
This Whitneyville property is near the Machias River and saw mills sites that founded the town in 1845. Built in 1958, this cozy cottage was lifted by the current owner in 2004, moved back onto a full foundation, and then renovated. The current structure has a comfortable living area, open kitchen/dining area with oak cabinets, custom tile work and hardwood floors, bedroom with full bath. Step down into a small living room that makes a wonderful greenhouse and down to the basement from there. The home is well insulated, heats easily with an oil FHA furnace, and has a backup propane wall heater in the basement, plus an on-demand hot water heater. Outside are fruit trees, raised garden beds, and plenty of perennials. Located just a few minutes from Machias, the hospital, and shopping, and very close to the Rails to Trails for walking, ATVs, or snowmobiles. The town has a nice public library almost across from this home and an active community center.
