Step Back in Time in This 1820 Farmhouse on 15 Orrington Acres
If you love open spaces and the idea of country living in a vintage farmhouse, this Orrington property is for you.
What's On the Property?
My husband Jim and I have admired this property for the 11+ years we've lived in this town. The house sits on 15 acres, which include a good-sized farm pond, an orchard, and multiple outbuildings. We imagined sitting in the yard, watching ducks land on our pond, or having coffee in the house while deer feast on our apples.
How About the House?
And let's talk about the house. With 4 bedrooms and one and a half baths, it's the perfect size. I had only seen the outside of the house until it went on the market, so I was interested to see the interior pictures. I had no idea that this house was built in 1820 and the owners have kept the vintage farmhouse feel to the rooms. If you're looking for modern amenities, this is probably not the house for you. But if you want to turn back the clock and live in a vintage style, it's a great place. I particularly love the fireplace and built-ins in the living room and the woodstove in the kitchen.
Where is It Located?
The house sits on Dow Road in Orrington, just minutes from Brewer and Bangor, so it's a great combination of country living with easy access to 'town.' The property is listed for $449,000 on realtor.com by Tricia Quirk with ERA-Dawson Bradford Company. Take a look through the pictures and see if this might be the easy, quiet lifestyle you're looking for, stepping back to a quieter time.
