PRICE REDUCED! This home is now being offered far below its replacement value, and is a tremendous opportunity to own one of the most extraordinary properties in all of Maine. Situated on almost 11 acres in the town of Leeds, this historic home is a ''true'' Colonial, having been built in the late 1700's, during the time of the American Revolution and the birth of our Nation. Today, this home has been lovingly restored by her current owners to a level seldom seen outside of museums and historic sites. A few of the more notable features include hand-hewn timbers fastened with pegs, three elaborate fireplaces, and the original dug well (no longer in active use), which has been preserved behind inlaid glass flooring. The overall attention to detail is exemplary, even down to utilizing locally sourced lumber and materials expertly fabricated by local craftsmen. Though authentic in style and build, modern amenities abound throughout the home. Enjoy the efficient, late model Buderus boiler, updated electrical and plumbing systems throughout, and a hard wired generator. Renovations also included modern windows and insulation to conserve energy, and increase comfort throughout the Maine winter months.In 2008, a second Colonial style home was built alongside the original 1769 home, and the two houses were joined together. Together, they offer over 5,000 square feet of elegant living space. The newly constructed home was done in such a way as to complement the original structure in both style and function. The 2008 addition includes a basement level to house all mechanicals, storage, and a fully mirrored home fitness studio. The first floor features a large living room, dining room, and nicely sized kitchen. On the second floor of the addition is a great room with floor to ceiling windows framing a picturesque view of the front yard and Androscoggin River, as well as three additional bedrooms, and a full bath.
