    What can you say about perfection?!?

    The house is cozy and clearly loved. The octagon potting shed is positively dreamy. But those grounds – WOW. The aerial photos are amazing. The work that went into that – I can’t imagine leaving it. Truly a gardener’s paradise.

    All that for that. ☺️

    I want to live here for the rest of my life and learn how to make preserves in that happy kitchen.

    Everything about this house is happy, actually. The grounds alone show that someone love this house and took great pride in it, but something about the inside says so, as well.

    The colors are bright and welcoming, the floors in the living room/parlor are a knock out (I am a fan of the wide planks used in older homes.) It’s a paradise. Flat out wonderful.

    I hope whoever purchases this house has the wherewithal for the upkeep of its gorgeous gardens!

    Must be very cold in the winter. Glorious gardens, but a short season. I could not live in that climate, even though this is a picture perfect house and grounds. A dreamhouse for a gardener who doesn’t mind staying indoors all winter and planning her garden.

      It IS very cold in the winter. And it’s a long winter! But for those of us who enjoy staying inside, reading in front of the fire, knitting and planning for spring (which is very late) it’s a dream. This is truly a dream of a house.

      I looked up Friendship, and Wikipedia says it does have very cold winters, but the summers are often very hot and humid. I was wondering how well the house is insulated!

    I absolutely love Maine. The gardens would be gorgeous in peak season. Flowers there just seem to grow bigger and brighter, the grass is greener, the air smells sweeter…I could go on and on.

    That kitchen. Oh my gosh. I’m in love, and I don’t even like yellow.

    I have family that lived there for over 50 years and recently had to move back “home” where the rest of us are around, due to health reasons. They really hated having to move from such a beautiful place, and I don’t blame them. They managed all those winters but said it wasn’t fun. It rarely snows here, and is still in the 90s (I actually went swimming today). I didn’t read the realtor link, but I wonder what heating and cooling system they have. There has been an energy audit and there are replacement windows, the description on this page says. I didn’t notice any window units. At my aunt’s house, I think they may have used their a/c a couple of times a year.

    Big house, little house, back house, barn. What a beautiful place and all those magnificent gardens on less than 5 acres.

    No doubt the interior of that beautiful barn is as handsome as the outside. Country living at its finest and to grow roses like that a gardener’s paradise. A true “working” farm depending upon your interest and ambitions.

    All that is missing is a substantial center chimney with an impressive, grand fireplace. The windows may have originally been six over six.

    Oh my goodness, oh my goodness! Where was that place when my mom was still here? With a yard like that she would have never left the property, heck she may have never left the yard until it had been covered in at least a ft. of snow! Hahaha!

    I think if this house was falling down and condemned, I’d buy this place for the gardens alone! From what I can tell, it looks like the same things grow there, as grow here in Western NY. I wonder what zone they are in? I looked up Friendship to see where it was, and Wikipedia says it does get very cold in winter, but can get hot and humid in summer. So, I wonder what kind of insulation this house has. But, I love it! From that kitchen everyone else loves, to the gardens to that roof! Love it! Just one thing…why is only one half of the roof that wonderful red? I think I’d take care of the other half, first thing! I really like that-if you were giving someone directions, you could just say, “I live in the house with the red roof-the REALLY red roof!”

    Husband & I would buy this in a heartbeat as a vacation home until retirement. May pursue.
    Thank you OHD

    This is a lovely, lovely property at an amazing price. I’m tempted to not leave Maine and just buy this place.

    As for the weather, this is on the coast so it will be cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. I am 35 minutes from the coast and we use our air conditioners all summer long. We had weeks of 90 degree weather. It’s not the south but air conditioning is helpful. Winter are brutal, coast or not but if you are on the coast you are about a zone 5 so you can get your garden going in May instead of June.

    Will they hold this perfect place for me until I get my horticulture degree?

    I know the house – it’s owned by friends of mine. They retired here from Idaho(?) 10 or 15 years ago, and commenced to create an amazing place. The house is actually early 19th century. It had a center chimney, now gone. It is in wonderful condition, with everything updated.

    My dream home if I were 40 years younger! Gardening is my passion and so is the ocean. I’ve visited Friendship a couple times and love the town. A friend used to have a Friendship sloop and participate in the sloop races.

    Love the entire package, but those gardens and the barn are to die for. There’s even a greenhouse. I know this part of Maine, it’s beautiful along the coast…the owners must be heartbroken to leave.

    Well you can certainly add this one to the list of places I’d buy just for their gardens. It’s so convenient when a beautiful garden comes with a nice house!

    Love the home and the property is a fairytale!

    I live in Maine…Downeast…the winters here are no more harsh or less harsh than the winters I experienced born and raised in Illinois! This property is very nice; the love for the place shows. I do wish the center chimney had been restored vice removed, however.
