This four bedroom, one bathroom home has tremendous water views of Jonesport's marine. This in-town home, which was once the parsonage for Sawyer Memorial Church, has a new roof and new foundation. It also has a septic that was recently put in. This is a very unique opportunity to live on a very quiet street in Jonesport.

    Build date might be a little off but I’d be happy with a water view like that! 🙂

      The stove IS really great! Looks like a Home Comfort, multi fuel model, probably from the 50’s; which is pretty darn late for these. It’s a lovely example in seemingly great condition. It is a fully functional natural gas, (or propane), fueled range, with the option to burn wood and or coal for heat and or cooking as well. They are the best of all worlds; on and off grid. Vintage, multi fuel stoves are at the very top of the range for collectible, classic ranges.

      Here’s a better look at one:

    ALL the streets are pretty quiet in Jonesport. it’s a great little rural town off route 1 and if you’re independently wealthy or telecommute 5 days a week, you will get along just fine. there’s a great nature preserve with boardwalks on an island with a bridge you can drive to that’s really heautiful. but only biggish towns are Ellsworth and Machias and both are quite a hike.

      Not independently wealthy, and tied to an ever growing passel of rambunctious granddaughters, so no move for now. Love isolated small towns with water views… Must visit! Have only made a couple of quick trips to Bar Harbor. Planning further exploration soon!

    I think that the house has tremendous potential! That’s a great price for a water view home and it looks like you could easily live here while restoring the home.

    1763 center-chimney cape
    Biddeford, ME

    Growing up in rural Maine, half my friends’ families lived in village houses like this; the other half in center-chimney farmhouse capes out in the woods. You could put someone’s Mom doing the ironing in any of those rooms and she’d fit right in. People don’t really DO ironing anymore, do they? Maybe a shirt at a time, but not a basket of it.

    to amplify my previous comments – Jonesport and several other Washington County towns near it are the iconic Maine towns. Washington County is the “Downeast” you all have heard of and mercifully most of it is stuck in another century unlike Southern Maine. Little towns and small cities that ,due to their geography haven’t progressed much and I mean that in a good way. Many prospered in the 19th century and so are peppered with some pretty impressive mansions built by lumber and seafaring wealthy and those, as we say, “from away”.
    At the same time, as I said before, plan on bringing a source of income with you as it’s also the poorest county in the state bu a wonderful place to live.

      Sounds lovely, though it must be difficult for newcomers to integrate into the community. I’ve known many people who have retired to idyllic spots out of state, only to come home in a year or two.

    We vacation on this part of the Maine coast every other year. It is lovely, but shopping for groceries is a major road trip. I traveled Maine in sales for 30 years selling to retail shops the people I knew were very nice and some would even put me up for the night. Being a native New Englander and small town dweller, if you come to town and expect it to be like where you came from and try and force the town to conform to that model you won’t be liked. However, if you come to town and are helpful and courteous you’ll do alright, some people will need time to simmer a bit to see if you’re ok. This is especially true if you buy some well known historic house, they’ll want to know what changes you’re going to make to the place. I’ve owned three old houses and everyone is in your business as to what you’re going to do to it for quite a while.
