    I’d say more of a renovation than a restoration but someone is trying to fix up the old girl. Still a lot of potential there and on a great lot. I’d love to see what’s under that aluminum siding on the tower. Honestly if I wanted to live in Maine I’d be tempted.

    There is most definitely potential here. You can see someone tried to strip the molding from the paint that has been applied over the years. It is a very daunting task. Seriously, “A” for effort!

    Lets talk about siding. I only ask that if you insist on vinyl siding your historic home, please, don’t let the contractor talk you into siding over the trim around the windows! This is detrimental for three reasons.

    First, it greatly affects the exterior visually by making the windows look like they’re sliced into the facade. With no trim now the visual balance is thrown off.

    Two, It creates an historically inaccurate exterior.

    Third and MORE importantly, if someone chooses to remove the siding, they will now need to deal with the fact that the contractors cut off all of the window ledges on the left and right of the base of the windows! This will be a very difficult task to undo.

    Sometimes contractors find it easier to remove the ledges and not put the trim on, but please disregard these recommendations if you’re an old house lover. Take an assertive voice and state your needs. Find a house that has been done properly and tell them to mimic this effect. In many cases historic homes should not be treated the same as modern homes of the day. There is a different level of application needed to keep these homes from being wiped off the face of the earth forever.

    I like the simplicity of the interior. The exterior looks a bit like an Easter egg!

    God bless them for stripping off the wallpaper and saving the plaster. Hope they are on to happy new pastures, and have a quick, satisfactory sale.

    Be still my heart. The view and remoteness is what gets to me. I would be there in a heart beat if I could. Maine seems to keep calling me and I am in California. Must be a coastal thing.

      As Kelly has stated numerous times… Maine never disappoints! I would love to tackle this house! However, the pink and purple needs to go! Looks like there is a LOT of work to do with this place. I too live in California!

        If you repainted the exterior, the Salmon and Pink house across the street would be so lonely! This house is a local landmark.

      California to Maine! No way. Cali is way cooler 😉
      I’m in CT. Wanna switch?

      No seriously, Maine has some gems and beautiful locations!

    its a nice little town halfway between Ellsworth and Machias. has some good little shops, a restaurant or two and even used to have a movie theater (i saw On Golden Pond there)and a department store call Frankensteins. if you move here, plan to be independently wealthy or work in Ellsworth as the only industries here are fishing and tourists. there are many points sticking out into the ocean festooned with little summer place (i used to own one). taxes aren’t bad and it’s Maine – what the heck more do you want?

    Ugh. So Aggravating. Why do they never take pictures of the attic / top tower room?!!! As a creative soul / artsy type, that is what I want to see and what would sell me the house. So many ads / realtors ignore the important stuff. Who cares about the main floors, show me the weirdness / unique architecture. ( 😉 LOL and yet very serious too.) {Shrugs.}
    [Been lurking / looking here a bit and needed to vent.]

      Hahah well I agree with you partially GayHermit. I always want to see all of the house in photos. Especially tower rooms!! But I also care about the main house as well 🙂

    Why oh why does Maine call to me? I live in the Midwest and am accustomed to snow and cold so the climate might not be an issue.
    This is a dream house indeed! So glad the walls are bare, but sad that the outside window ledges have been removed. This home would be a wonderful project to undertake!

    I have been looking at this site for a few months now, loving what I see, and now it’s time to comment. Maine is a wonderful place. I live in Wisconsin, but am getting ready to sell and go to Waldoboro, where my brother lives in a beautiful old button factory. Google button factory Waldoboro Maine and you’ll see why. I’ll either be a snowbird or buy one of these lovlies I see here…as the BF is $$ to heat. But I digress, just wanted to say if Maine is calling you, think about going. Slow paced. High property taxes though, nice people and beautiful places to explore.
