Links to Interesting Information about “Living in Maine.”
Neighborhoods: This historical area of “the Wiscasset Village” is located across the road from the-400 acre Bradford Farm built in 1794 by Alden Bradford. He was a descendent of Governor Bradford. Alden was the second Congregational minister of Wiscasset. Later he became Secretary of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. He wrote “History of Massachusetts” and “A Gentleman’s House.” Within a small easily-walkable radius, there are many other historic homes (including Nickels-Sortwell House, Castle Tucker, Wood-Foote House and the Octagon House). One of Maine’s finest Bed and Breakfast Inn, The Snow Squall, is a tree-buffeted, corner abutter on the south side of the property. The downtown village stores, the Sheepscot River Waterfront and train station are all a five-minute walk from this home.
Amenities: A Wiscasset train station stop connects Brunswick to Rockland for the summer and fall months. The Amtrak Downeaster now comes to Brunswick so Wiscasset residents can conveniently take a train trip to Boston (for a day of shopping or a sports event)… and connecting travel beyond Boston is unlimited.
The Wiscasset Yacht Club is right on the Sheepscot River Harbor and offers great snobless social camaraderie and convenient access to ocean waters for fishermen and mariners. We have an excellent airport with a long runway and rental hangers.
The Wiscasset Community Center is a first-class facility with an Olympic-sized pool, workout room, Senior Center, and lots of desirable program activities for people of all ages. Bath and Brunswick are only a short distance away. Bowdoin College is a gem for cultural and adult educational activities. Portland is only an hour’s drive and is truly our “San Francisco of the East!”
A seriously-interested prospective buyer should plan on having a home inspection, confirm that the zoning allows any desired special usages, do their due diligence research and obtain their legal advice from an attorney. It’s important that the buyer carefully read the property disclosures. The sellers are required to comment on the condition of the property to the extent of their direct knowledge.
