Imagine owning a country farm? You'd need open fields for grazing and raising crops, a barn with stalls, and a chicken coop. You'd want a house with lots of room for everyone, even an in-law suite. You'd hear the sounds of birds, breathe clean, fresh air, and see amazing starry nights - just far enough off the beaten road for some peace and quiet and space to dream. Sounds perfect? Wait, there must be a catch; you'd have to give up high speed internet, modern amenities, access to town services, schools and markets, cultural events, and a sense of community, right? Wrong! In Whitefield, kids ride the bus to school, the trash is picked up, there are plays and concerts, ball games and barn raisings, and lots of history in this former mill town settled in 1770. The population of 2,500 is made up of farmers, loggers and woodworkers, artists and crafters, cooks and bakers, and professionals working remotely or writing their book. You'd be just 47 miles from Portland, 10 miles to I-95, 15 miles to the state capital in Augusta and 30 miles to the Atlantic Ocean at Camden. All this for a very affordable price compared to some other towns that have already been ''discovered''. The sellers made a lot of improvements in their short tenure, but a career opportunity awaits, giving you this lucky break. The barn has water and electricity, and the chicken coop has power. The house has been freshly painted, has central vac and a generator. There are lots of fenced in paddocks ready for your animals. There is even a small brook bordering the back of the 16.5 acre property.There are nearby hiking trails and nature preserves galore, and Damariscotta Lake State Park, too.Come and check it out in two open houses, on Friday and Saturday of Memorial Day weekend.
