This historic Federal home and farm in Vassalboro sits on 27 +- stunning acres with everything from a small pond to fields and meadows. No pesticides have ever been sprayed on the rural property, preserving the land for organic farming. Built in the late 1770s, the home was once the Benjamin Brown Tavern, catering to stage coach travelers along the Kennebec River. It has several wonderful historic details along with lovely modern updates. Some of the extras include: hardwoods, wainscoting, and exposed beams; a metal roof; vinyl siding; blown-in insulation along with new insulated windows in both the house and the two car, three-story detached barn. The home has an open floor plan and natural light streams into nearly every room, especially the four-season sun room located on the back of the house. This gorgeous and generous room was the home¿s original kitchen and features exposed beams, a pine ceiling and a wall of windows. A large wood stove provides warmth during the cooler months. The sunroom, which has a closet and ample space for boots and coats, leads into the kitchen. Several attractive features adorn this bright room including oak cabinets, pine bead board, a bow window, pantry, and a woodstove that sits gracefully on a brick hearth and can heat the entire house. A set of French doors separates the kitchen and the dining room, which has hardwood floors that continue through the front entry hall and an elegant living room. Exposed beams accent the far side of the living room, which flows toward a corner bedroom with a pine ceiling. A full bath is located between the bedroom and kitchen. Gracious oak stairs lead to the second floor, where there are three carpeted bedrooms, including a spacious master with two closets. The upstairs also has a carpeted family room featuring pine paneling and the home¿s original wainscoting. A second floor bathroom includes a convenient laundry area. A two-room attic also provides for more storage. Outside this beautiful Federal-style home, the three-story barn is a few steps from the sun porch door. It offers storage for large equipment, farm animals or has potential for an apartment. Along with the opportunity for organic farming, the property also has lovely flower gardens and eight maple trees that can be tapped for maple sugar. Located halfway between Waterville and Augusta, this gorgeous home with its tranquil and expansive land, is a short drive to several restaurants, shops and a top-notch school system.
