Durham, Maine - so far away - so close to everything
If you are looking for a place to root in nature without pretense while staying connected to the cosmopolitan flair building in Portland Maine, Durham is an option to consider. Many properties in Durham are privately placed and the roads in from the interstate are not thoroughfares to anywhere, they're just convenient to Portland, Freeport and Boston by way of train or reasonable commute. So it's peaceful in Durham. A great place to disappear on the weekend and pop up anytime.
768 Hallowell Rd - a rough jewel
Typical to Durham, this property is remote - on a road of it's own. 7-acres includes a small pond, field and woodlands. A single residence and a separate duplex are ideal for any configuration of owner occupied, rental, or in-law options. There are challenges to subdivision, this property is for the buyer who wants the homestead intact.
Interiors are still in a timeless state. 1940's construction, appliances and fixtures at camp level by today standards make both buildings classics standing ready for creative updates or total make over.
Duplex units are connected by a vestibule and door. Both units have their own heat, kitchens and utilities, but the building as a whole could easily convert back to a single family.
All primary systems are in fine condition and the barn in nearly brand new. A fabulous workshop is convenient to the single family property.
Brett's Team Says:
"This property is priced for a homeowner/investor who has creative interest in transforming a raw classic into something special. The right eye, the right budget and the real understanding of Durham as a quiet, off-mainstream place to come home is going to fall in love with this spot. If you are willing to start basic and make it your own, you're a winner here."
