Unique Downeast Home with Acreage

$ 275,000


Forty acres of fields and woodland surround this 1728 sq. ft. fully insulated steel industrial building. Built in 2000, this commercial style building is currently used as an artist studio, workshop, and living quarters.  A galley kitchen and separate soaking bath separate the workshop and loft bedroom from the artist studio, dining/living room.  A large cedar deck overlooks the meadows, organic garden, and woodland.

The property was once a working sheep farm and the lands remain organic, never having had chemicals applied.  The surrounding land offers fields for grazing, timber for cutting to help heat your home or build a stable.  There are numerous apple trees, old fashion lilac trees, spruce, fir, and other common vegetation of the area. 

From the studio/workshop, take the meandering path through the field and into the woods to a three-season octagon cottage.  The cottage has a wrap around deck, kitchen, living area and loft bedroom.  Your closest neighbors are the deer, fox, rabbits, grouse, and other wildlife that make their homes in the woods.  The property is in tree growth and therefore enjoys reduced taxes.

The town of Perry sits at the 45th parallel – halfway between the North Pole and the Equator.  It has a small- town atmosphere where everyone knows each other yet respects their individual privacy.

A short drive from here – 12 miles – is the city of Eastport which is home to the deepest port on the East Coast.  There is a commercial pier welcoming international cargo ships, the Coast Guard Station and the fishing and tour boat pier.  The historical waterfront shops offer galleries, eateries, and interesting shops.  The population of Eastport according to the 2020 census was around 1288 making this the least populous city in Maine. 

Calais is the second city in Washington County.  It is a border town with St. Stephens, New Brunswick and is another short drive from Perry – just 18 miles away.  Calais offers numerous choices for shopping and eating out.  And while you are there – check out the State wide famous Mardens Discount store who’s moto is “I should have bought it when I saw it at Mardens” – They have a little of everything for the DIY or crafty person.

It is easier to list what Washington County does not have. It does not have: a lot of traffic lights (only three in the whole county), an interstate, a Red Lobster Restaurant, or poisonous snakes. Known as the Sunrise County, Washington County welcomes the first rays of sun to shine on the US each day. With tides averaging between 18 and 22 feet, the bold, salt-sprayed shoreline of Downeast Maine offers deserted beaches, quiet hiking trails, rugged cliffs, and unnamed beauty.  Truly one of the last frontiers on the Eastern seaboard, one does not have to go far to enjoy the natural beauty of the area. With 2 cities, 44 towns, and a population of approximately 32,000, Washington County is larger than the states of Delaware and Rhode Island combined.

Thousands of acres of land have been preserved for the public to access the waterfront, hiking trails, biking, and exploring.  The Sunrise Trails begin in Calais and go all the way to Ellsworth.  The trails are great for hiking, biking, ATV riding, and horseback riding in the spring, summer and fall and then snowmobile riding, and cross- country skiing in the winter.

 Something for everyone in beautiful Downeast Maine and coastal Washington County!
