LOCATION, LOCATION, LOCATION! Want to live on the water’s edge in a coastal town of Maine that is known for blueberries and rebellion? If so, come check out 466 Port Road in Machiasport!
Sitting smack-dab in the middle of Maine’s blueberry belt and flanking the shoreline that the first naval battle of the American Revolution took place along, there is no denying that the value of this listing is in the land that it sits on! Nestled alongside the banks of the Machias River, on 9.2 acres, this property encompasses the “blue space” many people dream of.
Not only does this property serve up unrivaled views of the Machias River as it wends towards the Atlantic Ocean, but it also gives you direct access to it! Take a short walk down this home’s gently sloping backyard dotted with beautiful old apple trees, and you’ll find yourself on your own 810’ of water frontage that flaunts a private, sandy beach and good deep-water access. While much of the shoreline here is unbroken to begin with, you can relax knowing that your waterfront neighbor to the south is Machias State Park/Fort O’Brien State Historic Site which guarantees that it will remain undeveloped for years to come!
Set at the top of the property, on its western boundary alongside Port Road, is a classic coastal-colonial home that has been firmly anchored there since the 1800’s. The home has a restrained yet stately outward appearance common of colonial-style homes at that time. It has almost everything else that you would expect of a home built in that era, too: it stands two stories tall, has a steeply pitched roof, white clapboard siding, a commanding plank-style front door, hardwood floors, wood burning stoves, and spacious living/sleeping rooms. There is also a timber frame barn attached to the backside of the home that preserves a record of Maine pragmatism and unpretentious authenticity. There is electricity, a drilled well, and private septic, but no hot water. While the years may have left their mark on this house, and you will need to decide whether you want to renovate or demolish, there is no doubt that in its heyday it was a beauty!
Fix it up or tear it down? That is up to you. One thing is for sure, though: if you do not want to shell out a lot of green to get your blue, you are going to want to check out 466 Port Road!
