Rumford, ME Offered for sale at $469,000
With a history as rich as the soil and a residence that was built and maintained with love and passion, this home makes a turn-key option for buyers. Operate this property as an expansive single-family home or as it sits; as a highly regarded Bed & Breakfast in Western Maine. Originally settled in 1798, the land of the Martin Valley was sold to Jeremiah Martin who established one of the most reputable farms in the area by building and opening the home in 1884. This location is a recreational paradise; within 20 minutes of Sunday River Ski Resort, 5 minutes of world-class hiking trails, and a short ride to restaurants and shops, this is an ideal country setting. The land includes 42 scenic acres of rolling fields and healthy forests, complete with a small spring-fed pond and fenced pastures. The building is currently operated as The Perennial Inn which features 8 bedrooms, 5 bathrooms and common rooms including a gathering room, a den, and a billiards room. A screened-in porch makes outdoor living enjoyable for 3 seasons and two fireplaces (a wood-burning stove in the den and a gas stove in the gathering room), offer a welcoming and cozy ambiance to these comfortable spaces. The design features high ceilings and large rooms which were uncommon attributes in the 1800’s but are still appreciated and functional today. Additional space includes designated owners’ quarters, storage room, and the barn. When you are ready to come for a visit, allow for enough time to meet the horses and chickens so you can appreciate the lifestyle that this homestead allows.
