Save This House! Wonderful Federal Style Cape in Maine

Save this House! Wonderful Federal style Cape with unusual louvered window fans, c. 1830, Dresden, Maine.

This gem has recently come onto the market after decades of vacancy. I’ve been driving by it for years, hoping someone who appreciates its historic significance and character would come along to save it. The low price ($99k) in a desirable location makes it highly vulnerable to insensitive remodeling or demolition for new construction.

The listing says, “Original features are still intact. Beautiful stairway, Stunning fan over the door and original shutters, granite foundation. Seasonal views of the Kennebec River.”

It is a short distance from the 1755 Pownalborough Courthouse and is convenient to Augusta, Bath, Richmond, and Wiscasset. It sits on a 2-acre lot, and more acreage may be available. Unfortunately, the listing does not have interior photos.
