The Parsonage

So much history, love, and memories are seeped into the walls of this quintessential Maine home.  Once the local parsonage, the outside speaks of the modest 1900s classic New Englander, solidly built with a touch of elegance and a lot of charm.  Inside is the cozy coastal cottage you’ve been looking for.

Sunlight floods the rooms and the gentle ocean breezes provide cooling comfort all summer long.  This easy to maintain lot is tucked into a half acre, with all of the comforts you’d expect from a decade of loving care from it’s current owners.  Gather around the firepit in the evenings, get the sauna going for a little relaxation, or fill it with backyard chickens if that’s your desire.  The raised garden beds contain rich organic soil built up over the past 10 years.  And the landscaping has been crafted with both privacy in mind and the feeling of expanse and openness.

Gorgeous herringbone wood and pumpkin pine floors grace the interior. As well as lots of little features reminiscent of 1900s craftsmanship.  The house is just filled with character with a curved wall, fantastic windows, wonderfully restored woodwork throughout, and a big eat-in sun filled kitchen!

The location is just perfect with the beach only a mile walk through Indian Trail, with the conveniences of New Harbor Hill just around the corner. The ice pond is in view, and the Harbor isn’t too far beyond. This year-round home would also make a nice summer getaway.  There’s even a possibility for a first floor bedroom!  There are too many updates to list here, but this house has been transformed into a truly special home. See the listing here.


Wonderful eat-in kitchen with new high-durability, eco-friendly Marmoleum floor.

Tons of storage, and Sun filled room, with direct entry to mudroom or patio.


The spacious living room features a gas ‘woodstove’ and pumpkin pine floors.

The Dining room could also be a downstairs bedroom and features a unique herringbone hardwood floor.


The huge master bedroom features a walk-in closet, pumkpkin pine floors and a gorgeous 3 bay window!


The hallway gradually opens up into a spacious area leading to the guest room, which has a view of the ice pond and an oversized window, bringing the outside in.

The other end of the hallway leads to the 3rd bedroom, which could also be a nice artist space or office.

Area Map

About a 1/2 mile walk takes you to Shaws Fish & Lobster Wharf for seaside dining or just to watch the activity on the Harbor.  The Salt Pond is just a little further down the road.  And we have all the shops on New Harbor Hill just  1/4 mile in the other direction.  Pemquid Beach is just a mile away.  ONE MILE!!!    Location! Location! Location!


From morning coffee on the patio to evening fires in the back yard, the outdoor space has been thoughtfully maximized for all day enjoyment.


The spacious mudroom is ideal for … everything!  Lots of room for your shoes, coats, skiis, paddleboard, backpacks, laundry, plants, cleaning supplies, you name it!
