For sale by owner, this three bedroom, colonial-style home sits on 190 private acres of woods, fields, and streams in Avon, Maine. Starting out in 1838 as a small cape, the house underwent a significant expansion in the 1870's to assume its current form. Purchased by the current owners in 2007, the house has undergone a complete remodeling. The original house, now an ell, was rebuilt from the foundation up. The main house was gutted, fully insulated, and equipped with new wiring and plumbing. One of the two barns has been restored to like-new condition, the other barn awaits your tender loving care. Annual taxes were $3,624 in 2012.
The farm is located in the heart of ski country. Rangeley, located about 25 miles to the northwest, is the home of Saddleback Mountain; Sugarloaf and Sunday River are about 20 and 40 miles away, respectively.

Less than 20 miles to the southeast lies Farmington, a small college town of about 8,000 people with all the stores you need to meet day-to-day shopping needs.
