On the Market: A Renovated Farmhouse on an Island in Maine
Located on Great Diamond Island, this renovated farmhouse-style home is a 25-minute ferry ride from Portland.
60 Nancy Lane, Portland, ME
Size: 2,910 square feet
The name of this home may be Farmhouse Landing, but a barn it is not. Located off the coast of Portland on Great Diamond Island, this cottage-style home has been restored since it was first built in 1900. With worn wood and exposed beams, you’ll get rustic farmhouse style with the luxury of island life.
Located not far from the island ferry dock, this home is a 25-minute boat ride away from Portland if you want to have a night out on the mainland. But for days when you just want some space, you’ll have 6.15 acres of property to enjoy, as well as two private beaches and a gazebo. A pier has the potential for a private gangway for more water activities.
Inside the home, you can spot Portland and neighboring House and Peaks Island in the distance while an abundance of windows offer full water views from every room. A country kitchen with a commercial stove, a slate counter and sink, and a center island all nod to the name of the home, while the open concept dining area offers great space for entertaining. A step-down family room opens up to a space with cathedral ceilings, views of the Portland skyline, and sliding doors that open to a wraparound deck. You can also enjoy the sights from the first-floor main bedroom suite, which has a wall of sliding doors.
The first floor of this home also offers an office, sitting room, and a second full bedroom, while the second floor boasts a second bedroom suite with a balcony along with two full bedrooms and a bathroom. And if all that weren’t enough, business owners should take note: The front half of the property is zoned for commercial use if you decide you’d like to set up shop some day.
