Quaint Edwardian cottage with 22 acres of land in Wellington, Maine for sale for the same price as a brand new Land Rover Discovery

Named for Arthur Wellesley, 1st Duke of Wellington, the town of Wellington in Piscataquis County, Maine is pretty small. With a population of just 260 in 2010 across 39.93 square miles, this is a place where “there are really are more cows than people.”

 

Known for an over-the-top annual Christmas light display that “brings tears of joy to the eyes” (supposedly) courtesy of a woodsman named Blaine Henderson, someone with just £48,300 ($59,900, €54,900 or درهم220,000) spare could now join this typically apple pie American, Hicksville community and become what locals call a “Mainiac.”

 

Counting the actress Liv Tyler and the author Stephen King amongst those born there, the state of Maine is best known for agriculture, fishing and shipbuilding and has a humid continental climate. It is the northern-most state in the north-east of America and for those “yearning for a home with acreage,” an Edwardian cottage at 14 Smith Hill Road could make for an ideal holiday home.

 

Standing on a plot of 21.58 acres, the 640 square foot cedar shingle clad house has been “updated” (to a degree) and has one bedroom and one bathroom currently. There is “lots of potential for expansion” and of the smallholding, realtors Berkshire Hathaway announce: “Come enjoy!”

  1. What a charming wee cottage. A bit isolated for a little old lady like me sadly but I can imagine a family really enjoying fixing this up.
