At the Nancy Place Homestead in North Orland, Maine we slowly, over 16 years, carved a forested retreat, 1/4 mile off the rural road with a terraced hillside for gardens and permaculture plantings. The property has grapes, kiwi, jerusalum artichoke, elderberry, and many young fruit trees and bushes. Although life has changed drastically and rapidly for us, causing a need to move from what was thought to be our forever property, we have infused the land with love and hard work, and it's ready for new owners to carry forward their vision here. It's ideal for back-to-landers, permaculture enthusiasts, environmentalists, and bug-out property seekers. It'd also be great for a communal living situation. 

The Nancy Place paid its own way over the years. We've hosted guests in our two rental (on site) properties via Airbnb and have watched as the howl of a coyote or the hug of an animal melt the barriers & resistance to personal change. We've stood by as guests were moved to tears and vowed to change their lives as they disconnected from their "normal" busy routines. We've also assisted many with pain relief through Maine's medical marijuana program as outdoor organic growers. With the addition of two high tunnels on an adjoining leased property we also sold veggies, blueberries, crafts and baked goods both at a farmers market and directly from the property. 

The main house is livable but has many unfinished pieces, making it an ideal opportunity to have the hard work done but still get to add finishing details to make the home your own. Chimney facing, stairs, flooring, and the downstairs bathroom all need to be personalized and have their finishing touches added. 

The house is heated primarily with wood, but has radiant flooring within a raised cement slab. The radiant floor is hooked to propane but could be hooked to wood heat with the right set up. 

Let us know if you'd like more information, and since we are selling without a realtor we'd really appreciate you linking us to any groups where folks might be seeking this kind of property.
