About 642 Main Street

This cheerful New England cape farmhouse is perched on a bluff high above the East Machias River with 168' of deeded waterfront. From the private back deck, you can gaze across the steep embankment at an eagle on her nest, frolicking harbor seals, and ospreys hunting for the perfect catch. The house features a handsome soapstone stove with a lined chimney in the living room, an updated heating system, a spacious kitchen, first-floor bath for first-floor living, and numerous additional updates to the property. There is an attached barn for storage, wood, and gardening with a marble-topped pastry table. The property features many perennials including rhubarb, comfrey, lilies, lupine, tulips, rosa rugosa, peonies, catnip, irises, and phlox, and a gourmet's dream kitchen garden of herbs - oregano, sweet cecily, chives and more. A handsome sugar maple brims with sap when tapped for maple syrup in the spring. Located on Route 1, the location offers easy access to the main travel corridor for winter commuting. The house has hosted several home-based businesses over the years including a tearoom and bakery, a music studio and classroom, and a therapy office. The famous Sunrise Trail has a right-of-way across the property by the water's edge (not to worry, you'll have plenty of privacy up on the bluff). This wonderful trail runs all the way from Calais to Ellsworth and provides a picturesque 3-mile walk into Machias along the river's edge. The property is located 5 minutes from Machias, 20 minutes from the easternmost town of Lubec, and 60 minutes from Ellsworth.
