About 8 Bean Road

Introducing the E.C. and M.I. Record Homestead in Buckfield. This home was built in 1844 for members of the Record Family who were among the first settlers in Buckfield. Since 1977 David & Pat Ledlie have painstakingly and lovingly preserved this Greek/Federal Revival style home now listed in the National Register of Historic Places. Set on 22+ bucolic acres, this idyllic farmhouse offers a sun soaked kitchen & sunroom, cozy living room w/ wood stove, first floor bedroom & full bath all allowing for single level living. Two bedrooms, a full bathroom and two more large rooms on the 2nd floor can be used as additional bedrooms or living space. The barn has been impeccably preserved and re-supported and offers a heated space currently being used as a woodshop. Enjoy stunning views of Streaked Mountain and appreciate the variety of mature trees and plantings gathered from around the world and planted from seed by the Ledlies. The Record Homestead is a fine example of a late transitional Federal to Greek Revival style home. The elaborate Greek Revival corner pilasters on the exterior and Federal and Greek Revival style interior trim of the Cape Building, crafted by a local carpenter, are among the most prominent architectural features. Other, simpler, features include the extremely well maintained wood clapboard and shingle siding, window trim, front doorway, and granite foundation. **The Preservation Easement' protects the exterior of all the buildings. It protects the interior of only the Cape building, allowing for renovations and upgrades in the rest of the House and the Barn. A 'Conservation Easement' on the Field prevents it from being developed.
