About 45 West Franklin Road

Art and History: Two professional art conservators and restoration specialists have spent 40 years refining this wonderful 1840's post and beam historic farmhouse in the Hancock area. Leaving the period design and architectural features intact but updating its functionality, they now are offering this exquisite gem to its next curators. Once owned by a Dr. Lewis who had his office in the home, then owned by the Darling family, the property has had only a couple owners, all who lovingly cared for it. The very special grounds are like wandering a grand estate but in a small footprint...Lots of high, beautifully designed & completely maintained native stone walls accented with moss surrounding the house and running at angles throughout the landscaping create magnificent art in themselves. Beyond the landscaped area lie the woods which create the frame for the canvas of this homesite. A large artists' studio with loft sits at the end of the lawn for wonderfully private space for creativity. The home itself welcomes you with its beauty and charm. Everything is in perfect proportion. Original polished wood floors. The wallpaper has been closely matched to the original with deep original moldings & finishes to accent. A period curved wall at the head of the stairs & delightful claw-foot tub in the upstairs bath continue the theme of graciousness. Septic designed for 2BR. The 3rd bedroom upstairs is 20'x14' & makes a wonderful sitting room (or game/crafts room). New windows throughout. Eight-foot ceilings. The delightful wood & gas cookstove centerpieces the kitchen and complements the Monson, Maine, slate sink. A soapstone stove graces the dining room, & an electric fireplace flickers in the living room. The home is well insulated, has on demand hot water, receives good passive solar heat from its siting, & is on town water. A bonus is the extra acreage fronting on a side road to divide out for building lots! This is a wonderful place to call Ho
