    I am not moving to New .England butů

    If I were moving to New England in the Portland
    , Maine area I sure would consider this adorable house. Itĺs not huge. It sits on a river. Oh boy is it ever cute.

    It’s a super cute house! Love the river. Not a fan of the wallpaper they used.

    It's very overpriced for what it is, and I don't think you would like where it is, either--it's pretty rural, and can get really desolate really fast out that way.

    That's funny, I was Zillow-perving on Maine real estate recently, and it just the other day offered me up that one!

    I think, IL, you'd be happier on the coast because the towns are so neat. Bae, you too, for obvious reasons. IL, look around Damariscotta, Wiscasset, Camden, and Belfast.

    Ok, that is good to know. I don’t want to live in the country, so I did like the fact neighbors were right next-door and across the street.But yes ICan see where it’s desolate.

    I was born in Maine, and had been vaguely investigating the idea of moving to some small coastal or island town there. Likely just a castle-in-Spain thing :-). But there are some lovely spots around the state, wow!

    Not for me, but I did enjoy browsing the photos and day dreaming of a place without drought and smoke from fires. I picture a place built in 1825 having some special upkeep and heating issues.

    My brother lives on an island right next to Portland, and like you, must deal with the ferry, which can get really dicey during tourist season. I am intrigued by Islesboro (but realistically can't do ferry) and north of Belfast area, Blue Hill.

    There are so many gorgeous choices.

    IL, now it makes sense that she gave Hollis this library:

    https://salmonfallslibrary.com/

    That makes the price of the house make more sense.
