Colonial House in Maine Has Great Bones
Colonial house in Maine is on the market. It’s a Classic Colonial, Circa built in 1890 with architectural details and I have a little crush on it. A reader brought my attention to Bath, Maine where a house junkie like me can take a map-guided walking or driving tour of their historic mansions and homes. If only I lived near Maine.
This colonial may just be a traditional home buyers dream come true. Four bedrooms, stained glass window, extra-large fireplace and wide plank flooring.
The Colonial is still shedding its winter blanket. Looks like the evergreens need trimming, but there’s no denying the bones on this Colonial are good. It gets better on the inside so let’s take the virtual house tour.
Get a look at all the details on the ceiling. I’d love a bay window and built-in corner cabinet like this someday, how about you?
Really large fireplaces expanding the width of the room. Seems like only these old houses built back in the 1800’s can exude this kind of charm.
The living room gets the other front bay window seen on the front exterior of the house.
I love a nook under the stairs, but the side trim on the steps are the star of the house tour.
Cute girls room decorated in pink is one of the four bedrooms.
This Colonial house in Maine is in Bath surrounded by bodies of water with plenty of big ship sightings.

I am always intrigued by your comments Dana and may name my next Maine post after one of your lines here. As for Comment Luv, I will PM you on Facebook later when I think you are home from work.
So happy you stopped to visit Candy and left me a glowing review.
You put it so well that old homes have character.
I love the details in the ceilings. Beautiful details in the stairs too.
I want to go to Maine! I’m a combo of the old and the new. I enjoy the character of an older home but the modern conveniences and the stability of a recently built home, too. I think I should just move into an apt. next time so I don’t have to decide!
Was it easy to add CommentLuv to your blog? I like the ability of readers, such as yourself, to show their recent posts, too and thinking of replacing my Comments section with it. I’m so not techy, I’m hoping I don’t delete the whole thing.
Wow, that is a gorgeous home. I love all the character in older homes.
Of course you love old houses Elizabeth, I think it is your middle name.
Great find! This is gorgeous!!! I do love the old houses 🙂
I have a new friend that lives in Maine plus my daughter is smitten about Maine, so I will probably be doing more posts about homes there.
Oh my goodness!
They don’t build houses like they used to. The ceiling detail, the carving on the mantel, the stair detail – all gorgeous.
Let me know when you move in and I will come for a visit. We were only in Maine once, but I loved it.
