What $387,000 Buys You in Maine: Avonfield Farm

This 90-acre parcel in the town of Avon consists of mixed woodlands and pastures suitable for livestock or crops.

The addition to the rear of the main residence houses a kitchen, last updated in 2008.

The recently updated 3,000-square-foot three-bedroom farmhouse, built in the early 1830s, retains its original wide-plank pine floors and exposed beams. A pair of spacious barns date to the mid-19th century.

The Provenance

The Stinchfield family established the homestead as a dairy outfit several generations ago, before selling the place in 2007 to a couple who sensitively renovated the main residence. The current owners purchased the farm in 2016 and ran water to both barns, as well as electricity to the smaller, red one.

Of Avonfield Farm’s two barns, the small red one in the background is in much better condition.

Caveat Emptor

Although the red barn stands in excellent condition, the larger one will likely need attention in the coming years to maintain its structural integrity.
