What $387,000 Buys You in Maine: Avonfield Farm
Bounded by a stream on two sides and a dry-stone wall on another, this 90-acre parcel in the town of Avon—20 miles northwest of Farmington and less than an hour’s drive from ski destination Sugarloaf—consists of mixed woodlands and pastures suitable for livestock or crops.
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 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.
Although the red barn stands in excellent condition, the larger one will likely need attention in the coming years to maintain its structural integrity.
