House Crazy Sarah has a thing for historic general stores.
In small-town Maine, you will find this historic gem up for sale.
It’s a little rough and needs someone with a padded bank account who can give the appropriate TLC (and structural reinforcement)… but the potential is exciting.
The historic storefront building is located in the quaint town of Cherryfield, Maine. The listing claims it is the most photographed building in town, and you can see why with its Norman Rockwell-esque charm.
It was originally built in 1810 and seems to have been frozen in time.
That stove! Those light fixtures! The wide-planked floors!
Some of the restoration work has already been started.
It’s a fixer for sure, but with a list price of $149,900, it is within reach of many DIYers.
As it stands now, the building has 2 bedrooms and 1 bathroom in a total of 3,168 square feet.
But more bedrooms/living space could be added on the upper level.
View out of the third-floor window:
This place is old and fabulous so naturally, House Crazy Sarah is drawn to it.
It has that sweet, vintage Americana vibe.
Think of the potential uses for this place!
But how fun would it be to open it up as an old-fashioned general store again?
***UPDATE: Before this post could be published, this old place sold for a bargain $104,000!
Can’t wait to see what the new owners do with it!
