There are few things dreamier than spending warm summer days in an old house by the sea.
House Crazy Sarah has found the perfect home on – yes – Summer street.
This 1890 traditional New England home is within ocean’s view in the quaint seaside town of Lubec, Maine.
Lubec is located near the Canadian border at the mouth of the Bay of Fundy.
The house was listed for sale this summer at $435,000, but was suddenly yanked from the MLS so House Crazy Sarah can’t tell if it sold or was just taken off the market.
In any case, House Crazy Sarah was able to grab some of the amazing listing photos for our viewing pleasure.
This home has 4 bedrooms and 2 bathrooms in 2,333 square feet. It stands out with its set of peach-colored front doors – the perfect compliment to the soft green color of the wood-sided exterior.
Have a look inside!
The living room:
The interior decor is subdued and low-key with some classic touches.
The living room features a gorgeous bay window.
The dining room:
Refinished wood floors and the original heat register with strategically placed antique finds give this neutral pass-through room visual interest.
The kitchen is not fancy but is charming in a vintage way with white cabinetry, seafoam green walls, and matching linoleum floors…. original to the home perhaps?
The large kitchen windows showcase the ocean views.
There is also a sweet full bathroom on the main floor with built-in shelving:
The family room:
A traditionally steep staircase leads up to the second floor…
At the top of the stairs, you will find a laundry area tucked into a corner nook.
Love those ocean-blue painted floors!
All four of the bedrooms are located upstairs, along with the second full bathroom.
The one downside to this home is that it has one of those unfortunate walk-through bedrooms to get to another bedroom.
Nonetheless, all the bedrooms are endearing in their own way.
Back outside, this delightful home is nestled on a lush corner lot with beautiful views of the Lubec Channel.
It is entirely possible that the owners saw how lovely their home was in the listing photos and simply decided not to sell.
Can we blame them? This home is a midsummer’s day dream!
