Last fall I set forth to find and purchase the perfect piece of land. I can remember driving my wheelchair all over town with my mom/dad in tow next to me on their bicycles.
What we wanted seemed like an impossibility. In town, but still quiet and secluded, beautiful view, southern exposure. The spot needed to provide some way to make these cold Northern Maine winters seem a little less unbearable, and ideally with the right view/sunshine we could almost make the indoor space feel just like you’re right outside.
We found a couple possibilities, but none of them seemed just right. A few were a little too far from town, one was close to town but nestled in the shadow of a hill (with no view or sunshine), and the third well it was way more land and far more than we could afford. So we kept looking, and eventually I mentioned our pursuit to just the right person who had a family member with the perfect piece of land. Only thing… it wasn’t exactly for sale. Nothing adventured… nothing gained, so I explained my situation to this person, how much I wanted to move/live back here in Northern Maine, and how important it was that I had the perfect spot to help me make it through those very long winters. Well obviously this person took compassion on my situation or quite possibly I’m just that smooth of a talker, because…
OH HECK YES, THEY DID SELL ME THE PERFECT PIECE OF LAND!
So everyone can see how truly amazing the spot is, we took a few pictures and a video this morning.
Quite possibly, the greatest thing about this property other than the view is the school farm bordering us on 2 sides.
How about a video?
Panning around the view at the corner of our lot. Hear the birds chirping?
Ahhh! So happy to be building on this beautiful spot!
