    Wow! What a lovely looking home. A real Victorian style tiny house.

  • Avatar Phyllis July 13, 2018, 4:59 pm

    So, the town owns the brook and waterfall. I wonder what that means for someone who buys the property.

  • Avatar Barbara A Cole July 13, 2018, 10:11 pm

    This is ADORABLE!!! I wish it had a share tab so I could share it on Facebook! I”d love to live here! Perfect in every way!

  • Avatar Cindy July 13, 2018, 11:17 pm

    if the town owns the stream and waterfall does that mean people can be traipsing onto your property anytime they want? It is ADORABLE and I would consider selling my place if it was close enough for me to find work but the privacy angle has me concerned.

      Only if they come by the river but they still can’t step onto the land of the private property without permission…

      Other properties can have a similar situation with a public road running through a private property… It mainly just means more complex property lines…

      • Avatar rick July 31, 2018, 11:12 am

        not true. Maine has very loose laws re: access to private land. if the property isn’t posted (a posted sign every 100′ (I believe that’s the distance) then you can cross the property on foot.

        • Avatar James D. July 31, 2018, 1:01 pm

          Yes and no, Maine does have an open land tradition that’s unique to that state and that does generally means there are loose right of way easements but it doesn’t necessarily apply equally to all properties… Some land owners have posted their properties to no longer allow free public access and that has been increasing in frequency the last 15 years.

          So the deed and history to the property would be required to be certain what applies here in that case and there’s legal recourse to have it changed if it does apply…

          Though, most properties in Maine do allow public access for recreational usages and as it’s a very long tradition it’s not uncommon for natives of Maine to feel such postings are unfair and tear down the no trespassing signs and cross anyway but that’s a different matter, which can get very political and deal heavily with tourism and hunting markets in Maine…

          But that’s all unique to Maine and other states generally don’t allow people to just get onto a private property from a river… It would be more a issue of right of way to access the river and would usually have to show that there isn’t another way to get to it other than to pass through a private property…

          While public access doesn’t mean someone can just walk up to your house and try to look inside or attempt to break in…

    How many bedrooms, what about the turret type room? Not many photos so no real idea of inside, just lots of the water.

  • Avatar Pam Maes July 14, 2018, 2:02 pm

    If you click on “currently listed for $139,500” it will take you to more pictures! Gorgeous!

  • Avatar Eric July 28, 2018, 4:15 pm

    It just looks so wrong… too narrow for the height of the building. Looks like it might fall over… yeah I know it won’t but that’s the impression just looking at it.

  • Avatar Danielle July 30, 2018, 2:00 pm

    If you go to the website it shows the other house on the property as $65k

  • Avatar Dominick Bundy August 3, 2018, 12:16 pm

    As awesome as this little place is, it still is only 424 sq.ft. And no way has almost $140,000 dollars worth of materials it took to have it built. Way way over priced..

    • Avatar rick August 3, 2018, 12:27 pm

      it also includes 4 acres of land and another guest house/studio. this isn’t a THOW

  • Avatar Dee Fitzgerald October 7, 2018, 7:16 pm

    If on or near the water, it probably needs flood insurance protection ?

    I know that if you buy near the river, ocean, lake, pond, or a stream, this is one question the insurance company wants to know. Perhaps the difference might be if the wheels remain off onto a foundation. If the wheels remain on, it may be different if considered mobile to move around ? And seasonal vs. year round use.

    Just wondering, each state may be different. Plus, some states do not even allow a Tiny House, nor acknowledge them. Maybe an insurance company does not either ? Anybody have an answer ?
