Location: Cumberland, Maine
This 1740-built Solomen Wood House traveled quite a way’s—about 100 miles, from Boxford, Massachusetts to Cumberland, Maine—before settling on its current plot of land. Once it arrived, it was expanded to a Colonial "saltbox," whose pitched roof slopes down the back, and now measures approximately 4,000 square feet.
Sitting on 25 acres of farmland, the historic three-bedroom farmhouse boasts charming old-world details like rustic exposed beams, wide-plank floorboards, multiple brick fireplaces, wood paneling, and gorgeous woodwork throughout. The expansive kitchen alone—updated with massive chef’s stove, natch—will have you playacting at homesteading, while the large dining hearth will have you yearning for simpler times.
Located at 10 Sophie’s Way, the property also comes with several outbuildings including a 1700s carriage house, hemlock timber-framed barn, and storehouse. With all that space and land, there’s no better place to get a taste of (modernized) Colonial. Take a look below. It’s asking $950,000.
