This classic Maine homestead (''Big House, Little House, Back House, Barn'') features a large colonial home with ell and attached garage, an antique barn with spacious carriage house, a separate 2-car garage, and 24 acres of fields, bordered on the south and west by 60 acres of magnificent woods, permanently conserved by the Maine Woodland Owners--available for walking, birding and recreation. This property has been owned since 1865 by four generations of the same family and showcases the rich history of Auburn as a shoe-making center; the first pair of shoes made in Auburn was cut in the front parlor around 1835, starting an industry that flourished in the West Auburn community until 1880.The large colonial home (2900sf) has character and charm with wide pumpkin pine floors, fireplaces, iron latches, 4 bedrooms and 2 baths, renovated kitchen with new wood stove, dining room with built-in china closets, and library lined with bookcases. Recent upgrades such as new windows, vinyl siding, newer furnace and water heater, metal barn roof and 25-year roof shingles on the main house have maintained the structural integrity of the property and created a sturdy palette for the next owner.The antique barn (40' x 50' floor base) was built with hand-hewn beams and wooden fastenings and was reportedly the largest barn in Androscoggin County at the time. The cow lane, bordered by two stone walls, leads to the back fields. The soil quality of the fields is suitable for crops, orchards and hay.The location of this property is ideal--minutes from downhill skiing at Lost Valley, cross-country skiing and snowshoeing at Auburn Nordic Trails, boating on Lake Auburn, walking and skiing on the Spring Road, shopping and hospitals in downtown Lewiston-Auburn, and the Auburn turnpike entrance and airport.
