Looking for a diamond in the rough A house that looks good, but not so good that the price is inflated, and not so bad that it needs a complete overhaul If so, then 137 Heywood Road in Winslow, Maine may just be the property for you. While this property will require some work to whip it into shape, in the long-run this home could be proof that you can have a beautiful home at an affordable price.
Located near the confluence of the Kennebec and Sebasticook Rivers in Winslow, Maine, this bargain home, built in 1961, is a solid investment both from a structural and geographic standpoint. With 960 square feet of indoor space and 1.72 acres of outdoor space, you can fully embrace indoor/outdoor living in a rural and peaceful location. This home's single-level floor plan will make it easy for you to access all three of its bedrooms, its full bath, good-sized deck, and detached garage. There is a private septic system that was installed in 2013, a drilled well, and electricity that has been brought to the house, so there is not any utility site work left to be done.
Due to its proximity to the Atlantic coast, larger metropolitan areas like Waterville and Augusta, and some of the region's most scenic and undisturbed tracts of inland forests, lakes and rivers, Winslow is the perfect place to live. In fact, Winslow was named one of the happiest towns in Maine, by career advice blog Zippia, in 2018.
While this home could use some Tlc, it is a great opportunity to save money upfront and infuse your own personal tastes and preferences into its improvements. A little investment - and some elbow grease - will drastically improve this home's look, feel, and value. Call/text Spencer Wood for more information.
