WHY DO WE SHOW EXPIRED LISTINGS?

Hi there, I am Erica and my Life Partner is Louis. We are an active mature couple who owns a beautiful historic rural home in Downeast Maine and are looking for a compatible couple of younger persons to assist us with maintaining our 2,000 sq. ft. home and 2 acre property year round. This is would be a permanent position for the right couple We have no children except for our loving 3 year old Aussie Ty.

This home and property has been a Labour of Love with a 3 1/2 year restoration and renovation. The home was built in 1801 by John Tabbutt a Quaker who came here from England to create a Quaker settlement in the Pleasant River Valley which was before Maine became a state and was still a part of Massachusetts. Until 1993 this property was attached to several hundred acres of a Maine Wild Blueberry Farm. In 1993 2 acres was subdivided off with the Original home which was inherited by a Granddaughter of the same remaining heirs of this property. Starting in 1993 major renovations were made to this post and beam constructed home. We purchased this property in January 2016 and have since worked very hard to restore her to her original charm. Most work has been completed but there remains her final completion with some small details here and there.

The property is located 17 miles from the beautiful coast of Maine and only an hours drive to Acadia National Park, Ellsworth, and Bar Harbor. This is a perfect location for true nature lovers.

We are looking for a couple to become like members of our family and to enjoy this lovely property as your own. We are open minded and are considered liberals who welcome new ideas. Louis is a retired educator and I am a retired Architectural Interior Designer who loves to cook, bake, garden, harvest and preserve our bounty. Everything we do is Organic centered. I was raised on a farm with much Amish instruction and values and still maintain many of those teachings in my own life today with some exceptions especially when it comes to welcoming and accepting diversity.

So needless to say we are open to all situations regarding the couple we select to share our home with. Our perfect candidates would assist us with the day to day care inside and out outside. Must love animals and organic living. We will provide Rooms and Board on the second floor of our home, a small stipend. There would not be a rigid schedule as long as the home is clean, and the property is well maintained. We do grow a garden every year, keep hens for fresh eggs, raise fruit trees, and have a few sheep in pasture. Small scale farm living at its best. There would be plenty of time for you to do your own things and to even work other jobs in the area. We do have a few physical limitations but continue to do what we can everyday. We do own a. Class C motorhome and get away as often as possible especially in the winter. If this sounds like it would fit into your dream and goals please contact us to discuss the possibility's. Peace, Love, and Light!
