Welcome to the North Chester Orchard, a working apple orchard, Christmas Tree farm, and acres of pumpkin patch, owned and operated by the same owners since its inception in 1989. This setting on 70+- groomed acres, with a meticulously maintained historic New England Farmhouse, is something you would see in a Hallmark movie. The agricultural land and woodlands of this property are the perfect example of good stewardship and its obvious the labor of love that has gone into the property over the last 33 years. Once you see this property, you will understand why people travel from all over this part of Maine to pick their own apples, pick a pumpkin and return weeks later for a beautiful Christmas Tree. The farmhouse comes with its own history book written by Mable Whitney Jordan who grew up at the farm in the 1930's with such fond memories of her experiences, she wrote a book about it. The home has three bedrooms, one- and one-half baths and about 1650 square feet of finished living space. When you enter the home, you come into the kitchen area that is a bright open space with original tin ceilings, a pantry, heat pump and views of the south orchard. The hardwood maple floors provide a warmth to this part of the home and nice contrast to the color of the kitchen cabinetry. Off the kitchen, at the north end of the house is a family room with small wood stove and half bath. The wood stove is perfect for warming up to after working in the orchard or after the family has enjoyed a day of sliding down one of the hills in the orchard. Off the other side of the kitchen is a formal dining room with hardwood flooring. From here you have access to the home office and living room with seasonal views of the Penobscot River. Continuing upstairs you will find a nice sized storage closet in the hallway. Two bedrooms are on this south end of the house and they both have closets. The front bedroom here has views of the Penobscot River.
