You've got to see this coastal Maine farmhouse

On the New England coast, in the town of York, lies this beautifully updated farmhouse built in 1875. This country home is conveniently located just one minute away from the York River, and only a handful of minutes away from all of the beaches this coastal town has to offer. 
Created in the Italianate Colonial style, this farmhouse features several recent renovations that have focused on sustainability and energy efficiency. And with a backyard like this, who WOULDN'T want to go green? This farmhouse is surrounded a lush private backyard with gorgeous perennial gardens and it has two decks that can be used to enjoy the great view. 
With a sweet picket fence and a large, shade-giving tree in the front yard, this country home has charm to spare. 
Traditional rustic shutters and comfy rocking chairs contribute to the effect of this classic, timeless front porch. Fun lighting fixtures, such as this star-shaped lantern, make this space a fun spot for entertaining company. 
The eat-in kitchen in this farmhouse features a few of the wonderful touches that can be seen throughout the home. Hardwood flooring and detailed moldings give this space a finished yet simple look. 
Warm exposed hardwood beams can be seen throughout the home, and are highlighted beautifully by the simple styling of this kitchen. Featuring updated utilities and appliances, this is a kitchen fit for even the most accomplished chef. 
This simply furnished dining room features high ceilings and traditional horsehair plaster. A wrought-iron chandelier light fixture adds warmth to this site of many family meals to come. 
The sitting room in this 125-year-old farmhouse is full of light and great for entertaining. Antique, rustic furniture and decor helps to reflect the rich historical character of this home.
Cool slate blues and bright white juxtapose nicely in this bedroom, one of four, in order to create a relaxing, seaside-inspired atmosphere. 
The crisp and clean white interior is reminiscent of cottage and country styles, while a rustic sink provides room for extra storage. When working with beautiful, historic homes, sometimes the simplest decor is the best. 
The gardens included on this home's 1.4 acre property are full of colorful blooms. Can't you just imagine picking a fresh bouquet for the dining room table, then taking a stroll down to the boat launch that's only a short walk away?
If you love this New England country home as much as we do, share it with your friends!

When the location is right and the structure of the home is sound, a little elbow grease and a lot of heart can transform that childhood residence into a home for the future.
