Welcome to the Captain George T. Getchell House, a charming 1893 Victorian with modern touches situated in the center of desirable Bowdoinham village and mere blocks away from waterfront, gastropub and library. Stained glass windows, rich carved wood and tin ceilings adorn an open layout well-suited to modern lifestyles. The 1.35 acre fenced grounds - visited by hummingbirds, woodpeckers and a host of songbirds - feature cool maple woods, large sunny yard with fire pit, greenhouse, native pollinator gardens edged with rock walls, fenced permaculture-method vegetable garden and 2-coop chicken area with fenced run. Two small post and beam outbuildings and a yurt invite many uses. A stone patio in the backyard is a perfect spot for Summer dining. Energy efficiency upgrades include 24 solar panels, heat pumps for year-round comfort and an on-demand, whole-house generator. The ample three-car garage provides plenty of room for vehicles, storage, work or art space with a heat pump, new windows, french door and a full, insulated room above - great for a gym! In the main house, a newly renovated kitchen with stainless steel island flows into a spacious room with wood stove, farmhouse dining table and seating area, which in turn connects to a cozy den. A versatile bonus room with cabinets is an ideal spot for crafts, hobbies or an additional kitchen area with its own wood stove. First floor full bath features convenient Jack and Jill doors. The beautiful woodlined 3-season garden-view room is a haven for relaxation. Upstairs are four ample bedrooms, a full bath with laundry and a small, three-season porch for plants. Walk-up attic and full insulated, unfinished basement. Step back in time with a harmonious blend of historic charm, modern updates and captivating outdoor spaces. 15 minute drive to Brunswick and 35 minutes to Portland. A Maine sanctuary in the heart of Bowdoinham. *NEW septic system installed Nov 2023.*
