171 Patterson Road, Hampden, Maine, 04444
Cute and cozy 3-bedroom cape style home is just the place to start or end your home ownership! Hardwood floors in the recently updated kitchen and the good-sized living room. 2 bedrooms and a completely renovated full bath with tiled shower complete the first floor. The second floor features a third bedroom and some unfinished attic space perfect for storage. The dry basement has a partially finished area perfect for a family room or play area. The home has 3 heat sources with the central heating system being a HWBB boiler (currently under a service plan), a wood furnace (not used in past two seasons but still ready-to-go if the power goes out) and the upstairs has electric baseboards for those cold winters nights when the convection heat from downstairs isn’t quite enough.
The outside of the home is vinyl-clad with an asphalt shingle roof that is only about 10 years old. The matching 2-car detached garage has built-in shelving and work bench space as well as storage above for seasonal items. The garage is wired and has dual electric door openers. The driveway is paved with a turn-around spot for drive-in/drive-out convenience and safety.
When they say real estate is all about location this is what they are talking about!
Located in a rural setting just off Route 202, this 2.8± acre lot features a great yard with raised beds for flowers in the front, a 30 ft by 20 ft garden area in the back yard and a wooded fringe area for exploring and buffer zone. There is plenty of privacy here, yet you are less than 5 miles from I-95 and it is only 10± miles to Bangor. Hampden has named itself as “The Community of Choice in Central Maine” for very good reasons. Despite recent area growth, Hampden has preserved its rural character. By protecting its open space and rural landscapes while accommodating well planned commercial and residential development, the town has preserved that “small town” feel while providing many “big town” services and encouraging both citizen participation and economic growth. The town offers a diverse range of experiences on the Penobscot River Estuary including a marina and public boat landing offering access to some of the area’s best bass and sea bass fishing areas around. The boating, canoeing and kayaking can take you places you won’t believe. For those who don’t enjoy the great outdoors as much, there are both a recreation center and a town pool.
