16 Seekins Way, Orrington, Maine, 04474
Tired of the high property taxes in the Greater Bangor area? You need to see this 3-bedroom 2-bath home on 4 private acres with a 3-car garage. Easy 20-minute commute to Bangor and about 45 minutes to Ellsworth or Belfast.
Inside you will enjoy the floor plan. An open kitchen and dining area with cathedral ceilings and direct access to the outside deck space for entertaining guests. If you enjoy cooking, there is plenty of ceramic tiled counter space and wrap around bar. The large windows and sky light keep this area bright and cheery. Finishing the first floor is an updated bathroom, the master bedroom and a second bedroom. All rooms have their own heat pump so everyone will be comfortable.
The owners just finished the daylight basement. The living room is large enough for your sectional, big screen TV, and then some. You won’t find a better place to watch the game on Sunday with your friends. Off the living room is an office area with exterior entrance door. It is a perfect set up for a home-based business, you could use this entrance to keep it separate from the rest of the house. Or if you are into earning some extra money with Air BNB, this would also be a good possibility. The laundry room is conveniently located off the hallway and is hidden by louvered doors. The utility room offers great extra storage space. The third bedroom and brand-new bath finish the basement living space.
The property is very well landscaped so you will have color throughout the season. Enjoy a cook out on the deck and then adjourn to the fire pit area for a fun evening with friends under the stars, smores never tasted so good.
The lot has plenty of open space for the person looking to start a small hobby farm. If you enjoy wildlife, watch many species of birds, wild turkey and deer right out your window. In the winter, you can connect to the snowmobile trail and take advantage of Maine’s winter activities.
The three-car garage with separate electric meter, has a heated workshop, camper hook-up and running water. The upstairs has the beginnings of an apartment space. The paved driveway has room for a small basketball court to keep the kids enjoying the outdoors.
A public boat launch to the Penobscot River is just over a mile from this home. Canoe, kayak or take a boat ride to Bucksport and enjoy dinner at one of the waterfront restaurants. For a little more adventure, you could boat down to Penobscot Bay and catch some striped bass along the way.
This is the perfect Maine location to make your home. Orrington has less than 4,000 people, has one of the lowest tax rates in the county and offers the choice of high schools. If you enjoy the outdoors but still need to be close to Bangor, this is where you belong.
