Why You'll Love It

Are you searching for an affordable 1 level home that is located an easy commute to Bangor? Come see this 3-bedroom ranch home conveniently located in Howland, Maine.

The home has a very functional floor plan with an open kitchen and dining area. A large living room with laminate flooring. All bedrooms are located on one end of the home and share a full bathroom. There is a walk-up attic space which is a rare feature in most ranch style housing today. This space provides a lot of additional storage. The basement has a bonus family room for entertaining, use as a home theatre or a place for the kids to hang with their friends.

A 26 X 32 two bay garage has enough room to park 3 small cars. The doors are extra tall overhead doors to accommodate larger pickup trucks or SUV’s. More bonus space is available on the second floor of the garage. Those who like tinkering will love this building.

A full concrete basement has a doghouse entrance in the back as well as interior access from the first floor. The mechanicals are stored here including the hot water baseboard oil heating system, electrical and plumbing systems. Town water and sewer eliminate the worries of maintaining private systems. The home was constructed in 1973, however that is hard to see with many improvements having been done over the years. Upgrades include metal roofing, vinyl siding, door and window replacements and interior finishes.

Cross Street is a side street that does not get a lot of traffic. The yard is nice and level and has plenty of room for gardening. The proximity to the local school makes it possible for junior high and high school students to walk rather than ride a bus. That will free up a lot of time and travelling expenses for both parents and students!

Howland is located about 32 miles north of Bangor with an I-95 entrance only 1.5 miles from the home. The town has good internet speeds so working remotely is also a good option. The town has a pleasant rural feel and a population of only about 1,200. The Penobscot and Piscataquis Rivers intersect in Howland providing a lot of water sport potential. A community park with walking trails along the river is less than 1 ½ miles from the home.
