244 Eaton Hill Road, Rumford, Maine, 04276
On a dead-end street in Rumford, Maine sits a remarkable home with unrivaled views and plenty of privacy! Built in 2007 on a 3-acre plot, this immaculately maintained 3,600± sq ft single-living home is exceptional both in character and in location. Not only does this home boast of quality construction and fine finishes throughout, but pride of ownership beams from every corner of the property.
While this home really is one that you need to see to fully appreciate, a few of its many impressive characteristics include: a well-appointed kitchen with custom cabinetry and granite countertops, a dining area that is connected to the kitchen which makes serving food, hosting get-togethers, and having dinner as a family feel simpler and more natural, a cozy living room with beautiful oak floors, three good-sized bedrooms that all have plenty of closet space including a walk-in closet in the master suite, an abundance of windows that create a light-flooded home and offer bold views of the mountains that ring the property, a finished basement that has radiant floors making it perfect to use for extra storage, flex space, or even to convert to an in-law apartment, a cold storage room in the basement to keep your wine, potatoes, flower bulbs, etc., an outdoor wood furnace built by Central Boiler that affords you an energy efficient and eco-friendly way to heat your home, and a faux shake siding that gives you all the beauty of wood, but without any of the maintenance.
This home is being sold fully furnished, so it is 100% turnkey. What sets this fully furnished sale apart from others, though, is that many of the furnishings in the home are striking, custom wooden pieces including tables, barstools, hutches, etc., that have been built to complement this home and have been built to last generations. At a time when these types of unique, handcrafted pieces are hard to come by and expensive to purchase, you will not have to worry about extended delivery dates or breaking the bank! And, more importantly, you will immediately feel the warmth and character that these pieces give to this home when you walk through the door.
Outside, the home overlooks your own private, man-made (and stocked!) pond that is set in the middle of a gently sloping, mature backyard. Beyond your backyard, there are unobstructed views across Rumford Valley of nearby mountains, including views of the local ski hill, Black Mountain of Maine, lit up at night! There is a two-bay garage/barn on the property that is ready to house your vehicles/toys and animals, and an outbuilding that formerly served as a pool house that could be used for storage or even a workshop or rental unit as it has plumbing and electricity. In addition to the 3 acres that this home sits on, there is an option to buy 75 additional acres that are connected to the property at $1,500/acre. Stack on top of that the fact that this property also abuts conservation land, and you’ve got plenty of room to roam!
From this piece of property you have close access to trails for ATVing, four-wheeling, biking, and snowmobiling, to rivers and ponds for fishing, swimming, boating, and canoeing, and to mountains for hiking, skiing, snowshoeing, and camping. Rumford and the surrounding River Valley region really do offer up the opportunity to enjoy the outdoors during all four seasons!
A short drive from this property, you will find restaurants, retail stores, and local government offices in Rumford’s service center, and convenient access to Route 2 which parallels Interstate 95 northward. You are only 1.5 hours to Portland and 2 hours to Bangor from here, so when you want access to Maine’s larger cities you do not have to go too far.
If you are looking for a meticulously maintained home that is functional, but also warm, artful and comfortable, and that is private, but also boasts openness to take in the natural vistas. Come check out 244 Eaton Hill Road!
