Shoestring Manor strikes that miraculous, harmonious blend of classic charm and thoughtful, purposeful modern styling. Located on a grassy, oversized in-town lot in the Historic District*, which encompasses the lush Mall area of the village. Thomaston still maintains that small town feel - think 4th of July parades, festivals and a quaint, walkable Main Street complete with shops, cafes, restaurants, a library, galleries and an incredible family-owned grocery. You can walk to the Public Landing (or drive for those wanting to launch a kayak or a paddle board). This is where the St. George River begins, a bustling saltwater-way running between the St. George and Cushing Peninsulas before it empties out in Port Clyde into Muscongus and Penobscot Bays. The house was built in 1850 when shipbuilders were crafting sturdy vessels in Thomaston Harbor; the same craftsmanship was afforded to many of the historic houses found here and Shoestring Manor is no exception. This 3 bedroom, 2.5 bath house has been maintained to extraordinary standards and feels comfortable with outdoor living spaces balanced nicely with the serene layout of the interior. Three bedrooms and 1.5 baths in the main portion of the house and a bright, airy primary suite provides privacy from the rest of the house. This room has hardwood floors, skylights, a lovely view of the back yard and a beautiful bathroom with a tub and a glassed custom shower. A heated, attached garage provides storage and protection from the elements for 2 vehicles. The original floors remain intact and have been newly sanded and stained; recent maintenance includes new cedar shingles on the garage, a new roof, a new dishwasher and a new water heater all within the last 2 years. Other upgrades include a central vacuum system, an invisible fence for pets and heated, 2 car garage with direct access into the house. *Although this is designated a Historic District, there are no restrictions or requirements in place.
