Welcome to the Simeon Murch Homestead. Here's your opportunity to own one of Unity, Maine's most historic homes. Simeon Murch arrived in Unity from Gorham and built a log home in 1794. In 1830 he built ''the brick house'' on Albion Road. Successive generations of the Murch family lived and farmed here. Simeon was known as a successful and progressive farmer and town records say the bricks to his home were made on-site. Simeon used the English bond method of bricklaying which is considered one of the strongest brick construction methods known, and is still used today. Nearly two-centuries later, Simeon's gorgeous, Cape-style, brick farmhouse is as strong as ever and retains many original features. High ceilings, horse-hair plaster walls, deep window wells, wide-plank, pine floors, hand-made pitted glass panes, original moldings, woodwork and doors, several original Norfolk latches, staircase flourish, a one-meter wide original front door, granite lintels and a granite and brick walk out cellar. Once inside, modern updates and tasteful decor let you know you're living in the 21st century. The modern kitchen, includes crushed quartz countertops, track lighting and stainless steel, Italian appliances. The home features a living room with fireplace, library, study, dining room, a sun-flooded eat-in kitchen with deck off the kitchen, laundry/fitness room (or first floor primary), large mudroom, two full bathrooms and two bedrooms upstairs. The unfinished attic, makes for great storage, or could be finished. Sunrise and sunset views await the next owner. The house also features a reliable steam boiler for moist heat and updated electrical and plumbing with a water filtration system. The two-car garage contains salvaged beams of the barn which was destroyed by fire a century ago. A tall privet hedge separates the garage from the house. The large lot includes a second, drilled well. Mature landscaping abounds.
