72 HODGDON ST., Damariscotta — $795,000
4 beds, 3 baths, 3,040 SF

Originally built in 1754, this farmhouse on four acres along the Damariscotta River looks like it has a two-car garage/lofted bonus area recently renovated or added, with solar panels on top. But if you like antique style, the main house has classic details like feather edge boards, exposed beams, and three fireplaces. In addition to solar, the listing notes that a wind turbine and heat pump bring the monthly electricity bill down to lows of $30. Listed by James Drum, Drum & Drum Real Estate. See the full listing.
