Whitefield is one of the few midcoast towns still largely focused on agriculture and while close to the Damariscotta/Newcastle hub, it is a pace removed. An Amish community has established here reinvigorating some of the old farms. This 1835 Federal farmhouse is an echo from Whitefield's early days. In the past several years the current owners have substantially renovated the interiors and exterior preserving some marvelous wide pine floors adding a warmth to many of the rooms. The house has the old flow pattern of coming into the shed/ell, now mudroom/laundry, then into the kitchen and on into the house proper. The dining room and living room have been opened up and the lovely and spacious front hall seamlessly connects the library and front parlor and the bedrooms upstairs. There are three utility structures - the connected woodshed and the detached large and smaller barns. The large barn features two stalls with space for a tack room and ample room for equipment and hay storage plus a garage space. The smaller barn is ideal for a workshop with a good sized second floor for lumber storage. The frontage on the Sheepscot River is a particularly fine stretch with the nearby old granite railroad trestle. This section between Kings Mills and Head Tide is favored water for canoeing and kayaking especially during spring run-off. Just a few miles away are the Sheepscot General Store, a country-style food store and gathering place and the Sheepscot Links, a popular local 9-hole golf course.
