The grounds consist of 60 acres of fields, woods, and shoreline on the Kennebec River. It is a long narrow property, 500 feet wide and more than a mile long. In colonial days, rivers were the “highways” by which people more easily traversed the countryside. Therefore, properties were set up to have short frontage on the river so that each property owner had access to the river. Along this stretch of the Kennebec River there are just a few properties that have this original set up. Most have been cut up over the years. The field behind the house (approximately 20 acres) is cut for hay every year and supplies the goats and llamas that now reside on the property. Two pastures on either side of the house are fenced. Over the years the property has supported sheep, goats, llamas, alpacas, a horse, and donkey. About 35 acres are wooded and the wood has been harvested several times. On the west side of the property is a beautiful, rolling lawn leading to the Cedar Grove Road. A “camp like” pathway takes you to the shore of the magnificent Kennebec River. The current owners have a rudimentary docking system which allows boating and swimming at low as well as high tide. Wildlife including deer, wild turkeys, an occasional moose, fox, eagles, and many other birds are seen throughout the year.
