Overview

Sheepscot Village is one of those unique locales that by its seamless integration with its natural surroundings simultaneously connects you to the past and present, the history that precedes ones arrival and the life one plans to live. Such a rich confluence of three rivers, accessible shorelines, estuarian resources, and a reversing falls was bound to attract native Americans and the subsequent European immigrants. A contested region during King Philip's War, by the early 1800's it had settled into an agrarian and shipbuilding hub with much of the classic architecture built then still in harmony with the old fields. It's no wonder the village itself is on the National Register of Historic Places. The home at 214 South Dyer's Neck Road is of this era starting as an 18th century barn and it's initial cape farmhouse and eventually growing into the early 1800's Federal stylized from the Georgian influence with a handsome Palladian window. Once a dominant Sheepscot farmstead of over 100 acres, 37 remain with the home guarding privacy on both sides of the road and stretching to shorelines on both the Sheepscot and Dyer's rivers. The shipbuilding of the village is in evidence in the house in certain joinery and adze marks on beams. Neglected for years in the late 20th century, the prior owners had rebuilt the sills and joists and the current owners, exercising a remarkable sensitivity to preserving its original character, have restored the home to its former grace with its period elements such as chair rails and paneling, rebuilt chimneys, revived period flower beds and kitchen gardens, while providing the modern and expected necessities: added and remodeled baths, kitchen, pantries, a heating system, and a Kohler generator. Some historic photos of the village have been included for your interest and enjoyment. Come see this home in Sheepscot Village to see how the beauty of the past has carried through to our time.
