There's old and then there's OMG-old. This house is the latter: originally built in 1737 (!), this amazing cape has been carefully updated and revamped over the years (decades? centuries?), but still retains its colonial blueprint. In fact, the 2 bed/2 bath 1650 square foot main house looks like a Williamsburg original, but it's located in southern Maine, in the small town of Biddeford, just 3 miles from the Atlantic's rocky shore. From the clapboard exterior to the wide pine floors, fireplaces, and built-in cabinets, the home mixes museum-worthy details with a warm, comfortable vibe. Priced at $459K, the property includes a ginormous barn with workshops, quaint storage shed/studio, and nearly 2 acres of gently sloping land with 350+ feet of river frontage and a private dock. Now, take a closer look here, then call your mover.
