Property Description

This new quadplex is in beautiful mid-coast Maine’s newest multigenerational ecovillage neighborhood. Built by the innovative GO Logic, the house is cozy and draft-free even on the coldest winter nights. It is one of the most efficient homes in Maine, because of the excellent insulation, triple-glazed windows and doors, a passive solar design, and an efficient ventilation system. Save 90% on your home heating bill, and barely use the electric back-up heat. *Note, the home currently has cement floors unlike the floors in the photo.

Neighborhood Description

There are 36 households in the ecovillage nestled on 42 acres of rolling farmland and forest. The village supports it’s own 3-acre CSA farm, as well as family garden plots. Hiking, cross-county skiing and snowshoeing are literally right out the back door. When complete (currently under construction), the common house will host voluntary shared meals, as well as a guest bedroom, living room, dining room, root cellar, commercial kitchen, and children's playroom.

Market Area

The ecovillage is located just 2 miles from the friendly, thriving town of Belfast and its beautiful harbor, where sailing, kayaking, and paddle-boarding abound! Belfast is an arts center, with nearly 20 art galleries, supporting a large number of local artists. Music is readily available year round. There is an amazing range of locally-owned shops, organic farms, a well-stocked public library, a YMCA, a Montessori school, and several large employers.
