A Jamesport cottage built in 1904 on an old tent platform in a former Methodist campground, which was fully restored more than a decade ago, has come on the market for $549,999.
It is rare for homes in this community to come up for sale, as many are passed down to family members, says listing agent Victoria Germaise of Douglas Elliman Real Estate. The last sale of a home there was in 2008, according to property records.
A local builder restored the two-bedroom, one-bathroom home after it had been empty for 20 years, before the current owners purchased it in 2005, Germaise says. He repaired the stained-glass windows and refinished the original wood floors and wainscoting. A basement had been added in 1980 and the home has 10-foot ceilings.
“This one has central air and it’s fully winterized,” Germaise says. “So it’s got all the modern conveniences, but also the old charm.”
