Western Maine Foothills

West of the Maine Turnpike (I-95) you soon you start noticing the gradual rolling fields and farmland as you drive past the picturesque smaller towns and villages in York County, Cumberland County and southern areas of Oxford County.  The pine and hardwood forests appear and so do the larger Western Maine Foothills as you get farther from the beaches and coastal plain and closer to the Maine/New Hampshire border.

You drive through quintessential New England villages like Cornish, Limerick, Parsonsfield, Porter, Denmark and Brownfield and if you blink, you might just miss them. Town squares with gazebos, postcard perfect antique shops, apple orchards, grange halls that double as theaters and art centers lend the air of by-gone days. People wave to you from their front porches as you walk by, whether you know them or not.

If you are looking to get back to nature, both York County and Cumberland County have numerous nature preserves and public lands and there is almost always access to lakes, ponds and rivers.

New England Style and Antique Cape Farm Houses from the late 1700’s to the early 1900’s, Village Colonial and Victorian homes, acres and acres of land with rivers, fields and streams, ponds and woodland. Hilltop building sites with panoramic views you’ll never grow tired of. Legendary quality craftsmen who can build you a home that will stand the test of time – because that’s how we do it here in Maine.

I never grow tired of driving these roads, twisting, turning, crossing beautiful rivers, watching deer feeding in the fields, sun rising up on the foothills of Maine.
