So often the write up of a Houlton Maine home for sale dives into the room count, features, location, property taxes, how many baths.
And add a couple images. Spice it up with plot plan, video link and then move on. To the marketing treatment of another Houlton Maine home for sale. Or other type of property listing from farms, land to waterfront and small mom and pop businesses that come up for consideration.
So back to the hunt and peck subject of this blog post on Active Rain this morning as a busy real estate day gets underway.
The owners of the property at 3 Weeks Street, Houlton Maine.
Let's start by telling you about them.
Because who lived in a home for sale is valuable information.
The stuff you only get off the grapevine from neighbors.
Not usually from the real estate agent or broker. To get a handle on what what we are dealing with going into the sneak a peak of the sticks and bricks.
Herschel and Mildred MacIntosh, this Houlton Maine home owners were an amazing couple.
He a thirty third degree mason. She a dress store owner and both very active in the Houlton Maine community. I knew Herschel best from decades of service in Rotary. He was always smiling, a runner, and not mean mouthed or negative.
Mildred was especially active in the local Houlton Maine chamber of commerce, headed up the retail trade board.
Both were ambassadors of Houlton Maine, their home town pride glowing brightly.
The pair bought this home at 3 Weeks Street Houlton Maine in 1952.
Over 63 years in one couple's ownership.
They must have enjoyed living here to stay so long right?
Did not have a stork drop a pink or blue bundle of joy. But were very close to a niece who was treated like a daughter. No wear and tear on the home for sale in Houlton Maine happened. No basketball played in the living room. No kitchen hockey or big wheels going round and round and hitting woodwork.
(TRANSLATION: The Maine home for sale is a cream puff. Low mileage, pampered with less use because the couple moved to a lake home from spring to early fall. No rambunctious kids doing things inside that are meant to be outside activities to spare the home.)
The couple had the means from financial success to do the vinyl siding, new windows, updates to the home. Repairs were not put off and the house for sale has never been neglected.
The location of 3 Weeks Street Houlton Maine is a couple blocks from downtown Houlton Maine.
The parks and rec, Cary Library and the Temple Theatre.
You could live here easily without a car.
The post office, County Yankee Grocery are not far to hoof too under your own power.
The driveway is paved, there is a fireplace for Santa.
To make him not have to hop down off the roof, onto the open front porch.
To then dig deep into his pocket or wallet for the universal plastic flat key to gain entry. For the hit and run, stock the tree please and then up, up and away.
Just so you know, we don't lock house doors in Houlton Maine.
Vacationland is the 4th lowest crime state. Houlton Maine, Shiretown or County Seat of Aroostook County is half that number, the pretty impressive placement in the nation.

Is ready for a new couple, family to use this address on the upper left hand corner. The post office where to send return on their holiday Christmas cards. Oh, and there is a detached garage. A manicured hedge, flowering crab, landscaping. To make the private back and side yards more secluded, privacy protected.
