The home has hardwood flooring in the living area in about half the home which has been refinished and looks great with the vinyl and laminate flooring used in the kitchen, bathrooms and two of the bedrooms.  The entire interior is freshly painted and finished including new interior doors.  This is a move in ready home with every finishing detail taken care of including hard wired smoke detectors everywhere they are required.  This is a blank canvas for you to add your personal touches to turn the house into your home.

East Millinocket is a small community of approximately 1550 residents.  It has shopping, banking and some dining options available.  It also has a full-time police and fire department which provide peace of mind that help is close by in the event it may be needed.  Healthcare can be found in Millinocket at Millinocket Regional Hospital as well as Katahdin Valley Health Center.  Nearby you will find opportunities to hunt, fish, hike and bike.  This is a region of unparalleled outdoor opportunities with Mount Katahdin and Baxter State Park as well as The North Maine Woods region just a short drive from the home.  The nearby Penobscot River and the Pemadumcook chain of lakes are there for your boating and fishing enjoyment.  If you are looking for a well-built home in a quiet, small town, near outdoor recreation areas, then you want to call and schedule a viewing of this impressive ranch style home.
