This Old House
We spotted this intriguing property in Searsport, Maine, last Friday. We've been passing it on our way up to Mount Desert Island for years, looking saggier and more weatherbeaten each time we go by. (All of us, that is, not just the house.) We decided we'd better stop for a photo just in case it collapsed in a strong wind.
Shabby chic, Victorian charm, space galore inside and out, natural air conditioning — perfect for us! But there's no "For Sale" sign, just a "Keep Out." Darn.
