Artists' Living Working Space in the other Brookl(i)n: For Sale Cheap

Yes it's a project. But this wonderful building at the top of Center Harbor in Brooklin, Maine has been unsold for too long. Listed for $299k but it's been on the market a while. The Oddfellows Hall has great views of the prettiest harbor in Maine. Our friend Chris Baker had his studio in there for years. They poured a new foundation a couple of years ago and drains and septic are new. I have no interest in this building other than wanting to see it used and loved again: it's definitely the most striking building in town, and it deserves a tune-up and some imaginative new owners.
