Listing of the Week- Greek Revival in Historic Limington Village, Maine

lim21Today, we feature the Dr. Henry Dimock Home– an 1848 Greek Revival in the town of Limington, Maine.

Stately and welcoming, this elegantly restored Greek Revival was built around 1848 and is listed on the National Register of Historic Places. It sits in the Limington Village Historic District in Southern Maine, surrounded by 23 other homes and buildings that contribute to the historic area. The house is located close to area shops, restaurants, lakes, and rivers (including the famous and impressive Limington Rapids on the Saco River). The Dimock House has many original features intact, including original doors and hardware, moldings, pine floors, lighting fixtures, and the main stairway.

lim1The house offers 3650 square feet of living space, 4 bedrooms and 1.5 baths 0n 2.5 beautiful acres. A new Buderus 5-zone furnace was installed in 2004 and the kitchen and baths have also been recently remodelled. All rooms have had plaster repaired and finished off, and have been newly painted.  Flowers by a master gardener are planted in perennial gardens everywhere around the property, and stone walls add a delightful New England country accent and historic feel as well.

lim4The spacious, high-ceilinged rooms make this is a beautiful home for those who love to entertain. The large first and second floor porches are the signature features of the house, and add wonderful spaces for relaxing or entertaining. Pride of ownership does indeed show throughout this home. With the distinctive porches, the delightful garden landscaping, and the recent updates, the Henry Dimock House is one you’ll be proud to own, too ! The Dimock House is listed by Linda Griffin of Pleasant River Properties, and more details are available at the listing page at Historic Homes Marketplace.

    @mechell….a house is generally considered “historic” if it is older & worthy of preservation — not necessarily becomes something famous happened there. The architecture of this Greek Revival home makes it historic — it features neat old columns, frieze, etc, that were typical of the 1820s-1850s.
