Live steps away from the Snow Marine mooring field in Rockland's ever emerging, waterfront South End. Boats and this home have a long history as 86 Mechanic was first occupied by Captain Arthur Wingfield as he planted his feet on terra-firma in 1882. Even then it was popular to work close to home as Wingfield's brigantine ship was built across the street in 1866 by Snow, Farwell & Co. Shipyard. This lovely South End home sits handsome in today's quiet and peaceful neighborhood just steps away from the Snow Marine Park's public landing and mooring field, and the Sail, Power & Steam Museum -- home to much of mid-coast Maine's maritime history. Downtown Rockland is an easy 1/2 mile stroll along this little city's waterfront. With 3-bedooms, 2-full baths this 1,617 sq. feet home is well maintained with 'strong bones' and fortified by modern amenities such as blown-in basement insulation, modern propane fired furnace averaging 400 gallons per year, heat pump hot water heater and solar panels that yield a steady $14.00 electric bill each month. Stay extra warm on chilly days by the living room pellet stove and stay cool on summer days with the mini-split heat pump. The 1-car attached garage and workshop are a bonus with side yards perfect for small gardens. Up to three spots for off-street parking. Be part of this special neighborhood in a home that has been cared for by members of the same family who purchased from Captain Wingfield in 1930.
