If the house underwent significant renovations the one at the end of Burtis Lane might be it.

Well, if this was torn down, someone should be drawn and quartered. Managable in size and charm personified, I'd move right in.

Very lovely and agree w Magnus, a manageable propery with much grace.

Turner- I grew up in a still own a house that Zach has featured on his site. I love it dearly, but every rain storm identifies a new leak, every wind a new draft and every weekly inspection tour another corner that needs paint. And my house is considered to be in excellent shape. As I said, I love it, but I gaze longingly at houses like Mr. Warner's and think "Freedom".

My security word of the day? Wiessem. Could that be "wise men"- like our fellow commentators?

The opinions about traditional Maine architecture expressed in the comments page are his and his alone. All that I know and love about architecture begins with the graceful early houses that I grew up with in Maine.

Looks like the house is at the end of Shady Meadows Lane, the southwest corner of the cul-de-sac.
