Catch the inspiration for farmhouse renovation through this gorgeous century-old specimen

A quality renovation requires a certain level of respect for the character and charm of a home, especially if that home is a 100+-year-old farmhouse. For the Kieffer's, who purchased this northern Maine farmhouse, the restoration process involved stripping the home down to its studs. From there they began rebuilding the property piece by piece. To the exterior, they added new shingles, siding, and windows. The interior underwent a transformation in layout with the removal of a few walls. In particular, the wall between the dining room and the kitchen was removed. This creates a welcoming, open concept public space making hosting dinner parties and holiday celebrations a real treat. In addition, this is a feature that is likely to appeal to a wide variety of buyers if the Kieffers should choose to sell in the future.
The dated yellow kitchen was replaced with a bright and contemporary farmhouse kitchen complete with Shaker-style cabinetry, rustic overhead beams, and a large coordinating island. The island also features a unique storage option for those with a large collection of wine. Stone countertops and decorative lighting add the finishing touches to the kitchen. The dining space is light and spacious with plenty of room for an expansive farmhouse table.

The second floor, where the master bedroom is located, received a complete renovation as well. New drywall and a fresh coat of paint create a seamless foundation for furniture and decor in the roomy master bedroom.
If you're looking to relocate, keep this classic Maine farmhouse in your list, as it may just be available for purchase in the future.

If spacious porches, white columns and shuttered windows are what classic farmhouses are made of, then this home certainly fits the bill.
