From the Zillow listing:

Looking for plenty of room for living, storage or a business? Price reduced to $90K for this spacious house on over an acre of attractive land. The 10 room house has around 2,500 square feet of space plus an attached 36×42 two story barn/garage/workshop. The included open gently-sloping lot has plenty of frontage on Rangeley Road (Route 4) and Dodge Road for building another home or a business. Prime commercial location (see Commercial Listing #1571671 for details). There’s even a mini-orchard with 11 heirloom apple trees. Then why is it so cheap? Because the building is not suitable for residential use without a comprehensive rehab. The flooring needs replacement to eliminate overwhelming odors, the plumbing and heating need repairs (the electrical looks pretty good) and the barn roof leaks. This property has real benefits (plenty of space, extra land, business potential) but ‘move-in-now-and-live-there’ is not one of them. Still, if you are seeking a renovation project, this could be your diamond in the rough. Estate sale, property to be sold AS-IS. Land is mostly in Avon, small piece in Phillips. Could be a candidate for a rehab loan but unlikely to qualify for conventional financing.
