Buy The Charlotte’s Web Farm

August 6, 2017

The Bangor Daily News reports that you can now buy a historic 44 1/2-acre saltwater farm in North Brooklin, Maine, once owned by E.B. White and his wife, Katharine, for more than 50 years, for only $3.7 million.

The property contains the barn that’s a setting for White’s 1952 children’s novel Charlotte’s Web. White was also a contributor to The New Yorker and co-author of the writing style guide Strunk & White’s Elements of Style.

The house comes with a guesthouse, ponds and lovingly maintained gardens.

There are also spiders, although some people might expect that.

Real estate broker Martha Dischinger said, “They might be very interested in the fact that it was E.B. White’s residence for many years, and that’s where Charlotte lived, and Templeton, and all the history of all of his books. This house is in magnificent condition. It’s been lovingly taken care of over the years, since the late 1700s.”

Dischinger said she hopes to sell to a buyer with a love of literature
