Harpswell (N,S,E&W) house description

Our house is located in South Harpswell, about 11 miles east of Brunswick, ME.

We have a 3 bedroom, year-round house overlooking Basin Cove, a tidal area. The house features all the amenities of home: dishwasher, washer/dryer, DVD, outdoor grill, and comfortable beds, combined with a beautiful waterfront location.
If you enjoy kayaking, canoeing or just watching the fish jump, this is the perfect spot. There are fantastic sunsets.
On the first floor is a full kitchen, living room, dining room area with wood stove for cool fall evenings, a bedroom with a twin trundle, full bathroom with a jacuzzi, sun porch. These rooms all have views of the cove. There is also a spare room with a small library offering books and games for adults and children.

              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2002

              About the owner: This home is family owned. We are all originally from Pittsburgh, PA. but now only mom lives there. We love the quiet cove and watching the tides go in and out with all the wonderful wildlife that comes with this location. All of us like to be out on the water canoing, kayaking, and taking a swim. Now that we are a family living in various places on the east coast, this is our home meeting place. It offers all that our growing family enjoys.

              Why the Owner Chose Harpswell (N,S,E&W):
              We are all outdoor folks and this location let us get away from the crowds to enjoy all that we love.
