Freeport house description

Privacy and charm near Freeport. Set on 8 ½ wooded acres just three miles from Freeport Village and LL Bean, five miles from the ocean, twenty minutes from Portland, fifteen minutes from Brunswick.

Imagine enjoying the foliage, the coast, the shopping, then returning to a fireplace, hot tub, and total privacy!

The home is fully furnished, with three bedrooms, a gourmet kitchen, fireplace, spacious deck with hot tub, well-maintained gardens, garage, cable, and wireless internet. Even a baby grand piano! The master suite with double vanity is at one end of the house, the other two bedrooms are at the other end with their own shared bathroom.

Ideal home base for summer vacation, foliage season, or winter getaways.

This is a peaceful, private setting - you can't see or hear the neighbors. The view in every direction, including from the oversized deck, is gardens and trees. We have deer and turkey sightings regularly. The stars at night are brilliant, and especially wonderful viewed from the hot tub.

Enjoy the coast of Maine without paying waterfront rates, and spread out and relax in this 2,000 square foot property.

From our guest book:

'a great house and a great location'
'a lovely home in a beautiful setting'
'we'll have many wonderful memories of our time here in this beautiful, peaceful setting'
'this is one vacation that we will remember for years to come'
''Wow' is all we can say…this is one vacation that we will remember for years to come…wish we could stay longer.'
'We come to Maine every fall and rent a house…this was one of the best – especially enjoyed the hot tub.'
'The beds were very comfy. The kitchen had everything we needed.'

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 1997

                          About the owner: We built this house in 1997. Circumstances have taken me to Oregon, but I plan to keep the house and return to it. So this isn't just a rental property -- it's my home. I'm pleased to be able to share it, and it's a house that really should be full of life all the time. I work in healthcare marketing and public relations, which is what brought me out here. We run a small wine brokerage on the side, bringing Oregon and Washington wines back to Maine. We had two dogs when we lived there, and that's why we're pet-friendly. I've not had problems in 3 years of renting, except for one party. So I'm keeping it pet-friendly. Everything you see on the exterior, from the foundation walls out, I did. Deck, plantings, etc. I'm fortunate to have my brother as my property manager, and he's keeping everything up for me. I love Oregon, but it has made me appreciate the pace and privacy in Maine. People are packed pretty tightly here, whereas at my Maine home I can't even see the neighbors. I think that privacy is one of the best features of the house.
