Owner info

Year Purchased: 1981

About the owner: Bruce and Debby are transplanted Boston suburbanites who came to Kennebunkport full-time following work in high tech startups and a decade as hotel/beach bar owners in the British Virgin Islands. It was love at first sight when they got lost in Cape Porpoise in 1981 and purchased their house on that very day. Now retired, Bruce and Debby live across the street and enjoy the many friends and exploits of their 4 children and 7 grandchildren.

Why the Owner Chose Cape Porpoise:
On our first trip to Maine, we followed the coast and ended up in this quiet, picturesque cove. A ‘For Sale’ sign was just being hammered into the ground in front of 25 Pier Road and our offer was accepted a few hours later. After 30 years we have come to love the community, and the wide range of activities of the area.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
On the water with its own dock, the house is within walking distance of 8 restaurants, a library, grocery store, post office and coffee shop/take-out deli/catering service. The many shops and restaurants, beaches and golf courses of Kennebunkport and Kennebunk are all within a 5-minute drive. And the house is mid-way between the beautiful seaside towns of Portland and Portsmouth with their top-rate restaurants, museums, and other attractions. High tide kayaking and low tide walks to the many islands at the head of the harbor, including Goat Island with its lovely lighthouse to be climbed. A short walk from the house, Pier Road ends on a bustling fishing/lobstering pier with three restaurants (an outdoor casual lobster restaurant, a sports pub, and a high-end gourmet restaurant with beautiful harbor views). Spend time on the pier watching the lobstermen bringing in their daily catch or try your hand at fishing. The cottage's lawn makes a great spot for sunbathing, bocci, croquet, or passing the evening around the outdoor firepit.
