Biddeford Pool house description

Spectacular vacation home for larger families seeking a beautiful seacoast experience with lasting memories for children, parents, grandparents and friends. Spacious home with a wrap-around veranda ideal for lounging in the summer sun complemented with a second-floor interior porch overlooking the landmark South Point of Biddeford Pool and touched off with one-of-a-kind sunrise porch and sunset porch on the third floor providing breath-taking views of the Atlantic Ocean on one side and Biddeford Pool on the other.

First floor includes an open foyer with warm wooden stairway leading to the upper floors, a large family room with old-style windows, traditional bead board ceiling and evening lighting design ideal for family gathering and watching movies / TV using the wall-mounted big screen, high definition television with premium cable service. Also includes private library for the secluded book readers, a traditionally well appointed dining room alongside an award winning kitchen: bead board cabinets, granite countertops, rolling island, drinking fountain, all appliances and accent lighting that creates a mesmerizing evening atmosphere.

Second floor includes five spacious bedrooms, one being the master and all with individual full bathrooms. Huge closets within each bedroom. Recessed porch provides private view of South Point and the Atlantic Ocean. In summary, spacious and functional living quarters when retiring from the family living on the first floor.

The Atlantic Suite is on the third floor. It consists of a spectacularly bright, spacious master bedroom that will be the envy of everyone in your family. Beside the master bedroom is a secluded sitting / reading room with the best views of the ocean. It will be impossible to keep your family members from reading and game playing in this area, especially in the evening when the sun goes down. The sunset balcony is off the sitting room providing the best view of the sun sinking into the tidal pool as well as the Atlantic Ocean over the inland pool. Aside from a walk-in closet, the Atlantic Suite has a very special and spacious master ensuite including a glass block shower, his and hers vanities and even a bidet. The sunrise balcony is off the master ensuite providing a great place to have coffee and watch the sun rise over the Atlantic Ocean. The Atlantic Suite is very special tribute to the matriarch and patriarch of the family.

There is a wide-open unfinished basement for playing games during rain showers or for teenager-type parties. Ample parking is available in the rear of the building hidden from the street and beside the garage. Beautiful exterior lighting allows you to modestly highlight the traditional elegance of the home in the evening. Ceiling fans, telephone, cable TV, wired internet, wireless internet are provided in essentially every room – all designed to make your family as comfortable and connected as possible.

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2009

                          About the owner: Diane and Kevin Tourangeau have lived in Biddeford Pool since 1994 on Mile Stretch Road. Their primary residence is in Lake Forest, Illinois - a suburb of Chicago. They have four grown children: Jennifer, Victoria, Jillian and Gregeory - all of whom went to Bentley College in Boston and now live in the Boston area. Terabethia, the name of the home on Mile Stretch Road, is the center of family gatherings where all of the Tourangeau's continue to build upon the memories of Biddeford Pool.

                          Why the Owner Chose Biddeford Pool:
                          Diane and Kevin Tourangeau built a new home on a vacant lot in the heart of Biddeford Pool in 2009 for the purpose of renting to family and friends. The property was one of the few remaining gems in the Pool. The features of the house are over-shadowed only by the community spirit enjoyed by all during the summer months in this exclusive seaside enclave. Summers in Biddeford Pool are for families and friends seeking to share their lives and memories.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          11 First Street is a unique home that combines all of the amenities of a new house with the feeling of an old New England mansion. The carefully constructed mansard roof and wrap-around farmers porch give it a charm only found in yester-years while blending in with the Biddeford Pool community. Its location on a top of a hill yields ocean views enjoyed only by a few homes in Biddeford Pool. Its warm and inviting appeal allows you to be most comfortable without compromising any functionality or convenience.
