                          Southport is an island about 6 miles long and 2 miles across at its widest. Access is by means of a swing bridge which opens on the half hour for boat traffic. The serenity of this island setting is augmented by nearby Booth bay Harbor and its varied marine activities, restaurants, art galleries, shops, antique stores, live theater, movie theater, aquarium ,etc. For families with children the nearby beach at Hendricks Head is fun and picturesque.Biking enthusiasts have various possibilities on and of the island. Small boats, kayaks, and canoes can tie-up at our dock from where access to the open ocean and surrounding islands and waterways/coves is feasible and safe. There is much to be explored on the island...a quaint seaside church, the landing at Newagen and its bold ocean views, hiking trails, a historical museum, a town library, and a couple of picturesque harbors. Both formal and informal dining is within walking distance of the home.

                          Golf: A challenging and well maintained 18 hole golf course is within a 10 min. drive; includes golf school/academy .

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2000

                          About the owner: We are Jane and Inder Cheema. Retired from ExxonMobil in 2000, and settled into property purchased in 1978, also on Southport, which served as our home base while working mostly overseas. We both immigrated to the US, Jane from Canada, and Inder from Kashmir, India, so Southport is special to us...it was our anchor during the many years of living overseas, and is now a summer base for children and grandchildren, and our year round home.

                          Why the Owner Chose Southport:
                          Close to our home on Southport; sounded like a good retirement project, which it was and continues to be.

                          The Unique Benefits at this House:
                          Away from the hustle and bustle of Boothbay Harbor, but close enough for convenient access if and when desired. Dock at property provides safe boating within protected Decker's cove, but also convenient access to a variety of adjoining interior and open ocean waterways.
