The Unique Benefits at this House:
The home is very unique and NOT a typical rental property. The house has been painstakingly restored with a new architecturally sensitive addition. The result combines the best of old world charm and state of the art modern amenities. Every convenience and comfort has been taken into account. The physical location is incredible. Literally walk to everything. You constantly are aware of the water and the nautical history and heritage of the Kennebunkport. There are wonderful dining options, art galleries and shops within a 5 minute walk. The property is beautiful inside and out. The Williamsburg style grounds and landscaping are exquisite and represent a very unique feature of the property. Whether it's Spring, Summer, Fall or during Christmas Prelude the inside and outside of the house complement each other in a very unique and special way.
