Property description

Built in 1890, this recently remodeled, charming vacation home is steps from Harbor Beach and the Harbor with some views of the water. There is plenty of space for 12 people with 6 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, living room, family room, and kitchen. There is a large front porch. An optional two bedroom attached apartment with a complete kitchen and living room can be rented separately for an additional $1500 per week.

The location simply can' be beat!! Take the 1 minute walk down the hill to the beach or harbor. Wander down the Cliff Walk with its spectacular views of the ocean. The Wiggly Bridge is a short walk away, providing a lovely walk through the Steadman Woods. End your day with a family dinner at home or at one of the many nearby restaurants, many within walking distance.

York is a popular beach community with history, charm and accessibility. First settled in 1624 and the first incorporated city in America, the area offers a myriad of fun things to do including relaxing on the beach, fishing, sightseeing and shopping. It is home to the John Hancock Wharf and Mark Twain's Summer home and is an area which still has architectural examples from the Gilded Age, particularly the Shingle style.

There is much to do including fishing, kayaking, boating, biking, golfing, & dining in York and the surrounding communities of Kittery, Cape Neddick, Ogunquit or Portsmouth, NH. The area is known for summer theater, concerts, and the many activities in York Beach including 10 pin bowling, miniature golf, and salt water taffy and homemade ice cream . There are local forts, lighthouses. and historic homes. Rain or shine, there is an endless array of things to do.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2014

About the owner: Our family has spent summers in York Harbor since 1948, spending endless days on one the most beautiful in Maine. We are lucky enough to live in York and hope you too will enjoy what York has to offer.

Why the Owner Chose York Harbor:
We are excited to have purchased this historic property in 2014. We are busy updating the interior to provide the coastal feel it deserves. The highly sought after location of the house is at the top of the hill that runs down to the beach, allowing you to easily go back and forth without the bother of loading a car. It is also a 2 minute walk to the York Harbor Inn and Stage Neck Inn which host many weddings and have restaurants on site. A unique house in a unique location.
