Property description

The house on Norwood Farms Road is on a ½ acre corner lot at the intersection of Eastern Point Road. This is a quiet neighborhood located between Route 1A and the mansions on the ocean. There are great ocean views in the winter, but the leaves on the trees limit the summer ocean views.

There is a large master bedroom with bathroom with shower stall. The guest bedroom has twin beds which can be put together to form a king size bed. The den has a couch that converts to a comfortable queen size bed. The large living room opens to the dining room. The kitchen is on the ocean side of the house, with a door leading to a stone patio equipped with lawn chairs and a charcoal grill. The house is surrounded by a large yard with huge oak trees providing plenty of shade in the summer. There is central air conditioning, which is rarely needed because of the ocean breezes and shade provided by the trees.

The Cliff Walk, a scenic footpath along the rocky coast, is a 5-minute walk from the front door. There are many opportunities for hiking and biking in the area. Long Sands Beach is a short drive or a 20-minute walk along Roaring Rock Road. York Beach is filled with small shops, restaurants, and the York Wild Kingdom & Amusement Park. The Cape Neddick Lighthouse (Nubble Light) is on a peninsula between Long Sands and Short Sands, and a beautiful spot to visit on a sunny day.

Perkins Cove, a charming ocean side collection of small shops and restaurants, is a 20-minute drive to the north. Marginal Way is another scenic ocean side cliff walk between Perkins Cove and Ogunquit Beach.

The Kittery Outlets are a major attraction for shoppers. When Pig Fly is a fantastic bakery on Route 1 between York and Kittery with free samples of dozens of types of bread. There is also a great produce stand on the east side of the road just south of York.

On Route 1, just off the highway, is Stonewall Kitchen with specialty foods, gifts and kitchenware that are sold all over the US. Even Eldridge Lumber is an attraction with the Atlantic Design Center. If you are thinking of doing home remodeling and looking for ideas this is a great place to visit.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2010

About the owner: Karen and I are retired teachers. We enjoy traveling, and have always enjoyed exploring all parts of Maine. We have two children, both still in college.

Why the Owner Chose York Harbor:
Karen grew up in Portland Maine and spent summers in the York Beach area. We were married in Kennebunkport Maine. This house was built for her Aunt and Uncle in the 1960s, and we are excited to have taken ownership of the house. We have limited time to spend at the house each year, but enjoy sharing this amazing location with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
We begin each visit to the house by going on the Cliff Path walk, a beautiful rocky trail along the ocean that ends at York Harbor Beach. Everyone will enjoy climbing down the cliffs to the ocean, or walking along the beach. Continue walking to the right of the Stage Neck Inn on a path along the harbor to the Wiggly Bridge. On the far side of the bridge is Steedman Woods with more trails to hike and explore. Walk north along Route 1A to Long Sands where you will find a mile and a half of scenic beach front, ice cream stands, restaurants and shops. If you choose to drive there is plenty of meter parking. There are many great restaurants in the area featuring the seafood of Maine. Make sure to enjoy at least one breakfast at the Bagel Basket in York. The York Harbor Inn is within walking distance and offers fine dining, evening activities and a great Sunday brunch.
