Set up a base for your Midcoast activities in this spacious, sunny in-town New Englander. Home retains original charm throughout its fully renovated sunny rooms. Well stocked kitchen with attached sunroom overlooking the garden may be the focal point of family activities, but could be rivaled by the large living room with two couches and entertainment center. Opportunities to unwind abound, including three bedrooms, 'reading nook' at the top of the stairs, the covered front porch or even the sunny laundry/exercise room. Bath's many amenities are only steps away: an 8-minute walk to the west will bring you to the shopping center, while a 10-minute walk to the east will bring you to Bath's thriving downtown Main Street. This street includes one of Maine's best stores for cooks. The sunny kitchen will be an excellent place to experiment with the cookbooks and ingredients you may find there, and you should feel free to use herbs from the gourmet garden outside your window and the spices from the spice cabinet. Bath is truly an excellent base point for exploring the Midcoast. Opportunities for mushroom foraging, hiking, beachcombing, fishing, shopping, and many other activities abound within an easy drive, and many are within an easy walk.

Year Purchased: 2004
About the owner: My expertise is in fisheries management. I managed Maine's scallop fishery for several years, and now work as an independent consultant in fisheries, as well as working to promote Maine scallops and improve the economic viability of Maine's scallop fishery. I also round this out by waiting tables at a waterfront bar in Portland. One of my favorite hobbies is mushroom foraging, and the summer of 2011 was amazing!
Why the Owner Chose Bath: This home offers the benefits of the Midcoast while being an easy commute to Portland, Freeport, Augusta and Rockland. It's extremely sunny (that's why I bought it), with a kitchen/sitting area that's a great place to entertain.
The Unique Benefits at this House: Easy drive to Portland, Rockland, Freeport, Boothbay, and quick walk to Bath's charming downtown. The home is extremely sunny, but also gets excellent breezes because of the way it's laid out.
