Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: Peter is from the mid west and says this area is like Wisconsin with an ocean. Cathy is from Massachusetts and is happy to reside in her grandfather's home state. We are now retired, having had careers in education and nonprofit organizations. We thoroughly enjoy sharing our well-maintained home with family, friends and new guests.

Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport:
We discovered Goose Rocks Beach about 30 years ago when we were vacationing with our kids in Kennebunk. As years went by and we continued exploring up & down the Maine coast, we kept coming back to this wonderful place. We especially enjoy taking long walks on the flat sandy beach. When we decided it was time to have a place at GRB to call our own, we looked for property and designed and built the original post & beam salt box house in 1997. The house was built as a vacation home that we would retire to and is accessible on the first floor.

The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
Our two acre lot is in a quiet residential neighborhood and the house is surrounded by trees. A few years ago, we added a sun room with a large deck overhead, and this one bedroom apartment above our new garage. Friends, family and guests who've stayed in the guest suite/apartment love it, especially couples.
