Seabiscuit is located in what many people refer to as the most extraordinary neighborhood in Kennebunkport. One block off of Ocean Avenue, 2-3 blocks to Walker's Point, President & Mrs. Bush's home , and is surrounded by multimillion dollar homes. There are ocean views from the large, sunny deck and you are able to listen to the ocean crashing on the rocky Maine shore at night, Seabiscuit is fully winterized and because it is south facing, it is drenched in year round sunlight.
The heart of this wonderful home, the Great Room, has high, beamed ceilings, a super stone fireplace, large flat screen TV, large sectional sofa and Ralph Lauren easy chairs for real relaxation time. Beautifully furnished indoors and out, with superb outdoor deck furniture, the environment is pet and family friendly and has a terrific back yard for play.
The first floor also features a gorgeous teak dining table with upholstered antique chairs, fully outfitted kitchen, spectacular living room with Ralph Lauren sofa (perfect for chatting and reading), a big playroom for the kids and a beautiful powder room with exquisite marble.
The second floor has a super, large master bedroom with four poster bed and bath with shower, along with two other family bedrooms and bath with tub & shower. The master bedroom is spacious enough to easily accommodate a portable crib if necessary.
The amazing part of this classic colonial is that it has a full third floor with two large bedrooms and bath. Kids love to hang out here!
Quite simply, the neighborhood is fantastic! Made for running & walking on Ocean Avenue and biking, the Colony Hotel and Beach is just two blocks away, as well as the Breakwater Inn & Spa, The Nonantum, Inn & Restaurant, Edge water Inn, Mabel's Restaurant, St. Ann's Church and the newly refurbished Cape Arundel Inn & Restaurant There are so many restaurants within walking distance that you just may not cook your entire stay. We always walk to the art and crafts fairs at the River Club and the Silas Perkins Park every summer. Dock Square is also within walking distance, approximately 1 1/2 miles.
Our home isn't a 'stripped down' rental; it is our beloved 'Seabiscuit' and it is charming! We are children and dog lovers and welcome them.

Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport: My husband's family has been coming to Kennebunkport for over 40 years. There is something about this area that does get into your soul! We wanted a home between The Colony Hotel and Walker's Point, President & Mrs. Bush's home, because this neighborhood is the best of everything-fabulous homes, not too busy, great for relaxing and star gazing and ocean views!
The Unique Benefits at this Chateau / Country House: The Great Room in Seabiscuit and the outdoor deck are absolutely amazing and we are crazy about this house in this neighborhood.
