                              About: I am a theatrical lighting designer and divide my time, between New York and Kennebunkport. Gooch's Beach and the Colony Beach are my favorites, where I go to recharge by the ocean and swim. I also love sitting on the rocks on the point. I am a good cook, so the kitchen has a good supply of pots and utensils.

                              Why Kennebunkport:
                              I've spent at least part of every summer of my life, in this house. I love eating all my meals on the front porch and watching the boats go by. The house is perfectly located between the town center and the ocean and beaches. My parents bought this property, once owned by Abbott Graves, because of our family history with Kennebunkport and the Seashore Company, which was formed to buy the Arundel Point and sell lots for summer cottages and hotels. My great-grandfather, John Townsend Trowbridge, built the first house on the Point.

                              The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                              The front porch views of the river, are partially protected by lilac bushes, allowing a full view of the river traffic and some privacy. It's great to sit out there, dine, read, cook-out, grill, entertain, etc. (new 3 burner gas grill) and watch the sun set.
