Portsmouth house description

Private and quiet, with room to roam, the Chauncey Creek House is a very special place for all to gather, anytime of the year.

Picturesque Kittery Point is part of Kittery, Maine's oldest and southernmost town. Adjacent to York, it retains the unspoiled charm of a historic fishing village.

The Chauncey Creek House has deeded access to Crescent Beach, just a 5 minute walk away and sits on almost two acres of wooded and naturally landscaped property. It borders the neighboring Rachel Carson Wildlife Refuge, and the only residential neighbor is across the street on the landward side of the house.

Walk the beautiful terrain and safely enjoy a stroll to the beach along Tower Road, a private, low-traffic road in this rural, residential neighborhood.

A total of 6 guests can sleep enjoy the Chauncey Creek House. The three bedrooms are upstairs (two twins beds in one bedroom and a queen bed in each of the other bedrooms) There are 1¾ baths: one full bathroom upstairs with a vanity sink, bath tub with high-end fixtures, and toilet. This bathroom upstairs has two doors- one off the master bedroom and the other off the hallway. The downstairs bathroom has a walk-in shower with high-end fixtures and toilet.

Pets and children are welcomed guests.

The home provides a large grassy fenced in lawn. Please keep your pet on a leash when visiting the beach.

The 2,500 sq. ft home welcomes guests with warm, colorful walls, hardwood floors and inviting comfortable furniture. The home is a modified cape house, with serene views of the tidal water and National Wildlife Refuge.

From each room, large windows offer views of the large pine and oak trees and the quiet waterfront beyond. This is a property that friends and family frequent, so guests will find all the necessary conveniences of home like cookware, utensils, spices, oils and serving bowls and trays to present any small or large meal.

The kitchen's large, open floor plan accommodates those that find themselves gathering in the kitchen, awaiting the next delicious meal. The large windows allow guests to catch sightings of wildlife and watch the ebb of flow of the creek's tide, just steps away.

There is plenty of scenery from any directions when traveling to Chauncey Creek House, along Mine Route 103 and US HWY 1.

It’s a pretty drive that winds past coastal cottages, salt marshes and forested properties. The rock fences and classic New England homes and historic buildings line the road, as it curves and edges past the water, with views of bobbing lobster boats anchored in the harbor.

Guests are welcome to use the canoe and row boat or bring boats. The property has a private floating dock. However, there is not a boat launch on the property.

Sea Point and Crescent Beaches - Sea Point Beach can be accessed at the end of Sea Point Road. Look for the small parking area that marks the entrance to Sea Point Beach. Dogs are allowed on the beach during the day until June 15th. Abide by parking signage-only residents with valid dump stickers are allowed to park at the head of the beach after May 15th. Sea Point's has a 550-yard sandy crescent beach with gentle surf on the north side of a tiny peninsula and is backed by a marsh, providing wonderful bird-watching. Nearby Crescent Beach, also backed by salt marsh, is the 'local' beach, and a great stopping point on a winding bike trip along the coast.

Chauncey Creek Lobster Pier- If you’re looking for an authentic lobster-in-the-rough experience, this is the seafood shack for you. Lobsters, steamers, mussels, and all other sorts of fresh seafood are served atop brightly colored picnic tables on a deck overlooking the creek of the same name. It’s BYOB, and many patrons arrive toting an assortment of accessories to enhance the meal — side dishes, tablecloths, candles, bug spray. The view of the water is what makes this an outdoor dining experience not to miss. With the post office just across the street and the town dock tucked down behind The Captain and Patty’s restaurant, which in turn lies directly behind Enoteca, this truly is the hub of Kittery Point.

On the other side of Chauncey Creek and the house, along Brave Boat Harbor Road, there is the enterance to 1.8 mile loop trail that takes you through the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge.

 

Manager info

Year Purchased: 1990

About: Welcome to Kittery Point! I hope you enjoy it as much as I have, since I first discovered it in 1969. I have been the only owner since 1990. I have lived in and around the New England coast and central Maine for many years. I owned and operated a hydrogeology firm until 2006 and now work as a Senior Associate, Hydrogeologist for SANTEC . When I am not in Maine, hiking or boating, I am either living in Daphne, AL or traveling to Bequia in Grenadines or Switzerland.

Why Portsmouth:
I fell in love with this area many years ago and have many friends in the area that together we enjoy hiking, sailing, and kayaking.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
The location of the property is ideal because of its proximity to outdoor activities and access to tidal water out the back door, the a private dock. I love sharing with others the great hiking, the beaches, and being on the water.
