Freeport house description

We have a cozy home on the coast of Maine, located in South Freeport, with extensive views of tidal Harraseeket harbor, sailboats and a state park across the water. The house is surrounded by fruit trees, roses and blueberries, and also includes a small greenhouse.

It is situated on an acre of land with 200 feet of frontage, in a very quiet area. There is no swimming here, but we are just a few miles form beaches and a local park. We are just two miles for the downtown Freeport and L.L. Bean, one mile from a lobster pound where you can order lobster dinners ready for pickup in a half hour, and fifteen minutes from downtown Portland, which has an extraordinary array of restaurants and arts, boat trips and excursions.

We are just a short drive to two state parks and a three hour drive from the most popular national park in the east of America. To the west are mountains and lakes and the coastline is full of long peninsulas that seem captured in time, with sand beaches and forts and special places known only to the locals (and, of course, our guests).

The house has high-speed internet connections and a small theater room with cable and a projection screen (10 foot screen). It also has an advanced digital piano and wireless network.

                    We have an older, quiet 'outdoor' cat, with her own door. We would like to leave her, if possible, in the house. She requires no care at all because we have systems to feed and water her. ...moreless
