Why the Owner Chose Southport: The everchanging view of the ocean and being basically a rocks throw away from the water was a selling point indeed. Also the quiet and serenity that exists here.
If one wishes for seaside shopping. dining and entertainment it is all within a five minute drive.
A perfect 'get away' home
The Unique Benefits at this House: Along with a constant view of the islands and the bay we can go walking for 3 minutes,down to the Historc All Saints Church and spend time at the picnic area and dock available there, or go swimming, boating, kayaking,and see the sights of not only Southport Island but Boothbay as well.
We love to have meals on the deck outside and entertain guests morning to night.
