About the owner: Ann and I have lived in this beautiful spot for the last 16yrs. We are semi-retired, Ann an avid gardener and me an avid putterer. Previous to this we lived on boats in San Francisco. Rockland has matured from strictly a fishing town to one that emphasizes the arts and culinary delights.We know you will love it.
Why the Owner Chose Rockland: This location is perfect with equal north and south coastal access making it a great base to travel to other areas of Maine.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment: This property when first seen by us was a disaster. But I being a house renovator and yacht carpenter could see the wonderful possibilities. After 2 years of day in and day out work the old house is now a jewel by the harbor. No prettier spot in the world.
