South Thomaston house description

SummersPort is the perfect combination of old and new and South Thomaston provides a beautiful setting. This 1857 farmhouse was lovingly restored to retain its charm but made modern and expansive. The previous owner, an antiques dealer, carefully selected antique and beautiful new materials to create a unique home that feels both intimate and dramatic. The original side of the house contains the updated kitchen, a quiet room, 2 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and a laundry room. The new side of the house looks like a converted barn and contains a giant great room, bath (adjacent to outside shower) and the upstairs master bedroom. The bedroom, like the great room, has high ceilings which accommodate two ladder-entry loft spaces. The master bath is large and a small covered porch extends off the bedroom. Views from most rooms in the house overlook water and the beautifully landscaped acre and a half.


The property has lots of decks, tables, chairs, flowers and umbrellas for enjoying the outdoors.
The property has a dock with upper deck for dining and lower deck for swimming or kayak launching.
The village has a public boat launch.
The yard is a relatively flat, grassed acre for playing games or having picnics.
The house contains a small workout room with treadmill, recumbant bike, free weights, jump rope.

                      The SummersPort house sits on the mouth of the Weskeag River in the authentic lobstering village of South Thomaston, Maine. Businesses in the village and nearby include galleries, gift-shops, a general store/deli and great places to eat fresh-caught lobster dinner right on the dock. A short drive away are beautiful beaches, a lighthouse, a museum and a winery and a brand-new Equestrian center, Pepper Hill Farm.

                      As you drive out of the village, there's a lot of Maine to explore in all directions. A drive south will lead you onto the St George Peninsula where you'll find quaint villages, a lighthouse, kayak tours or the mail boat to Monhegan Island where you can spend a day hiking or visiting art studios.

                      Five miles after you leave the house headed north, you'll discover Rockland, the largest city in the region and a burgeoning center for the arts. It's charming downtown district is filled with art galleries, museums and shops. You'll also find great restaurants, windjammer tours and island ferries. The town also has a couple large supermarkets, movie theaters and two golf courses.

                      North of South Thomaston are the quintessentially pretty New England villages of Rockport and Camden. In Rockport visit the Maine Contemporary Art Museum or Aldemere Farm. The village of Camden is known for its boutiques, restaurants, inns, small hotels and gift shops. A hike in the Camden Hills State Park, just two miles north of town, or a drive up the Mt. Battie Road for a bird's-eye view of the Camden Harbor, is a great way to spend a day.

                      Whether you spend your time in South Thomaston at the house (working out, swimming, kayaking, barbequing or just relaxing) or if you decide to get in a car and go exploring you'll enjoy every minute of your time in Maine. It is after all... 'Vacation land'.
