Harpswell Center cottage description

This property is on the tip of Basin Point in Harpswell Maine. This Casco Bay Victorian is as classic as you can get. Built in 1912 it has remained in the same family from generation to generation. There are many aspects of the property that is still original. Such as the bathroom with the claw foot tub and pull chain toilet. The copper hot water tank remains (only for looks) as well. The view to the south is of halfway rock, Eagle island and the home of Admiral Perry. The home still has its original slate roof and wraparound porch where you will enjoy family gatherings and return year after year. The views of the sunsets are breathtaking. Inside you will feel the history as you enter the original kitchen that has a Kenmore electric range with a gas heater attached on top. The dining room has ample seating and antiques as well as the large living-room. Downstairs are two bedrooms with a bathroom between them. Upstairs has 3 more bedrooms and a full bath. Throughout the house are beautiful wood ceilings and many walls and built in shelves and storage. There is also a water-view from every room in the house. You are located next to the Dolphin Marina and Restaurant as well as Erica's Seafood where you can get fresh lobster to cook back the the house. There is plenty of land to explore as well as having water access where you can kayak around the nearby islands. You can rent a boat slip at the marina next door if you need. Dogs are excepted at this property. There was a stair case added to the west side of the peninsula. This allows access to a tidal beach area with Maine Coastal Sand. This allows more privacy for your family with gorgeous views of lobster boats, soaring eagles and Whale Boat island.
