Property description

This renovated classic 1940’s shingled Maine summer cottage is bright and cheerful throughout--like a page from 'House and Gardens' magazine. Furnishings are in the Maine cottage style, and the gourmet kitchen has been recently updated. First floor has a single bunk bedroom suitable for children and shower bath, second floor has three bedrooms--two with queen size beds and one with twin beds-- and bathroom with a claw foot tub.

Enjoy ocean views through a wall of windows looking out across an open field or from the master bedroom. Open deck off the living room and kitchen is a great place for outdoor dining and for contemplating nature’s beauty. Contemporary fully equipped eat-in kitchen with stunning views into the surrounding 2 acres of woods.

Great place for kids who delight with playing field out-front, 'secret' forts in the woods, and looking for treasures on the rocks and beaches. Steps away from the Juniper Point community house, four clay tennis courts, boat dock and beach. This cottage has heat and a woodburning fireplace, so would be a good choice for the off season (May, June, September, October).

House is ideal for four adults, but will accomodate up to six maximum.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 1999

About the owner: Property is owned by Bill and Lisa Barton. Bill has summered in Boothbay Harbor all his life. Bill is also the past president of the Juniper Point Association, an organization that brings together residents on Juniper and McKown points and maintains the community house, four clay tennis courts, two docks, trails and beach access.

Why the Owner Chose Boothbay Harbor, Boothbay Harbor, ME, USA:
Bill's mother, the artist Nancy Hemenway Barton, was born in Boothbay the summer of 1920. Numerous family members have summer homes on Juniper Point and its been the much loved gathering spot for countless summers. Purchased the house in 1999 so that our children--we have six in all--would have a place to come with their spouses and children.

The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Summer in Maine is about the outdoors for us, whether it be boating, tennis, hiking, kayaking, paddle boarding, swimming off the dock, or just relaxing in a family atmosphere. Bill's brother's both have houses nearby as do several cousins, so there is lots of movement between the cottages, picnics and fun multi-generational outings to nearby islands, beaches, or to town. The whole community retains a friendly, low key atmosphere that is welcoming yet not intrusive.
