Year Purchased: 1996
About the owner: In 1996, our beloved mother and grandmother retired from her job as a public school teacher in Boston and moved to York Beach. When she bought this house, it had been neglected for years and was in a very sad state. It was definitely a labor of love, but after months and months of hard work, we helped her to turn it back into the wonderful, charming home it is today. Unfortunately, we lost Sarah in January 2015, but we as a family have taken on the property and are devoted to making sure it is kept up to her fabulous standards!
Why the Owner Chose York Beach, York, ME, USA:
Taking old, run down homes and bringing them back to life is a passion that runs in the family. Many people thought Sarah was crazy for buying this house in its dilapidated state, but we saw the potential, and after months and months of hard work, the house was restored to its natural beauty. Sarah loved to garden and took great pride in her beautiful landscaping. The whole family gets involved in caring for the big yard and gardens, making sure it is ready for our guests to enjoy.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This is a unique house with lots of historic charm, but updated amenities. It has a private porch overlooking a beautiful garden- perfect for a barbecue! At night, the lights of the amusement park light up next door and you can watch the ferris wheel spin. The location can't be beat as the shops, restaurants, arcade, and beach are just steps away. Being just a 3-5 minute walk to Short Sands Beach is truly a luxury when considering the cost and limited availability of parking.
