Year Purchased: 2005
About the owner: It has always been a dream of mine to purchase and renovate a home. Paul and I are Connecticut Yankees who adore the Maine coast. In 2005, we found this small cottage in West Bath. While Paul immediately zeroed in on all the work that needed to be done – and it was extensive, I simply looked dreamily at the water view. Location, location, location! Built in 1940 on posts, the 'camp' was beginning to sink into the ground and was lop-sided. The cottage had to be raised hydraulically and placed on what looked like Lincoln logs while a cement basement was built below to support the structure. The original home was literally gutted – only one exterior wall was left standing while we went to work to rebuild the cottage. It was important for me to maintain the original look and feel of the cottage so that it remained integrated into the surroundings. After much blood, sweat and tears… (and did I mention money?...way over budget!), we completed the bulk of the renovations. Each year we select additional projects that we hope to complete to further enhance the charm of this little cottage. Almost every item in the cottage has “a story” and a connection to our experience in Maine. It is truly a joy to share our “little slice of heaven” with folks from all over the world.
Why the Owner Chose Sabino, West Bath, ME, USA:
West Bath is located on the Maine coast between Brunswick and Bath, approximately 35 miles north of Portland on Route 1. With the New Meadows River on one side and Casco Bay on the other, West Bath enjoys its coastal character. It is a place of delightful surprises, such as the small, private coves that curl into its salt marshes and sloping fields. Some of the region's loveliest homes rest there at the crests of those fields, overlooking the bay on their doorstep. Easy drive to Portland, Rockland, Freeport, and Boothbay.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
This property is perfect for couples looking for the laid back feel of Maine living. Although the cottage maintains its original Maine-charm, the interior has been totally renovated and offers many updates and amenities. Within a 10 minute drive you will be able to enjoy shopping in Bath and tasting the freshest seafood Maine has to offer. Bath is known as “Maine’s Cool Little City” - big enough to be a commercial and cultural hub and compact enough to be intimate and walkable, Bath is vibrant, friendly, and a Maine visitor’s paradise. The compact downtown district of the “City of Ships” has lovingly preserved 19th century architecture lining pedestrian-friendly Front and Centre Streets…a hold over from the days of the Tall Ships, and the perfect place for an afternoon of browsing downtown’s many shops, boutiques, galleries, and restaurants. Just a couple of miles downriver is the Maine Maritime Museum, ranked one of the “Ten Best” maritime museums in the world. From its vantage point along the Kennebec River at the head of the Phippsburg and Georgetown peninsulas, Bath is also a great central location for enjoying a day at the beach, hiking trails, fishing or deep-water sailing. Easy drive to Portland, Rockland, Freeport, and Boothbay.
