Why My Place is so Special
Calling our mile long sandy beach one of the finest anywhere is not an overstatement and perhaps the best part of this expansive beautiful beach is its privacy.
Crescent Surf Beach is grounded at one end by a turn-of-the century, enormous cottage built by my great-grandfather and at the other by Rachel Carson. Beyond the nesting birds there, warmer waters of Little River head to the sea twice daily, creating a Fishermen's haven.
It takes but five minutes walking from the Beautiful Farm to reach Crescent Surf Beach, on a private dirt road topped with beautiful huge pines and oaks.
Your twenty-acre farm is a unique treasure. It includes generations old apple orchard, gently rolling fields with colorful wild flowers, an ever changing tidal marsh, amazing oak, maple and high white pine.
Your house is so filled with light that the professional photographer who took the shots for VRBO said, 'This is the only place where I've never had to turn on lights to do a shoot.' The furniture is mostly new, attractive and comfortable. Enjoy the many works of museum quality, original art and art objects.
With huge decks,and windows, your architect brought the outdoors in. From the front you can see all the JULY 4th FIREWORKS from all the Kennebunks.
The Beautiful Farm is divided into two parts. There are 3 bedrooms in the main part, the downstairs master bedroom with bath and two upstairs with one bath. The open living area features many large windows with views of rolling fields, marsh, some ocean and great sunrises. The just painted and appointed colorful kitchen adjoins the dining area.
Through a breezeway, and into the other part, four friends or additional family have their own space with two large bedrooms. The upstairs Ocean Bedroom has a gorgeous view of the ocean and the other, the Wood Bedroom has mesmerizing views of hummingbirds, fields and forest. Have coffee in bed and watch the birds. The Pool House has its own bathroom, breakfast nook plus a colorful sun room where you feel you are outdoors...and from it, you go right to the pool. The sunroom is ideal for small children to play and grandparents to be present on the comfortable couch.
A mowed area on a flat field adjacent to the west side of the house is ideal for outdoor games.
The in-ground 18 by 30 foot pool, under full sun, provides for real swimming and refreshing dips. It is 9' deep at one end and 3' at the other. An optional solar cover keeps the water several degrees warmer than normal. A hot and cold water shower is adjacent.
When leaving your nature paradise, you're only 2 miles to the fantastic resort town of Kennebunkport, 10 to Ogunquit and 40 to L.L.Bean and Freeport's outlet stores.
Quiet is ubiquitous. No neighbors in sight. The nearest paved road, Route 9, is so far away little traffic can be heard; you only hear surf and geese. Maybe you’ll spot the moose in the marsh, see photo. Nature, the beach and ocean, the pool, wildlife, wild flowers, the delights of summer await you at competitive pricing. Book now.
Keywords: Two beautiful private beaches. From on a 30 foot hill in your architect designed home, enjoy the best New England offers: acres of nature that would captivate Thoreau himself, along with the great Atlantic Ocean. Every one will love the large, in-ground pool. The water pump works 24/7 to maintain cleanliness. Lounge outdoors on three decks: one screened in, one on the East and one on the West. One is always perfect.
Outdoor activities abound: walk alone or with your dog on the beach or on the many trails; bird-watch; take nature photographs; kayak from nearby dock on the Mousam River or from the beach; fish for stripped bass at three locations; cycle private roads and star gaze into dark skies.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Year Purchased: 1890
About the owner: Lived in and Love the USA, Canada, Mexico, Spain and Portugal.
Why the Owner Chose Kennebunk, ME, USA:
My mother's ancestors moved here from Alfred, Maine, back in 1890, to be on the ocean. It is said these two beaches comprise the longest stretch of 'undeveloped' shoreline on the East Coast. Crescent Surf is so isolated, the U.S. Military stationed troops here during W.W.II., and once they scared my mother once when she came out of the water. I moved here in 1978 with my two boys after I inherited the Farm with its twenty acres from my mother, Helen Parsons. I wanted my children to enjoy the wonders of country living and be able to attend the excellent schools of Kennebunk. The Kennebunks have excellent activities for children, including the K.B.I.A. at Kennebunk Beach.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Col. Hart received all the lands between Little River and Great Hill as an acknowledgment of his contribution to the War of Independence. He chose the hill where my house sits for his home site, farmed the fields and hayed the marsh. You can know you frequented the same beach as George W.H.Bush and Cole Porter. George during the last few years of his administration when he jogged it during the off season and Cole while he and my cousin were roommates at university and vacationed at my Aunt's. Walk a labyrinth....draw one at low tide and enjoy.
