About the Property

5 bedrooms, 3 baths, pristine property, water views, extremely secluded.

Why My Place is so Special

The Farm provides the ideal vacation spot for two or three generation families. The house is divided into two parts, allowing plenty of together time and space for privacy when wanted. There are 3 bedrooms in the main part, the downstairs master bedroom with ensúitte bath and two bedrooms upstairs with one bath off the hallway. All five bedrooms have air conditioning and /or very good fans.

Through a breezeway that contains the laundry machine, four friends or additional family have their own space, called, The Pool House. The large upstairs Ocean Bedroom with sitting area has a gorgeous view of the ocean. The downstairs Wood Bedroom with sitting area 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 with nine windows where you feel you are outdoors. The sunroom is ideal for small children to play and it has a couch for adults to watch from. From it, occupants of the Pool House have their own door to the pool area.

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. Plenty of seating and lounge chairs provide all ages with something to enjoy together.

The main part of the 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 for all ages. Enjoy the many original artworks of museum quality. The big open living area, with seating for ten people, has large windows with great views of rolling fields, marsh, some ocean and great sunrises. The just painted and appointed colorful kitchen adjoins the dining area.

With huge decks and windows, your architect brought the outdoors in. You can see all the JULY 4th FIREWORKS from the Kennebunks. The screened in deck is perfect for eating at anytime. A new, large barbecue is handy. We apply environment friendly insect spray on the lawns. Your next door neighbor will be Rachel Carson!

The most outstanding part of your familie's visit to the Farm is experiencing its beach, Crescent Surf. It takes five minutes of normal walking to reach private Crescent Surf, walking on a private dirt road covered with huge pines and oaks. We supply a red wagon to haul beach items.

The mile-long beach is very flat and at low tide, the ocean retreats a long way. During it's way in, the warm sand heats up the water, making it acceptable to almost everyone. Little children will spend hours in the tidal pools by the rocks. Older ones can play frisbee. Dogs are allowed on leashes at all times, and can run free if they are not disturbing anyone. Adults can relax in beach chairs and read.

When you wish to leave your "nature" paradise, you're only 2 miles to Kennebunkport!

The owner lives three miles away in Kennebunk and can usually supply helpers for any need immediately. The Farm is cleaned by professional cleaners who do not work on weekends. Our in/out days are Fridays.

The summer charms of ocean and get-togethers await your family at the Farm with 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.

Owner info

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.
