Why Jim and Linda McConchie chose Spruce Head
Ownership now resides in Trust for a third generation and soon a fourth, ensuring family use for more generations to come. This is a classic Maine cottage, built in the 1950's in that style that has almost disappeared due to the high cost of waterfront land and the McMansions being built as the original cottages disappear. Fifty feet from the water's edge, with a screened porch enabling sitting outside and listening to the ocean, the cottage has been thoroughly updated and modernized, but still captures that era when waterfront cottages were part of nature, not castles to sit in and look out at it. Everything one needs for lobster and clam cookouts on the rocks, barbeques plus a firepit for s'mores, and views across to Clark Island and the open sea. Large windows from the bedrooms on the ocean side offer views unchanged from the day it was built. Watch the lobster boats right out front; kayak from right out front, or just watch the constant activity of the seagulls, seals, osprey, fox, deer, even an occasional moose and a family of eagles. This is the heart and the essence of mid-coast Maine living. 'Maine, the way life ought to be.'
What makes this Cottage unique
This cottage offers a chance to relive the New England and Maine lifestyle from the middle of the last century. Thoroughly modernized, with cable, large Sony TV, internet, WII, Blueray and a charming fireplace and stacks of wood right outside. At the same time, you are a fifteen minute drive away from the towns and villages in the heart of mid-coast Maine.
