About the Property
House, 5 Bedrooms, 2.5 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
This colonial home overlooking picturesque Castine harbor was built in 1790, and has been owned by the same family for the past 60 years. The home is well-maintained, with modernized kitchen and bathrooms, yet retains its colonial charm. The rooms are spacious, with high ceilings, moldings, and wainscoting. Two staircases access the second floor; one is a grand staircase with spindles and carvings.
There is a bedroom with 2 twin beds and a full bath on the first floor, perfect for those who don't like stairs.
The property is located on a half-acre lot, with an expansive lawn sloping toward the harbor and large elm trees. The home is ideally situated in the central historic district, only one minute's walking distance to Castine's dock where you can watch all the harbor activities while eating an ice cream cone or lobster roll. All restaurants, art galleries, shops, a grocery market,library, museums, churches, Maine Maritime Academy,golf course are within 1-5 minutes' walk.
