About Sean Mercer-Smith
My father's family went to York Beach for summers for over 50 years. I grew up and still live in Nebraska but both sides of my family are from the East coast and most still reside in New England. We have enjoyed visiting the beach and reuniting with family at the house since we bought it and even before that. Now we use it as a good excuse to travel East and a comfortable place to have family and friends.
Sean Mercer-Smith purchased this house in 2010
Why Sean Mercer-Smith chose Cape Neddick
My father's words: My family started going to York when I was 4 years old. I spent many summers in York: surfing and working at the Oceanside Store. What surprised me is that my wife, Delinda, wanted us to return there, eventually to retire. I have a photo of Nubble Light and a rainbow that I took from the deck. Everytime I look at that photo, I think of Wordsworth: MY heart leaps up when I behold A rainbow in the sky: So was it when my life began, So is it now I am a man, So be it when I shall grow old 5 Or let me die! The child is father of the man: And I could wish my days to be Bound each to each by natural piety. Above you can see a rainbow that Alyssa DiRubbo took that was even better than mine! Edward Weston described his career in photography as his love affair with light. Every time I go back, Weston, also, comes to mind. Each time, I see something different, sometimes new. Even as I do my DIY homeowner things, sometimes, I will just stop to take in the wonders around me. The changing light, weather, sights, smells, and sounds make our home on the Nubble a multi-sensory delight for those who take the time to partake of them. We hope that you will feel that way, too. We bought this home as it has one of the most spectacular views that I have ever seen! We and some our guests who shared their photos have tried to capture some of that sense of wonder and place. The views are remarkable all year, not just in the summer. We enjoy the fall colors; the Christmas lights on the Nubble; the clean starkness of the snow, the rebirth that is Spring, and the ocean smells and sounds of summer when we open the windows more. Mike Blanchette took some of the shots for our website. What will you shoot?
What makes this house unique
As mentioned, every room has an ocean view, half the rooms have a lighthouse view. There are five levels to allow space together or away. For example, the living room, dining room, and kitchen are open to each other. The dining room has a panoramic ocean view, with the lighthouse on the left. The kitchen has black granite countertops, cherry cabinets, stainless steel appliances, and it is well outfitted to suit most needs of those who cook. There is a five burner gas stove. The appliances are mostly Breville or Cuisinart. There is a separate game/living room with an Xbox One. The first floor sunroom and the deck are other away spaces. In good weather or bad, it is a place to relax and enjoy.
