Year Purchased: 1983
About the owner: I have lived in many places and have traveled to great spots...but this beautiful tranquil place on the shore line of Maine means home to me. I love cooking, great books, drinking cups of coffee sitting outside and amazing restaurants. I am the youngest of 6 children - our families are all spread out across the United States...but we all get together in Maine for the most memorable of times.
Why the Owner Chose Lamoine, ME, USA:
This spot has always been home. We moved a lot growing up but our parents were both from Maine and every year we came back to Maine. At first, we would stay in Lamoine with our Great Aunt Eunice in a farmhouse that still exists to this day. Eventually my parents bought a cottage on the shore right next to this property. And we would stay there every summer. When our neighbors cottage came up for sale they bought that one too and began to make plans for their retirement home. They began designing and building their dream retirement home in the '80's. The home was finished and my father retired. But a fatal heart attack prevented him from ever living there. My Mother lived there year round for the rest of her life, refusing to leave this magnificent spot until health issues forced her to move into permanent care.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
All you have to do is see the view and smell the air and you will understand why this property means so much to our family.
