About the owner: Originally from San Francisco, we moved to the Camden area for a few years then had to transfer for husbands work. Our kids went to school here for a few years and we fell in love. Moving to Houston, we kept this home because we love it and the area so much!!! A VERY special place.
Why the Owner Chose Rockport, ME, USA:
We loved the views and the history of this home. It is called Diamond Hill and built in 1870. We remodeled some areas for updates, but kept the historic portions. This home is perfect, lots of room for everyone to have space, entertain and an awesome garden, lawn and deck!!! Cant beat the location, central to do anything. My favorite is my morning walk around Beauchamp Point and walking along the rocky oceans edge and hearing the sail boats rocking in the harbor. Piece of heaven.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Location, locatoin, location. We are right on the Camden boarder so we are close to Camden, so still in the thick of it all, but quieter location from all of the tourists. Benefit of great food, shopping, acitivities close by, and you feel like you are miles away at this oasis on the hill, but still walking distance. Camden is central to everything, Portland is south, Booth Bay is a close drive, Rockland/Owlshead, Belfast, Northport, Acadia Nationa Park, Camden Hills....so much to do and explore, but most guests get lulled into the house and its charms and just relax - best lobster roll walk around the corner!
