About the Property
House, 4 Bedrooms, 3 Baths, (Sleeps 8)
House comes with 2 kayaks, 2 SUP (stand up paddle) boards and 2 bikes.
The eat-in kitchen is pine-paneled and, while rustic, has all kitchen appliances and amenities (including garbage disposal). There are four comfortable bedrooms. Two are in the main part of the house: one upstairs with a queen bed and the other on the main floor with a queen bed. Both bedrooms have ensuite bathrooms - one with a claw foot tub and the other with an oversized tiled shower. The other two bedrooms are in a wing off the kitchen, accessed by passage through a 100 year old converted garage, called by us 'the shed' , which functions as a storage room, pantry, laundry, and gallery for interesting historical artifacts from the early 20th century. These bedrooms are pine paneled - one has a bunk bed with a double lower and twin upper bed and the other a double bed. There is a half bath that connects the two rooms and a shower room immediately outside the bedrooms.There is also an outdoor shower with hot water in a private enclosed area off the deck.
There are three lovely places to sit outside - in the courtyard watching the birds play in the birdbath; on the deck off the kitchen eating lunch and watching the golfers hit their approach shots to the first green; or on the 2nd story balcony sipping cocktails while the sun goes down.
Kenneth Roberts (December 8, 1885– July 21, 1957), a native of Maine and best–selling author of such historical novels as “Northwest Passage”, “Arundel”, and “Rabble in Arms”, built Blue Roof in 1924. It was fashioned from the timbers of a nearby barn. Roberts designed it with the help of three friends, one his mentor, the novelist Booth Tarkington (“Penrod”), who summered in Kennebunkport.
Keywords: Former residence of Maine author Kenneth Roberts, located on the first fairway of the Webhannet Golf Course and minutes by foot (two blocks) to the beach. The sound of the breakers on the beach can be heard, especially after dark

About the owner: The three above siblings own Blue Roof which has been in their family for 4 generations. As children, they learned how to swim and play golf there and used the house for assignations when in college. Over the past 30 years their own children have enjoyed the house but are now blown like leaves across the country, making Blue Roof available for sharing with renters.
