About the Property
three bedroom, two bathroom, and a walk to the harbor and downtow
When you come to my house I want you to feel , well, happy! Its a modest home, built in 1903 by the city's first optometrist. There is a nice design to the place, high ceilings , carpenter's details and handpainted decorative walls. I'm always working to improve the gardens. There's a big tree that shades the house in the summer. The yard is fenced and hedged. It's nice and simple..
There's a barn in the back which has my yard tools and a studio.
When you're ready to book, here are some tips to keep in mind.

Why the Owner Chose Rockland, ME, USA:
My house will surprise you in a good way... I bought the house thirty years ago and have been working on it to bring it to modern efficiency and ease but to preserve the old feeling of the 1900's in Maine. Rockland is the first small city in the Penobscot Bay. So beautiful. I like that I can see the water from my street and that I can hear fog horns in a storm.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
The yard is hedged and fenced but is not sufficient to hold in a dog . It's quite private but you still are a few blocks from downtown, festivals, Main St. and the harbor.
