Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: I grew up spending summers in the area and my family eventually moved here in the 1980s. I had always been looking for a place of my own and when I came across Sweetbrier I decided this was it. I love the proximity to town, and being close to the ocean.
Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport, Kennebunkport, ME, USA:
Development of Cape Arundel as a Summer Colony began in the late 1800 by a group called the Kennebunkport Seashore Company. They envisioned parks, hotels and recreational areas to attract vacationers from the Boston area. Sweetbrier Cottage was one of the early summer cottages built in the traditional Victorian Shingle Style that was so popular at that time. The unique architectural elements of the house and simple lines characteristic of the shingle style are appealing inside and out.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Stepping inside the rooms with exposed beams and lengthy spans is a bit like stepping back in time. The house is situated perfectly to catch the cool southwest breezes. The wraparound front porch is ideal to sit, relax and take in the sounds of distant foghorns and the smell of the ocean. With the fully updated kitchen you truly get the comforts of today while reliving what it must have been like 100 years ago on vacation along Maine's southern coast.
