Overview

About the property

4 bed, 1 full, 1 shower and 1 half bath, sleeps 12

Renovated just 5 years ago with an addition that includes a two car garage and a library room that has a wall to wall bookshelf, a gas fireplace, a flat screen TV and leather furniture. There is a separate living room with two sleep sofa beds and another fire place, a fold down table to enjoy cards and board games or to use for additional eating space. There is a spacious, fully appointed, eat in kitchen with refrigerator/freezer, dishwasher, microwave, coffee maker, stove, all the pots and pans, silver and dishware you would need. Or if you are like us, you might prefer to be outdoors and use the oversized deck off the kitchen to eat your grilled food fresh off the gas grill and to crack all your lobster claws and eat your clam chowder. There are 4 bedrooms, two on the main floor with full size beds and two above them equipped with bunk beds and a separate single in each. There is a toilet, full sized bath and shower combo, with a washer and dryer in the downstairs bathroom and an enclosed shower, toilet and pedestal sink on the second level. There is an outside shower to clean off the sand that you collected from the beach that’s only a five minute walk away.

The house location is situated in the middle of the Long Sands Beach area, close to the public restrooms to the left and the Sun and Surf restaurant to the right, where you might be interested in a lunch break of fried clams or simply a taste of your favorite flavor ice cream cone. Whether you enjoy surfing, sunning or simply walking on the beach, there is no better location. Close enough to walk and to hear the waves, but set back enough for privacy from the beach noise and the hustle and bustle of the beachfront.

There are amusements and parks, hiking and horseback riding, boating and fishing, antiquing and outlet shopping in the surrounding area and all only an hours drive from Boston.

About Stephen Guy

We currently reside in Woburn MA with our Boxer dog, Liberty. Kathy and I grew up only a town apart and we each spent many summers with our families on the same Long Sands Beach in York, yet never ran into each other that we are aware of. Kathy is a hard working R.N. and I've been helping people make sense of their finances for 32 years.

Stephen Guy purchased this house in 2013

Why Stephen Guy chose Southern Coast

Kathleen and I bought this property from her mother's estate this past October (2013) in order to keep this treasure of a property in the family.This gem has been in her family for generations and has grown from a small log cabin with an outhouse, to a year round retirement home complete with a two car garage. We hope to provide this property for rent for the next 10 years and then perhaps will retire there ourselves as her parents did.

What makes this house unique

This is more of a home than a summer home. You will find it extremely comfortable and inviting. The large deck out back and farmers porch out front make the outdoors as comfortable as indoors.

Great vacation in York Maine.

  • 5 of 5

This was a great house to stay in. We usually stay in a hotel and are cramped with our almost adult children. This was roomy, comfy and private. Being able to take our dog was great too. House is nice and neat and well taken care of. Love that we can walk to beach but are just far enough away from the traffic and day noise. We will definitely stay here again!
