Property description

Warm and sunlit house overlooking sailboats in the Harraseeket harbor. A cozy 4 bedroom home surrounded by fruit trees, roses and blueberries, and also includes a small greenhouse and tree house.

If you like a quiet and peaceful setting, near unlimited adventures in all directions, this is the place for you.

It is situated on an acre of land with 200 feet of frontage, in a small and quiet neighborhood. There is no swimming here, but we are just a short drive from magnificent beaches a state parks. Were's also just two miles from Freeport's village area and L.L. Bean, one mile from a lobster pound where you can order lobster dinners ready for pickup in a half hour and fifteen minutes from one of America's great little cities, Portland, where you'll find an extraordinary array of restaurants and arts, shopping, boat trips and excursions.

We are a three hour drive up the coast from Acadia National Park, which is the most-visited park east of the Mississippi River. To the west are mountains and lakes. The coastline is full of long peninsulas that seem captured in time, with many small towns and special places.

The house has high-speed internet connections and a small theater room with cable television shown on a projection screen (10 foot screen). It also has an advanced digital piano and wireless network.
