Property description

No home in Kennebunkport matches the comfort and proximity to Dock Square like the John Bourne House c. 1806.

The John Bourne House is perfect for special gatherings with family and friends as in-town excursions don’t require a car. Walk 100 feet and you are on Ocean Avenue/Dock Square with all of its wonderful shops, unique boutiques and delicious restaurants. Hang a left at the end of the street and you are walking along Ocean Avenue on the water towards Walker’s Point (the Bush family compound).

Kitchen features warm cherry cabinetry with Sub Zero refrigerator, Thermador gas burners and double ovens – more than enough firepower for any lobster broil.

Main House has a comfortable three seasons screened room that is ideal for relaxing or watching television.

The Main House and Guest Cottage are equipped with Time Warner Cable, whole house DVR, with flat screen televisions (Sony Bravia) located in the Main House, sun room, family room, guest room and master bedroom as well as in the Guest Cottage.

The Main House also features Time Warner’s fastest wireless internet service and wireless is accessible throughout house and guest cottage. The Main House is equipped with a wireless Air Print-enabled printer that allows printing from laptops or directly from Apple devices.

In the Main House the bedrooms are arranged as follows:

- Master Bedroom with King size bed, walk-in closet, full bathroom and flat screen television
- Guest Bedroom with King size bed, with full bathroom (w/tub) adjacent in hallway
- Guest Bedroom with two full sized beds, en suite bathroom (shower) and flat screen television
- Bonus Room Bedroom Size 20x20 with crib and aerobed. Perfect for children as it is connected to the master bedroom and is accessible either through master closet or the garage stair.

The property also has a separate Guest Cottage that has:
- a pull out sofa with a small kitchen area, a full bathroom (shower) and flat screen television;
- a loft space with two single beds; and
- a porch with seating area

Car: Recommended

The heart of the town of Kennebunkport is Dock Square, 1 block from the house. Marinas, The Jetty and Colony Beach are located a short stroll along Ocean Avenue. David's Restaurant and Bar is half a block from the house. The Village Green, Fishing Charters, Schooner Ship Cruises, Power Boat and Kayak Rentals, Dining, Shopping, Art Galleries and of course the Horse and Carriage Rides are also all 1 block from the house.

Year Purchased: 2014

Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport, Kennebunkport, ME, USA:
We fell in love with Kennebunkport and find it to be a fantastic place to create memories with children or adults. This house gives you the comforts of home with the proximity to all that the town has to offer.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It just doesn't get any closer to town than this historic renovated home with unique separate guest cottage for ultimate privacy. Walk to dinner every night. Grab some ice cream. Take a carriage ride through the historic town. All of these amenities are just steps away.
