Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: Hi - My Name is Bill Nieuwkerk. I grew up on Paddy's Creek, just 3 minutes from our newly purchased home. My Wife, Debbie and I live in Pennsylvania. I run a technology division for an Italian Aerospace Company, and Debbie is a Registered Nurse. We have 4 Children, all of whom love coming to Cape Porpoise every year.
Why the Owner Chose Kennebunkport, Kennebunkport, ME, USA:
When this house became available, my wife & I jumped at the opportunity. It's a wonderful place to live/vacation. As a boy, my friends & I would frequently sail from Paddy's Creek to Cape Porpoise Harbor or Stage Island for fishing, swimming or camping. Unlike many beaches in Maine where the water is c o l d... Paddy's Creek is swim-able because the sun heats up the dark sand/mud, and when the tide comes in - Presto the water's warm!!! What makes this home so special, is that many of my childhood memories are still alive today. The local store, Bradbury Brothers is still in operation, where we used to load-up on candy, soda & ice cream. The Wayfarer, where we would have great breakfasts is still serving guests after 50+ years!
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
What makes this home special is it's privacy, cozy front porch, access to water. With our 17' sailboat, Kayaks, or skiff w/motor, it's the best way to enjoy all that Cape Porpoise offers (claming, fishing, boating, picnicking & swimming. Our property is next to Land's End Road. This road is great for kids to ride bikes on, and for leisurely strolls to see the breath-taking view of Cape Porpoise Harbor.
