About the property

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom beach house, walk to beach

4 bedroom, 2 bathroom beach home nestled in a quiet family neighborhood on a dead-end street. Conveniently located 1/4 mile from the beach. The house has old world charm with a mix of modern conveniences. Huge living-room and kitchen/dining area. The master bedroom has vaulted ceilings, and gives out onto a large deck for evening sitting or morning sunrises with your coffee. Close enough to the sea for the waves to rock you to sleep at night, and the smell of the ocean to wake you up in the morning. On Thursday nights, you can sit on the deck and enjoy the Old Orchard Beach fireworks! This house is guaranteed to please, and give you memories you will never forget. You'll be looking forward to next year before your vacation even ends!

About Ron Darling

My name is Ron Darling. I grew up in South Portland, in an area known as Ferry village. My whole family were fishermen. If you couldn't go by boat, you didn't go! I moves to Old Orchard Beach after I got married, bought this house in 1985, and raised my family there. My kids went to Old Orchard Beach schools. I enjoyed my life at 10 Prospect Street.

Ron Darling purchased this house in 1985

Why Ron Darling chose Southern Coast

This was my first property. I'm a building contractor and I've owned a dozen homes since, but I haven't enjoyed any one as much as I enjoyed 10 Prospect Street, with the sound of the waves and the smell of the beach. Now I am back living in Old Orchard Beach - it's funny how you come full circle! I am a hands-on landlord, I take care of my people. I don't rent to anybody I wouldn't live next door to myself.

What makes this house unique

Huge living-room and kitchen/dining area. Big second-floor deck off master bedroom, you can sit out at night gaze at the stars and listen to the waves crash on the beach. Far enough from downtown to be away from the hustle and bustle, yet close enough to walk to the beach and downtown. Located on a dead-end street, only traffic is you and your guests.

Spacious and confortable house, great location.

  • 5 of 5

The house was perfect for our 9 people group. We called the owner twice for minor problem and got immediate assistance. The large first floor space was appreciated, we could all fit at the table for group meals. The distance from the beach was not too bad and we were happy to be far enough from the train track to not be bothered by it.
