Located on the eastern end of Beach Avenue just one mile south of quaint downtown Kennebunkport, this high-end oceanfront property sits in an upscale neighborhood with an oceanfront location on Gooch's Beach.
Built in 1911, this well-appointed home has been beautifully renovated with the vacationing family in mind, offering an abundance of New England charm with the convenience of modern amenities.
With hardwood floors, classic and refined furnishings, and large windows that frame the ocean, the central living space is bright and welcoming. Gather for pleasant conversation in the two sitting rooms, both with expansive windows and brand new furniture. A beautiful wet bar with granite countertops and a wine fridge allows guests to taste different wines, cheeses, and fresh oysters.
Move into the spacious, gourmet-inspired kitchen to find additional granite counterspace, a collection of modern appliances, and a beautiful wall of exposed brick. Wake up each morning to freshly ground and brewed coffee, and make fresh lobster in the all-important lobster pot. The formal dining area offers seating for 10, while the spacious front porch equipped with rocking chairs is perfect for coffee, dessert, cocktails or just relaxing to the sound of the waves.
After long days of sunbathing, kayaking, and combing the nearby beaches for sand dollars, head downstairs to the media room. Roku equipped so you can watch all the movie channels you have at home: Netflix, HBOgo, Showtime, and many others. Challenge your friends to a video game on the XBox 360, or put the big game on the widescreen TV. And there's no need to compromise your cable preferences - there are four more TVs, as well as WiFi, to enjoy!
With five bedrooms, four full bathrooms, and one half-bath, the Beach House at Kennebunk can sleep 12-14 people. There is a large bedroom in the lower level, with two twin beds. There is also a full size sleeper sofa and a full bathroom, perfect for kids or young adults to share.

Beloved in Maine and beyond for its historic architecture, beautiful country roads, and stunning sandy beaches, Kennebunk is an ideal destination for families in search of a quaint New England experience. Build sandcastles at Gooch's Beach just across the street, or simply walk a few blocks on Beach Avenue to reach the playground and tide pools at Mother's Beach.
The KBIA (Kennebunk Beach Improvement Association) is just a short walk away and offers family-friendly recreation for all ages, such as movie nights, family sailing and kayaking, and Wednesday night beach barbecues (membership is required and open to the public). During the summer, guests can also curl up in the sitting area to watch fireworks light up the water!
Get out on the water for a day of deep-sea fishing, wander through the shops of nearby Kennebunkport, or visit one of the historic lighthouses.
