A classic Maine waterfront home with graceful elms and expansive lawn sloping down to its own beach. Watch boats come in and out of Castine Harbor from its sunporch and deck. This gracious and welcoming home is located close to the village center. An easy two-block stroll gets you to Main Street and the quaint shops, restaurants and town dock that make up the village of Castine. The house sits on the water side of lovely Perkins Street, lined with towering elms and classic 19th Century seacoast homes.
The home has been loved and cared for by five generations of the same family for over fifty years. Four bedrooms and two bathrooms upstairs all overlook the water. On the first floor there is a glassed-in sitting porch, connected to a new deck for outdoor relaxation, as well as the dining room with picture windows, and a cozy kitchen. The "library", a quieter space with fireplace, provides for evening conversation or TV. There is also a half-bath downstairs.
Its beautiful sand beach, rare for the rocky coast of Maine, is yours to enjoy for swimming, beach combing, or launching your kayaks. The open backyard lawn overlooking the water has, for decades, been home to all manner of sports and games.
The house is equipped with WiFi and cable TV. Linens and towels are provided.
