This breezy cottage for sale in Northport, Maine defines elegant coastal living. Built in 1880, the dwelling overlooks Penobscot Bay from its ocean-facing floor-to-ceiling windows. Though it’s set back from the water’s edge, the home’s sweeping panoramas of the sea mimic the feeling of being on a boat (tasteful nautical accents included).

The living area boasts built-in shelving and a wood stove, and around the corner, the kitchen offers an oven with a hood and a large farmhouse sink. Outside, steps from the deck lead to a beach below, where you can swim, kayak, or simply take it all in.
