Set on 2.55 acres overlooking the quiet waves of Maine’s York Harbor, this white-clapboard residence comes with just about everything we’d want in a home right now: scenic surroundings, a sense of tranquility, and a hefty dose of fun.
Built in 1991 but renovated in 2015, the house is all about unobstructed water views and open-concept, contemporary style. In the kitchen—which features a roomy walk-in pantry, a wine refrigerator, and a center island—prep your sourdough starter on sleek quartz countertops, surrounded by custom maple cabinetry. Then step down to the adjacent living and dining area to cozy up by the gas-powered hearth, just one of two fireplaces in the home. Down at the end of the first floor hall, past a second, more relaxed sitting room, lies the master bedroom. While the sizable suite features high ceilings, plush wool carpeting, and large windows that spill in sunlight, the hideaway’s most showstopping feature is actually its enormous dressing room, which offers enough shoe, clothing, and accessory storage to rival any small boutique.
Outside, the property is just as impressive. The views and amenities feel resort-like—but with the added bonus of peace and privacy. Surrounded by hydrangeas, evergreens, and sea grass, a wooden deck offers access to a saltwater pool, a fire pit, a grill area, and plenty of space for lounging. Just lay out on the deck, watch the boats sail on by, and breathe out a big sigh as the rest of world melts away.
