Want a vacation house with options? The possibilities are plentiful with this York, Maine beach house, located right on the shores of Cape Neddick. Set apart from the other houses on the street, the ocean waves practically lap at the front door of this house, which can be used as a year-round residence or summer retreat.
With the water right at your fingertips, you can spend days swimming, paddle boarding, shell searching, or simply basking in the sun and enjoying the view of nearby Nubble lighthouse. For those who prefer spending their days on the town and don’t mind biking or driving, you’re in luck. This house is near some of the best antique shopping on Maine’s Gold Coast. Some of the area’s best eateries and the Cape Neddick Country Club are also close by.
Inside the home, you’ll find recent updates made to this 1965 build. The house boasts touches like shingled walls, white wood paneled ceilings, and blue accents throughout the design, giving it a true beach house feel. A rustic sliding door from the front entrance welcomes you into an open living/dining area. A wall of wide windows offers beach views as you whip up a meal or relax after a long day on the water. New owners can purchase it with all the current furnishings inside to keep the quaint nautical vibe.
But if you’d like to change all that around, you have options. The current property owners recently commissioned a renowned Maine architect to design a two-story version of the home that could be built on the property. Whoever buys the home will get the custom plans, already approve by the town, opening up the way to a new state-of-the-art residence if that’s what they prefer. The choice is all yours.
