SOLD in September 2017 for $585,000.

This light-filled shingle-style cottage sits at the gateway of Cape Elizabeth’s coveted Mountain View Park neighborhood, a quintessential block of meandering streets just across from the ocean. The house is a .3-mile stroll from Cliff House Beach, and just around the corner from one of Maine’s most treasured places, the 90-acre Fort Williams Park.

The daily commute to Portland from here is a pretty four-mile drive (or bike ride!) down Shore Road and across the Casco Bay Bridge, with locally famous restaurants, shops, and bakeries all along the way.

The home’s natural cedar exterior sets a classic seaside tone as soon as you approach, with its historically significant window array and a gracious wrap-around porch that offers stunning views all year long – of the ocean in winter, and of a large, lush, landscaped yard in spring and summertime. A private garden and patio make the outdoor scene complete – a perfect place to entertain guests or simply to relax.

The inside of the home is equally inviting, with turn-of-the-century appointments like hardwood floors, French doors, beautiful built-ins, and crown moldings lovingly preserved and enhanced throughout the years. These features are complemented by modern must-haves like new wiring, renovated baths, and a tastefully updated eat-in kitchen with white custom cabinetry, granite countertops, a farmhouse sink, gas cooktop, double ovens, and a center island to gather around.

New England seaside style, modern conveniences, and the perfect Cape Elizabeth location. If this is what you’ve been seeking, schedule a showing to make it yours.
