My wife and I both are professors at the Maine Maritime Academy here in Castine. I am a merchant mariner and professional sailor, my wife is an Oceanographer.
This is not a rental property. It is our home. We are fortunate to have a camp on an old piece of family property nearby where I summered as a child. We spend the summers there and make our home available to you.
We bought this house after renting in town for 7 years. When it became available we knew it was the perfect home, because it is in sight of the harbor, near the middle of the village, yet its location inside a corner of two streets makes it incredibly private. Sitting in the garden in summer, you can't actually see any of your neighbors or either street, as they are all hidden behind various hedges.
