This is a unique property with complete privacy. It's close to the town of Brunswick (5 miles) and an easy commute to Portland. Western exposure has beautiful sunsets. Lately the seals have been swimming past with eagles, herons and other seabirds. the views of the Ocean are out every window!
Beautiful, private, spring, summer and fall retreat on the Oceans edge.
