About Lynn O'Neill
Real Estate Professional, native New Englander
Lynn O'Neill purchased this cottage in 2004
Why Lynn O'Neill chose Orrs Island
As I approached the front door of 10 Sunset View, I could see the water from Harpswell sound through the side lights and knew this was the one. I bought the home with the intention of renting and enjoying it myself as a get-away. I cherish my get-aways and have tried to keep the cottage - simple, with a vintage seaside feel. Although, I can't live without the modern amenities and devices that we all need to work remotely and stay in touch with our friends and family.
I have also successfully rented the home each year to great tenants that seek the quiet, tranquil setting, panoramic water views, birdwatching, boat watching, boating, fishing ….I often tell people being on Orr's Island is like stepping back in time, away from the hustle and bustle of our work and busy lives.
What makes this cottage unique
The property has a large deck overlooking Harpswell Sound, direct water access to Harpswell sound with dock and floats. 10 Sunset View is set on 3/4 of an acre with a private back yard in a quiet neighborhood.
This home offers first floor living with a master bedroom and bath on the first floor.
