Watch spectacular sunsets over the water from the rocking chairs on the covered porch of this newly restored, traditional Maine cottage at the mouth of the Damariscotta River. The very private one-acre property features a rolling lawn with Adirondack chairs overlooking 200 feet of waterfront, a boat house, deep water dock, and mooring. Paddle our kayaks to explore nearby coves where you might see seals basking on the rocks, or row our dinghy around the point to buy lobster at the fishermen's co-op.
The house is a short walk from South Bristol’s swing bridge, the general store, and the harbor of this picturesque lobstering village. Christmas Cove, one of Maine’s most beautiful yacht harbors with a waterfront restaurant and live music, is a mile walk past fields of lupine and water vistas.
The lovely town of Damariscotta, with supermarkets, galleries, shops, and excellent restaurants, is 15 minutes away and Portland airport is 90 minutes away.
The first floor of the 2,500 square foot house has a living room with wood-burning fireplace, library with hundreds of books, dining room, and gourmet kitchen – all with water views.

The second floor has a large master bedroom with private bath and a rooftop deck overlooking the water, a second bedroom with private bath and water views on two sides, and an office/study.
