Diane and Kevin Tourangeau have lived in Biddeford Pool since 1994 on Mile Stretch Road. Their primary residence is in Lake Forest, Illinois - a suburb of Chicago. They have four grown children: Jennifer, Victoria, Jillian and Gregeory - all of whom went to Bentley College in Boston and now live in the Boston area. Terabethia, the name of the home on Mile Stretch Road, is the center of family gatherings where all of the Tourangeau's continue to build upon the memories of Biddeford Pool.
Kevin W. Tourangeau purchased this house in 2009
Diane and Kevin Tourangeau built a new home on a vacant lot in the heart of Biddeford Pool in 2009 for the purpose of renting to family and friends. The property was one of the few remaining gems in the Pool. The features of the house are over-shadowed only by the community spirit enjoyed by all during the summer months in this exclusive seaside enclave. Summers in Biddeford Pool are for families and friends seeking to share their lives and memories.
11 First Street is a unique home that combines all of the amenities of a new house with the feeling of an old New England mansion. The carefully constructed mansard roof and wrap-around farmers porch give it a charm only found in yester-years while blending in with the Biddeford Pool community. Its location on a top of a hill yields ocean views enjoyed only by a few homes in Biddeford Pool. Its warm and inviting appeal allows you to be most comfortable without compromising any functionality or convenience.
We truly had a wonderful time. We will be sure to tell our family and friends about your getaway on the beach. Thanks again!
