We have been visiting the York Beach area for years and waiting to find just the right house to enjoy with our family. We finally found it in our 'Seagulls Nest'.
York is a quaint beach community within 90 minutes of Boston, Manchester, NH and Portland, ME. It has 3 well maintained beaches, a world famous lighthouse, cliff walk overlooking the ocean, museums, historical sites, shopping, dining and several in-town recreational options. While there is plenty to see and do, York is not over-developed or congested.
The house has become a gathering place for our extended family and friends. We can walk to either Long or Short Sands beaches in less than 10 minutes. Our family really enjoys the screened 3 season porch and playing in the large private backyard. It’s large enough so we can play and hang out together when we want to, but also provides us privacy and the flexibility to do our own thing. As we get older, we wanted a house that offers '1st floor' living. The floor plan eliminates the need to deal with stairs if we don't want to.
