Rochelle and her husband Bill inherited the two Cape Elizabeth houses in 2002, from Bill’s late mother who had purchased the properties between 1968 and 1972. Bill had vacationed there with his parents since 1948 and when the homes went up for sale his parents were eager to immortalize the fond memories they’d made over the years. Many years later, Bill and Rochelle married and with their son, Evan, they continued taking trips from their home in Connecticut to the houses in Maine during the summer months. Now retired, Rochelle and Bill reside in Mississippi, and Evan remains in his childhood home in Connecticut, but they still make trips up to Cape Elizabeth whenever they can spare a moment.

Bill, Rochelle and Evan purchased this house in 1968

While Bill had been visiting Cape Elizabeth since his childhood, it did not take Rochelle long to become quite fond of the bright little seaside village. Since her first visit in 1972, she became enamored with the remote beauty of Richmond Island, the rocky shores of Kettle Cove, and the ever-changing atmosphere of the nearby city of Portland. Both passed on their love of Maine to their son Evan, who through countless visits came to appreciate Portland’s renowned restaurant and beer scene, the small family farms of Cape Elizabeth and the overall hospitality Southern Maine has to offer. He now vacations there as an adult with his family and helps his parents oversee the Cape Elizabeth properties.

A relatively new house, this 3 bedroom, two story house replaced the petite ranch house that used to sit on the property before 1995. Ideal for a family or a small group of couples, this beach house is the perfect blend of spaciousness and simplicity that complements the ocean that sits before it. The fireplace and hardwood floors give it old world charm while the roomy kitchen with its ocean view makes cooking seem appealing to even the most domestically challenged guest. Both upstairs bedrooms provide postcard worthy views of the nearby coastline and for the non-early birds, the downstairs bedroom offers shelter from the strong morning sunlight. All it’ll take is one morning of waking up to the sound of waves crashing against the shore, one afternoon of strolling through the tree-lined paths winding around Kettle Cove, and an evening of walking the moon lit sand of Crescent Beach for you to fall in love with this amiable little house in Cape Elizabeth.
