This classic shingled Cape-style house near the South Point of Biddeford Pool offers privacy and peacefulness down a short, unpaved dead end street. It’s just 3 houses back from Maine’s beautiful rocky coast and open ocean! A quick walk from the back yard via a Land Trust wooded path leads to the wonderful, sandy 3-mile crescent beach that helps make Biddeford Pool so special.
The house consists of 3 bedrooms and 2 baths: upstairs, a Master bedroom with King bed and a 2nd bedroom with 3 twins sharing a 3/4 bath (shower) and downstairs, a 3rd bedroom with Queen bed and nearby full bath. In addition, the house offers an open kitchen and living room with a fireplace, including direct access to the side deck with outdoor furniture, a family room with lovely built-in cabinets, full-sized pull out sofa and gas stove. There’s also a small office with desk, laundry room, a wooden playhouse in the rear yard as well as an outdoor shower to wash the sand away when you renturn home from a day on the beach.
Enjoy walking to the village with a general store, gift shop and lobster pound; splashing in the waves; watching seals on the rocks; taking sunset walks or bike rides; hiking to East Point on the Maine Audubon coastal trail; and generally unwinding in a friendly, relaxed community where driving everyday is not required thanks to the house’s fantastic location.
