When the Cottage went up for sale next door to our own home, we hated to see such a classic Maine sea cottage get torn down by a new buyer. The property was an amazing 4 acre private parcel on the coast with a unique history. Our ultimate vision is to sell our current house, preserve at least 50% of the existing cottage structure, and renovate 'the Old Lady'. She has survived 100 years of storms, seas and the elements - we can't help but believe she wants to live for another 100. Tides Edge is a special place and we have loved raising our family here.
