About Sylvia Healy-Knox

Purchased this wonderful, New England Cape after returning from the US Virgin Islands and living near the ocean for two years. Wanted to have a place near the ocean for guests to come and enjoy the beautiful beaches and salt air.

Sylvia Healy-Knox purchased this house in 1999

Why Sylvia Healy-Knox chose Southern Coast of Maine

Situated on 1.5 acres of lush green lawns and spacious enough to host a moderate size wedding or family reunion. Minutes away from Wells Beach, it would be the perfect location to have the ceremony at the beach, and a two minute drive to the reception at 41 Brown Lane. Very private and unique. Close to the ocean and everything the beach area has to offer. Close to restaurants, clubs and pubs, boutiques, private back yard for family gatherings and cookouts. Screened in gazebo makes sitting out at night a wonderful, relaxing experience over a glass of wine.

What makes this house unique

Large, private back yard area (1.5) for privacy and relaxation, yet close to all the area churches, stores, restaurants and the beaches.

Guestbook comments from the owner

Ocean, Beaches, Antiques...lots of fun things for the kids to do without leaving the property. Really fun family vacation. The large back yard with the screened in gazebo was fun for family cook outs and privacy for laying in the sun. The sandbox was a real plus for my young children to keep them entertained. Thank you for sharing your home with my family.

Best vacation in Wells we have had in years

  • 5 of 5

We really had a great time at your place. Our daughters enjoyed every minute of their stay in Wells, just as much as we did. Your house is charming, comfortable and felt like a home away from home.

We will be back next year, for sure.
