Description from owner

This oceanfront home boasts a private beach and mooring and an outdoor pizza oven that overlooks the bay & islands. Have a brush in with a local shopping legend and come spend a few days in a house featured in the Spring 2011 LL Bean Home Catalog! ! ! Breathtaking sunrises abound for the early birds. Or for the night owls, the moon rises are nothing short of spectacular as the moonbeams dance upon the sea or search for your favorite constellations amidst the milky way above.

Just a 5 minute drive to Wolf Neck Farm and all of its activities, a 10 minute paddle to the delicious Harraseeket Lunch & Lobster or a 15 minute walk to Wolf Neck Woods State Park, any adventure is just minutes away. Freeport Village is just 5 miles with 100's of outlet stores.

Come stay at an idyllic private neighborhood on the beautiful coast of Maine. The property is located on the southern tip of Wolf's Neck in Freeport, Maine. Only 5 miles from Freeport Village, home of LL Bean and 100+ outlet stores including Ralph Lauren, Cole Haan, Thomas Mosher and The Gap. Restaurants range from pubs to chowder houses to exquisite dining at such places as the Harraseeket Inn. For a little more excitement, Portland, Maine is half an hour away with its happenin' historic Old Port, Merrill Auditorium, AHL Hockey, AAA Baseball and a plethora of great eateries from local brew pubs to fine dining and everything in between.

On the premises, a wood-fired pizza oven faces the ocean and is the focal point for many a memorable summer's eve. Children and adults alike can be their own chefs and enjoy food, family and beautiful Maine sunsets over Casco Bay. Enjoy the beauty and convenience of being pretty much dead center of mainland Casco Bay; you are looking right at Eagle Island w/ the recently renovated Admiral Peary's island residence (a great day trip by boat) and Halfway Rock Lighthouse (halfway point of Casco Bay) just to Southwest of that. A must stop on the way back would be to Dolphin Cove Marina & Restaurant for arguably the best bowl of Lobster or Fish Chowder in the world. If you want to drive less than an hour for a day trip to the southwest is the long, sandy beaches of Old Orchard, Ferry, Crescent, Scarborough or Higgins Beach or the exquisite Popham Beach and and nearby historical forts less than an hour to the Northeast.

- stairs to a private beach

About the area

Nearest Airport : Portland International Jetport at 26.9 Miles Nearest Train : Portland - Amtrack at 25 Miles Nearest Motorway : Freeport Village at 5.9 Miles Nearest Barpub : Freeport Village at 5.9 Miles Nearest Golf : Freeport Country Club at 8.5 Miles Nearest Restaurant : Freeport Village at 5.9 Kilometers This home was constructed with the utmost of care to make as healthy and energy efficient as possible and was built essentially formaldehyde & allergen free and employed zero or low VOC products only when necessary in the construction process. It has HRV units to purify/dehumidify the inside air, gets the majority of domestic hot water from solar panels and all of the bedrooms except for the carriage house have optional 'kill' switches to cut power in bedrooms for those with electrical-magnetic sensitivities. The vast majority of construction products and services came from local sources and utilized as much natural or recycled materials as possible (99% of all the exterior stones came from an abandoned quarry of a nearby island). For those that stay in the off season, warm your toes on the radiant heated floors, enjoy the passive solar warmth from the abundant south facing windows, and don't forget the fireplace or wood stove if it's wood heat that pleases you.
