Description

The seaside town of Falmouth Foreside borders Portland. You can enjoy the city’s vibrant dining, culture and shopping scene within a ten-minute drive. Make sure to explore Falmouth itself however, as there are local restaurants such as JP’s and Dockside Grill plus specialty shops for wine, baked goods and local produce, Rosemont and Town Landing Markets. 

Only a few miles from this home is Mackworth Island, a beautiful, woodsey path that meanders along the ocean with two quiet, sandy beaches and even gravestones where a previous owner buried his beloved horses.

This home is deceivingly small from the outside. Additions built off the original antique cape surprise guests with rambling rooms, a main-living area with vaulted ceilings and plenty of nooks for solitude after a day exploring Maine. We are thrilled to add this home for families looking to enjoy greater Portland for short-term stays. 

First Floor:

Living/Kitchen/Dining: The heart of the home is the kitchen and living area. With vaulted ceilings & numerous windows, this open concept entertaining area is full of natural light, artistic energy and views of the yard and pool. The home cook in your group will love creating using local foods from the Thursday farmers market, and nearby specialty shops like Rosemont Bakery and Town Landing Market. There are high-end stainless steel appliances, coffee maker and even a Butler’s pantry with lots of wine storage.

There is a breakfast bar for three as well as a dining table under an antique chandelier that seats four. The comfortable sitting area completes this social area, where guests can spread out but also be together. The owners adore Asian art and you are surrounded by nods to this passion–but don’t worry, there are plenty of local Maine artists also represented. 

For a more formal dining experience, there is a separate dining room for six. On warm evenings, you can open doors that lead onto the deck to enjoy the salty, fresh breeze. Off of the dining room is a handsome study with leather chairs, a fireplace, a panel television and more interesting art and artifacts from around the world. The laundry room with a full-sized washer and dryer is off this room. 

The main entrance opens into a mudroom, which is needed all year long in Maine. Whether it be for wet sneakers or sandy towels, this ensures remnants from the day’s fun stays contained. 

Primary Suite: The first floor Primary Suite is tucked away in a private wing of the house. With a king sized bed, this room is quiet and very comfortable. There is an infrared sauna as well as a spa style bathroom with a soaking tub and large stand up, glassed-in shower–perfect to enjoy after a long day exploring. It is up to you if you want to share the existence of this with your fellow guests!

There is also ladder access to a lovely sundrenched room with a grand piano, bookshelves, and couches for reading and relaxing. For those who aren’t lovers of ladders, this room can also be accessed by the second floor. 

Second Floor: 

The second level of the home has three bedrooms and one bathroom with a stand-up shower. The largest bedroom has a double bed and a hanging wicker chair, a perfect way for a tween to spend time doing their summer reading on a rainy afternoon. There is a smaller bedroom with a queen size bed, then a third bedroom room with two twin beds. (This is the bedroom that has direct access to the piano room, for those who don’t wish to climb the ladder from the sauna room.) If extra storage is needed, there are several drawers in the hallway between the bedrooms. All of the bedrooms have extra linens and privacy blinds.

For those of you who still like to exercise on vacation, there is a home gym with a rowing machine, assorted weights and exercise balls. Plenty of room for yoga and stretching. If you are bringing your own road bike, Route 88 often has large groups of cyclers enjoying the winding ride. That route is also very popular for joggers. 

Garden Level: In the fully furnished basement, there is a WC and a large great room with a  ping pong table, and couches for lazing and relaxing. Especially on those extra hot summer nights this area stays nice and cool— this is also a great place to put any teens or kids for movie time away from the adults!

Outdoor Living: The pool will be taken care of through an existing contract with the owners. Please enjoy and be safe and please refrain from using glass while in the pool. The large wooden deck gets wonderful sunlight for afternoon sunbathing and enjoy in the evening for after-dinner drinks and conversation.
