Pristine water views of the Portland skyline from this picture perfect cottage on Peaks Island. Ideally located, in easy walking distance from the ferry, is a 4-5 bedroom historic 1895 home with modern systems, impossibly beautiful kitchen and wrap-around deck.

This is a home that makes people stop and smile, dreaming of what it could be like, to live on island, 20 minutes from downtown Portland, Maine. Your front porch, replete with rocking chairs leads you into the sweetest home. The first floor is perfectly laid out allowing a relaxing living room with a gas fireplace, a second living area /dining room combo surrounded by water view windows. The kitchen renovation will bring a smile: whimsical fish hang from the wavy blue wood, water simulating ceiling. You win because this was a brilliant reno job with a serious high-end gas range, elegant marble backsplash, gorgeous counter top, extensive custom cabinetry (including the best pantry cabinet!), and then the sweetest breakfast nook with additional built-ins! A built-in liquor (or non-alcoholic beverage) cabinet to display your delicate glassware is the highlight of the room.

And, we haven't even ventured onto the second floor yet! Three large bedrooms with white bead board walls and high ceilings surround a bathroom with a soaking tub. A fourth octagonal room could be another bedroom but is also the perfect office with stunning water views.

The bonus in the basement is a living room and generous bedroom with killer views as well! The basement belies your typical historic basement. You have normal height ceilings, tons of storage, a work bench, and washer/dryer. Oh, and the outdoor space is divine: a wrap around porch and patio overlooking Casco Bay with the best possible sunset views. Open House Friday, June 10 from 4pm - 6pm and Sat, June 11 from 9am - 12pm.
