Real Estate in Maine Near The Water
Many homes are sprinkled across the coast and on the water in Maine. With plenty of lakes, ponds, and access to the sea, we are fortunate to have incredible real estate in Maine for homes on the water.
Even more incredible, we have homes on islands.
According to Explore Maine, there are more than 4,600 islands off the coast of our state. One of those islands is the beautiful and historic Diamond Cove.
Diamond Cove, Maine
Diamond Cove is an island in Casco Bay that’s just a short 30-minute boat ride from Portland’s mainland. Many Mainers know it as the island that’s home to the scenic Diamonds Edge Restaurant.
Home for Sale on Diamond Cove Island, Maine
Legacy Sotheby’s International Realty recently posted a historic home for sale right on the island. Listed at $899,000, the five-bedroom, four-bathroom home has direct walkable access to island amenities like the pool, tennis courts, gym, beaches, and restaurants.
It is overflowing with charm as a historic home that was built in 1860 but recently renovated, preserving the history and uniqueness that gives it its beauty. Hand-painted murals, soaring ceilings, custom built-in shelves, and exposed brick, are only a few of the wonders that make this home so marvelous.
Living in this home would encompass so many parts of Maine we all love; the salty breeze, life on the coast, a sense of community, and its history. The home sits right near the water as the former Post Headquarters site on the island.
