Coastal Southern Maine probably doesn't get discussed enough. It never seems to be in the same conversation as Maine's other beautiful hotspots. However, it's right there with any area in this state.
From the New Hampshire border to Camp Ellis, the coast is loaded with incredible beaches, inlets, cute towns, and luxurious homes. And one of those homes just hit the market. It's in the town of Kennebunk. And, let's just say the house is fit for any captain.
Found just minutes from Dock Square is this incredible 19th Century home that just epitomizes Maine and its legacy. Complete with Kennebunk River views, the property beams with bright wooden siding, large windows, and an amazing wrap-around porch.
