Rockland, ME


Never met a shingled Cape in Maine that I didn't love.

New England tradition meets modern living in this warm, welcoming, and sunlit in-town Cape on over half an acre. Staying true to the style's simple, clean lines, trademark elements such as wide pine floors, chair rails, and built-ins run throughout. A curving, vaulted ceiling in the stairwell adds a unique note of elegance. The airy, light-filled kitchen is big enough to eat in, and the charming beadboard ell that connects to the two-story barn provides extra space to expand. The office adjacent to the dining room can be a first-floor bedroom, while a trio of bedrooms and a cozy reading nook share the second floor with a thoughtfully updated full bath. Established perennial gardens, a small orchard, and a picket fenced-in portion of the large yard add to the curb appeal of this picture-perfect Maine home. Close enough to walk, bike, or take a quick ride to Rockland's main street, with enough coveted green space all around.
