This beautiful oceanfront cottage overlooking Higgins Beach is located on the 400 acre Sprague Family property founded in 1920 by Phineas Warren Sprague, who made his money in coal and oil. The land remains in the Sprague family for preservation purposes and to benefit the family. With miles of carriage and walking trails as well as 2 beaches, a horse farm, and incredible views, there is much to explore on the parts of the property open to guests. All of the various homes on the property are still owned by Phineas' descendants, and most are used as summer vacation homes. The houses are all separated by considerable distance, so privacy is eas...ily obtainable.
Just a short 15 minute drive from the bustling City of Portland, you will find yourself winding down a road surrounded by fields and instantly feel at peace. Arriving at this nicely updated beach cottage (renovated and upgraded over the spring of 2009), you'll be hard pressed to not sit on the deck and watch the surfers over at Higgins Beach, or head out on your bike or by foot to see some of the picturesque private beaches on the property after exploring the carriage trails.
This classic Maine cottage has the feelings of summers past with the comfort of today's standards. In addition to a deck that overlooks the bay, entering the cottage, you'll find a living room and dining area that share the same spectacular view. This property is a perfect destination for those looking to get away. It is also a great property for biking, walking, and swimming or for card games at night and family/friend intimacy after long fun days in the sun and at the beach. However,if you want to experience Maines largest city, you can be down in the Old Port of Portland shopping, dining, or bar hopping within 15 minutes.
