The 12' x 32' back porch opens up to a large 1/2 acre yard, great for Lobster Bakes, barbecues, games, outdoor activities and storing any sea kayaks, paddle boards, or other water equipment you might want to bring down to the 'Town Landing'. Open the 3 glass garage doors next to the porch, and you have access to the 34' by 6' lap pool - which happens to have a full length mosaic-tile Octopus on it's floor and walls - don't worry... he won't bite. But he can double as a swim-up bar for happy hour. More

About the neighbourhood
Falmouth Foreside is considered the most desirable neighborhood in Maine, and our home is literally in the middle of it. The iconic Town Landing Market is literally across street, with year-round live lobsters, an incredible cafe' with Lobster Rolls, sandwiches made to order, amazing pizza, and gourmet grocery items. The Town Landing pier and boat launch are at the bottom of our hill, only a 2 minute walk away, with over 2000 boats in the harbor. Access to all of Casco Bay's Islands by boat, kayak, SUP is right here - with all the amenities to make a memorable vacation. Portland has just been named the top small destination city in the USA, and is only 5 miles away - easily walkable on the new trails, or bike, or short drive. Explore the Is
Getting around
There is room for up to 4 cars on the property, and also a large public parking lot across the street. There is also a bus stop right across the street that goes directly to the Old Port section of Portland. Walking down to the harbor takes only a couple of minutes at most, and walking to Portland only takes around 40 minutes, or 15 on bike, or 5 by car. There are abundant trails in the neighborhood also, and the mountains are only 70 minutes away by car.
