About Stephen M Darling
This is my second home -and I spend autumn, Holidays and spring there.
Its furnished and equipped for comfort and easy times.
A private garden amongst mature trees in a quiet neighborhood.
Wake to the sound and smell of surf, walk the beach and relax.
Stephen M Darling purchased this house in 2005
Why Stephen M Darling chose Old Orchard Beach
This is a special neighborhood -in a grove of 100year+ Oak trees -with year-round residents who care -and keep their homes up. Its not on the beach -but so much quieter -especially evenings and mornings -than those houses on or near the beach. I hear the surf when I go to bed, and smell the seabreezes at night -the best of all worlds. Eash access from Boston and Portland -and a young, fun imformal community.
What makes this house unique
Good quiet sleeping location. Peaceful sitting out on the verandah or in the garden in the evenings. Shade trees to keep the house cool during the hot summer days, while sunny bright surrounding area.
