About Barbara or Lance
My husband and I were searching for a place to retire on the East coast. I grew up in Connecticut and lived in Scarborough Maine while working at Maine Medical Center many years ago. Currently we live in northern California in a small seaside town named Bolinas. We spend 3-6 wks /year at our Maine home and always wish we could stay longer. My husband is a designer/builder, inventor and writer. He grew up in southern California. I am a Nurse Practitioner for family practice and also a Nurse in labor and delivery. We met on the island of Maui nearly 25 years ago and love Maine for all of it's individuality, beauty and unique spirit.
Barbara or Lance purchased this house in 2008
Why Barbara or Lance chose Brooklin
I always wanted a place back east when we found this perfect cape in Brooklin and when we stood out at Naskeag Point at low tide we were sold.
The property is approximately 2 acres with gardens, a wonderful lawn, surrounded by a beautiful white pine forest. It is peaceful and quiet. The interior is decorated with local antiques, comfy couches, chairs and beds. It always feel like 'coming home' when we enter. There is plenty of room for everyone to enjoy privacy as well as entertaining in the kitchen or out the sliding doors to the lawn. The basement is very large for parking a car and storing equipment such as kayaks or bikes.
What makes this house unique
We love the access to kayaking around the nearby islands and bicycling the back roads of Brooklin. We get our lobster fresh from the boats that come in to Naskeag Point as it continues to be a working harbor. The sunsets from this point are spectacular, the setting is peaceful and quiet. Our home is decorated with local antiques, books, comfy beds, sofa and chairs.
We are in walking distance from Wooden Boat and not far from the town of Brooklin which boasts a wonderful library, a classic general store, The Brooklin Inn and The Cave as well as several boutiques for unique jewelry and gifts.
