Convenience and beauty.

Sunset on a beach.
The sunsets are spectacular at this beach just a 10-minute walk from the Shamrock.

This 3-bedroom, 2-bathroom well-maintained home on Peaks Island delivers convenience, comfort and beauty.

Centrally located, it’s just a 10-minute walk from the ferry dock (after a 15-minute ferry ride from Portland). And it’s a shorter walk to the grocery store, three restaurants, a coffee/pastry shop and a pub, as well as a few art galleries and the world’s only Umbrella Cover Museum. It’s just a short walk to two of the best beaches on the island too.

It’s a solid home on a quiet street with a new heating system, central air-conditioning, dishwasher, and washer/dryer.

Peaks Island has been described as quirky and artistic but it’s also got a history of community, where neighbors have real connections to each other and the surrounding natural beauty. And this home is located in one of the oldest, well-established island neighborhoods.
