When it comes to homes with views of Casco Bay and the Atlantic Ocean, there are very few to choose from. This often surprises people who are new to the area, especially when we think of Portland as a seaside city.

Summer Place is a unique community in Portland.  Only minutes from downtown, this charming neighborhood of nineteen homes offers custom cottage-style homes that feature great views of the ocean from Falmouth to Spring Point in South Portland.  During the summer months you can see cruise ships enter Portland Harbor, make their way around Fort Gorges and dock at Portland’s Ocean Gateway.

So, if your looking to enjoy the gentle sea breezes on your front porch you might want to consider 5 Summer Place, which has recently been updated – and is now ready for you to move right in.

5 Summer Place is located a top a small hill overlooking the neighborhood and the water beyond.  It features a large front porch, first floor deck and two additional decks of the second floor.  The master suite and guest bedroom each have their own private deck!

Yes, this home was on the market in 2011 and comments from prospective buyers led to the recent updates and renovations.  The entire home has been painted in warm tones that accent the natural wood floors, trim and many built-ins.  The kitchen has undergone a significant facelift as granite has been added, the cabinetry has been refinished and other accessories added.

The most significant change is in the living area, as you can see in the video below.  A new entrance to the backyard and basement has been added, improving the overall flow of the first floor living area.

Local contractors were used to get the job done on time and under budget. The painting was professionally done by Sue Strasenburgh of Peerless Painting and Colin Greig performed the services of General Contractor.
