My Idea of Coastal Living

Welcome

These are photos of an ocean side home we toured in Scarborough, Maine a few years ago.  The proceeds went to Habitat for Humanity and Guatemalan Children's Relief Fund, both worthy causes.  

This is my idea of coastal living (not really, it's too big), can you tell I'm yearning for the foot of snow in my yard to melt and anxiously awaiting Spring!  This lovely home which was featured in Coastal Living magazine can be yours for a mere million +, I think it's still available!  Enjoy!

There were more rooms, but I think I selected my best photos to show you!  I hope you enjoyed the tour, we certainly did!

  4. Just lovely but I am not sure of the stripes in the kitchen. I think I would have liked white.

  5. That is really beautiful! I have to tell you I am on the Pacific coast for the month of March and there is a wicked wind this year; kind of scary,

  9. WOW! What a big, beautiful house!

    I always love to look at the historical homes for sale that Yankee Magazine profiles each month. I love an older restored home like them.

  14. It is beautiful - and the mentioning of Scarborough alone made my heart beat faster (although I of course only know the Scaroborough up on England's North-East coast, where my husband and I spent many a happy holiday).

  15. What a gorgeous place ... for all the 'beach' design details, though, that strikes me as a four-season place ... just so lovely and light! Puts our little beach rental on Cape Cod's bayside to shame! Oh well ... the ocean's the ocean! I love it wherever! Thanks for the tour!

  21. Awesome house. I love the baskets on the wall holding the towels in the bathroom. The whole house is dreamy though.

  22. I know it's wrong but I feel sick with jealousy at these pics. This is my dream home ( well maybe it's too perfect. I'd do it a bit more shabby but hey...) lucky you fir getting to visit x

  23. I went on a similar tour in Maine a few years ago. It was called Hidden Pond Cottages. I blogged about it.

    I agree this house is lovely but if I wanted a second home it would definitely be a little cozy cottage.

  24. I am thinking that I could get quite comfortable in a cottage style home like this one. Wow! Thanks for sharing.

  26. OH, my dream come true!!!!...

  27. I've always loved that color palette. Love the kitchen cabinets. I think it's a little big for my seaside cottage so I guess I'll have to continue the search.

    Have to go back and look at the lobster mac and cheese.
