This grand oceanfront home overlooking the Atlantic ocean and Higgins Beach is located on the 400 acre Sprague Family property founded in 1920 by Phineas Warren Sprague, who made his money in coal and oil. The land remains in the Sprague family for preservation purposes and to benefit the family. With miles of carriage and walking trails as well as 2 beaches, a horse farm, and incredible views, there is much to explore on the parts of the property open to guests. Many of the various homes on the property are still owned by Phineas' descendants, and most are used as summer vacation homes.
Just a short 15 minute drive from the bustling City of Portland, you will find yourself winding down a road surrounded by fields and instantly feel at peace. Arriving at this nicely updated oceanfront house you will be greeted by panoramic views, quality furnishings and a fantastic spot for a large family get-away. The large house boasts enough space to sleep 12 people. Enjoy the screened sun room, the large deck or head out on your bike or by foot to see some of the picturesque private beaches on the property after exploring the carriage trails.
Entering the house, you`ll find spacious rooms with high ceilings and large windows letting in plenty of natural light. This property is a perfect destination for those looking to get away. It is also a great property for biking, walking, and swimming or for card games at night with family and friends after long fun days in the sun and at the beach. However,if you want to experience Maine's largest city, you can be down in the Old Port of Portland shopping, dining, or bar hopping within 15 minutes.
BEACH CLASSIFICATION: We have categorized this property as having or being near a sandy beach. More specifically for this property - there is a sandy beach in a where the Spurwink River meets the ocean a 5 minute walk away, and another amazing private beach, Strawberry Beach about a 5 minute drive away while still staying on the Sprague Property. You can access the rocky waterfront directly in front of the house via stairs but there is not an actual usable sandy beach directly in front of the cottage. The nearby beaches are great for kids and that is why we have classified it as being on or in this case - "near" a sandy beach.
