Waterfront luxury residence this 14,000-square-foot residence rich in conveniences is set on 5.5 acres of private land with its own beach, and just minutes from the popular city of Portland, Maine.

“There’s nothing quite like this home on the Maine coast—that’s what makes this home so special,” said Chris Lynch, president of Legacy Properties Sotheby’s International Realty, which has five offices along the Maine coast. “This residence has everything a residence could desire, from the look to the feel of a traditional waterfront Maine property, supported by already having amenities I’ve never seen before,” continued his words. “The only box this house doesn’t check is a deep water jetty,” said Mr. Lynch. “because there are waves crashing there, along with a private beach, which is very hard to find in Maine.”

Near a deep water jetty, this waterfront area features a private beach, which is very rare in Maine.

“The Shore Road residence, which is not visible from the road, is quite private,” he said.

Most of the residences around Maine were developed from the late 1880s to 1929, explains Mr. Lynch. “Classic Maine cottages—the most expensive elite level residences in Maine—all are built on top property plots in strategic locations. Most of the houses are still in their original form,” he said.

For the most part, few of them have been updated with modern amenities, he said. “It’s very rare to find any house in Maine with air conditioning,” he added. “In the last 10 to 20 years, buyers coming to Maine are seeking many more creature comforts,” Mr. Lynch said. “They want a pool, a private tennis court, privacy, proximity to an airport, crashing surf, a guest cottage, a first-floor master bedroom,” he said. This four-level house has all of that.

The current owners built the house “with almost commercial-grade specs” in 2001, Mr. Lynch said. “The house is built to last.” “The rooms are very grand and stately,” he added. One of the highlights of the home is a two-story wood-paneled library with a spiral staircase into a cupola. The professional-grade kitchen is also quite large in waterfront residence.
