Tell us a bit about your story!

I fell in love with coastal Maine 50 years ago and vowed I would retire here and live here as soon as possible.  In the mid 90s my then husband and I came up here in dead of winter with our small children to look at property.  We found the deal of a lifetime on the water. When I sold my small company in 2001 I had the cash available to have a house designed and built.  We moved in Aug 2002.  It was a vacation home until 2020.  House was designed so I could age in place.
