An Erosion-Prone Maine Manse at the Mercy of the Ocean

Have a nomination for a jaw-dropping listing that would make a mighty fine House of the Day? Get thee to the tipline and send us your suggestions. We'd love to see what you've got.

Location: South Portland, Maine
Price: $1,600,000
The Skinny: Set so close to the ocean that the edge of the swimming pool seems to empty onto the beach, this '50s construction in southern Maine might seem like quite a deal, but considering what erosion could do to this seafront spread, some engineers reports may be in order. Priced at $1.6M, the house boasts stunning water views from broad single-pane windows, that precarious pool, four bedrooms, and an interest in nearby conservation land. Then again, a couple decades of nasty nor'easters might leave the next owner pitching a tent on that conservation land.
