Location: York, Maine
The Skinny: Nestled on a patch of grass just steps from the rocky shore, this is a Maine cottage in its highest expression. From the location, to the shingle-style design, to the stone fireplaces, even to a lack of bathrooms—just two for six bedrooms—this coastal cottage was built for another era but would suit the casual summer home enthusiast as well. Nothing here is too precious, but it all has a fitting patina. The kitchen, while small, has wooden countertops and original built-ins, while the entertaining spaces have a similarly historic feel, but an overly gloomy color scheme. The saving grace is the waterfront porch, stretching across the home's oceanfront, with stone columns and choice views. The 3,400-square-foot house is currently listed for $1.49M.
