May 3, 2018

Wow! This is pretty perfect! Your own waterfront village in Maine! It has eleven buildings! That price seems unreal considering how much you are getting! And the little chalet is to die for!! Brunswick, Maine. $750,000

From the Zillow listing:



Eleven individual buildings from small to large form a one-of-a-kind waterfront “village” at the Gurnet Bridge in Brunswick. You have the freedom to use the buildings as you like, all while enjoying a deep-water commercial-caliber dock, a lovely area in which to kayak, and the stunning views of a Maine coastal setting. The current owner, for example, uses the 3-level 3-BR Chalet as a full-time residence and office, enjoying the living room with fireplace, the compact galley kitchen with lovely water views, the bright and window-lined sun room with wood stove, and the various bedrooms and/or office spaces. He rents out the 1-BR Bridge House cottage. He paints in Studio #1 and shows & sells his paintings in the Gallery. He stores his nautical, diving and surfing gear in the Bait House and the Engine Room, both of which stand on pilings over the sandy & pebbly beach and water. His sauna is in the basement of one building, and his spacious workshop is in the basement of another. He uses the dock to tie up his skiff and sometimes his full-keel sailboat and allows a member of a local generations-old lobstering & fishing family access as well. He has carefully preserved the grandfathered commercial opportunities of this former family-owned compound known by many locals as Ben’s Lobsters. He has taken every advantage of this unique location and its buildings to make for himself a modern version of a coastal Maine residence/commercial wharf. This “village” is a local landmark, and the owner now offers it to the next owner to cherish and enjoy.
