Property Description

Sweeping panoramic views of Higgins Beach, Atlantic Ocean and the rocks from your front porch, dining room, living room and all 3 of your bedrooms! Rare opportunity to own ocean front property on the cliffs overlooking the beach. This year-round, well-maintained home has been in the same family for 30 years and retains the cottage charm of pine beadboard, wood floors, fireplace and the smell of ocean air 24/7. Located on a private road off the main streets means you do not have people constantly walking past your home all day long. Your view from your ocean-front home remains unobstructed forever and yet well above the floodplain. Steps away from the sandy beach, means you don't have far to walk to get to the water, stroll the beach, or surf the waves. Imagine soaking up the sun and breeze, coffee and cocktails on your front porch from your rocking chairs. Enjoy a small fire around your firepit on the cliffs overlooking the ocean and rocks while nestled among the rugosa roses for a little added privacy. In inclement weather enjoy the same views from your living room while staying warm and dry with a nice fire in the fireplace. Gorgeous built-in bookshelves in the living room make it easy to grab a book to read at the beach or snuggle up with on the large window seat in the same room. Large back deck overlooking the gardens is a great place for your lobster feed if it is too windy overlooking the ocean. Delightful secret garden with wonderful perennials and gardening shed located in the private back yard. Plenty of paved parking in your yard for guests. Wonderful automatic propane generator back-up in case of storms. Higgins Beach also invites community participation with its community club house, annual 4th of July parades, breakfasts at the clubhouse and other events. Showings begin Wed., May 26 and will end on Tues. June 1st at 5pm. All offers due by Wed., June 2nd at 12 noon. Response by Thurs., June 3rd at 3pm.
