Under Contract 10/4/2015. Down a winding lane nestled in the woods off the Cape Elizabeth coast sits the kind of house that dreams are made of. Built in the classic shingle style, Sea Glass Cottage is the epitome of a home as masterpiece. Attention to detail is extraordinary, from the fireplaces with rocks individually collected and curated from the beach just steps from the back door, to the thoughtful room layout that takes advantage of the light and ocean views. A coveted spot on the dramatic Maine coast, this cottage wraps itself around you making you feel warm, welcome and at home the moment you enter. This modern take on a traditional New England cottage was designed by the well-known Boston architectural firm of Royal Barry Wills Associates. It is a shining example of the sophisticated charm, traditional lines and graceful arrangement that has been the firm's hallmark for more than 80 years. The extraordinary grounds are framed by a panoramic view of the Atlantic Ocean and the distant islands and lighthouses of Casco Bay. Whether it's a breathtaking sunrise, a calm, crystal blue sea, or a dramatic Nor'easter, the myriad sights and sounds of the ocean and the tang of salt air are everyday experiences in this one-of-a-kind home. It's difficult to believe that such a private oasis of tranquility and beauty is just minutes from the vibrant cultural and culinary scene of downtown Portland.
