Home by the sea. Feel yourself relax as you head south off Route 1 to Georgetown on Five Islands Road, winding all the way down to where it meets the Atlantic. A few breaths before sits this Maine home/cottage--resolutely unchanged for years. Weather-worn cedar shakes, slappy screen front porch door, quality wood floors, and a large lazy porch whispers, ''Home.'' Comfortable sitting area opens to small kitchen from both the left and right, a small brick wall and a wood stove between. Unfinished first floor half-bath/laundry to left of entry/sitting room. Full bath sits on half-floor between first and second floors. Two upstairs bedrooms and single unfinished loft enjoy peek-a-boo views of the ocean. And the sound of waves hitting the rocky shore from their open windows.Voted ''Best Porch'' by neighbors, it's a perfect perch to watch the island's coming and goings, and offers the best seats in the house for the village's celebrated 4th of July parade. A cherished spot for good reason. Family is looking to pass the baton to the next generation of Maine coast lovers with a eye for authenticity. Home is ripe for upkeep and repair, new furnace included. This half acre lot is uniquely large for its location, thanks to family foresight in acquiring the adjoining parcel many years ago. Up and behind the main house sits a small guest cottage, a likely tear down, but with a great footprint for rebuild opportunities. Short walk down to fresh lobster on the wharf, with a view of 4 of the ''Five'' Islands. Pristine Ledgemere Beach, known only by the locals (shh...) and protected by the Nature Conservancy for quiet lounging, sunbathing and swimming. Charles Pond for clear and beautiful swimming. Short drive to Reid State Park for miles of Atlantic ocean beach, swimming, and hiking. Under an hour to Portland and Augusta and 15 minutes to cool city of Bath. **Showingtime** All Covid precautions followed.
