Scarborough Maine Real Estate
Scarborough is known for its oceanside neighborhoods (Higgins Beach, Ferry Beach, and Scarborough State Beach) and excellent school system. Love the outdoors in all seasons? Hiking trails through the marsh, public kayak launches, snowshoeing and bird watching are all popular activities for local residents. Prout’s Neck, a peninsula in the town of Scarborough, has stunning views and luxury homes; there is a golf course, bird sanctuary and a country club.
Willowdale Golf Club is one of Southern Maine’s hidden gems. Several holes border the beautiful Scarborough salt marshes. The course offers top notch conditions with plenty of challenges for all golfing abilities. Willowdale also offers a modern clubhouse with all the amenities. The course is within easy driving distance of Portland and is very close to the Maine Mall. (http://www.themainegolftrail.com/maine-golf-course/willowdale-golf-club/)
The Winslow Homer Studio is the historic studio and home of the artist Winslow Homer, which is located on what is now Winslow Homer Road on Prouts Neck in Scarborough, Maine. (Wikipedia)
Scarborough, Maine just south east of Portland has another famous landmark - the Black Point Inn. The lovely Inn is set right on the bay by Prouts Neck. What views from the veranda! Perfect place for a weekend getaway, a special lunch or dinner, or if you're very lucky, a wedding. Despite the great food, it is the view and the setting of this amazing Inn that makes it worth the drive. (http://www.blackpointinn.com/inn/)
Higgins Beach is a place with great waves compared to the other beaches in the area. But it is mostly geared for the locals and it is hard to find parking in the summer. But if you can find parking, it is so worth it if you like a quiet beach. There is also a local farm stand and local market. Limited visitor parking makes Higgins Beach a highly desirable place to live.
