PINE POINT, SCARBOROUGH – This oceanfront condominium sits prettily in as desirable a location as can be found along the seven-mile crescent of sand that sweeps from Prouts Neck to Biddeford Pool. Here a private path through the sea grass puts you on the beach in seconds – unless you pause to take in the gorgeous views, and perhaps notice that this vantage point allows you to watch the waves breaking from the side, too.

Sunrises and sunsets are breathtaking; no two days’ weather phenomena are the same; and at night, children aren’t the only people who enjoy timing the yellow-green blink of distant Wood Island Light.

Amid the Gables by the Sea association of only seven units, this townhouse occupies pride of place, being closest to the ocean. As the exterior is immaculate – shingle-style siding, lovely landscaping, roof, and decking are new – so is the comfortably elegant, 2,399-square-foot interior, on three levels of living.

Of course, “living” is seasonally expanded by water-facing decks both upstairs and down; the latter has an outdoor shower.

Windows throughout are large and designed to maximize the pleasure of panoramic views, and the rooms have distinct “beach” character: note the cottage-style lightly whitewashed maple flooring upstairs; the beautiful sea green of the subway tile in the new, gourmet kitchen; the shell motif of the foyer’s mural and of the custom mantel in the cathedral-ceilinged master bedroom. There are several murals, nature-themed, reflecting the naturalness with which the living room and dining room, especially, inhabit the setting.

On the second level, the big second bedroom has a sweet full-wall mural, and shares full-bath service with a charming, lofty den/library (or third bedroom) that has great built-ins and a door to the upper deck.

Down carpeted stairs, the lower level adds a big family room with a circular wood-burning fireplace, cabinetry for entertainment gear, and even a large sauna of Western red cedar. There’s another full bath, and a bonus room ideal for “spillover” guest sleeping.

The condominium, Unit 7 at 47 King St., Scarborough, is listed for sale at $1,069,000 by Sandra Murray of Keller Williams Realty. Monthly association fees are $350.

Please note that an Open House will be held from noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Sept. 6.
