PINE POINT, SCARBOROUGH – There’s a gentle outward curve to this home’s 200 feet of waterfront – just enough to suggest, as you stand by the fence and gaze far across the broad river to Black Point, Ferry Beach and Prouts Neck, that you have the shore to yourself, with only the sea birds and gently chugging water “traffic” for company.

But because the property is such a splendid place to entertain, a greater joy may come in sharing its placid views and relaxed lifestyle  – outside by the fire pit in the beach-grassy back yard, or on the elevated deck, or in the hot tub, or out on the water: You can opt for a mooring, and you can add a dock for your dinghy, and to swim from.

The ground-level, daylight, walkout recreation room is outfitted with a Harp Lager tap. There are several casual restaurants within strolling distance. And “sharing” the property in a different sense – renting for part of the year – bestows significant income benefits.

The east-facing home’s interior is classic Maine coastal, updated for contemporary tastes, with just a touch of elegance. On the open-concept main level, the bright kitchen and dining area maximize water views, as does the great room, with its soaring cathedral ceiling and wall of tall windows.

The space features both a wood-burning fireplace with seat, and a newer pellet stove. Off the hall, there’s a pretty, oak-floored bedroom (one of five; there are three full baths, and one 1/2). Upstairs, back-and-front bedrooms are served by a nicely updated full bath; and across the balcony-style hall, the master suite has a private balcony, and a skylit bath
