OLD ORCHARD BEACH – Here, it’s about a one-minute stroll – along the lawn’s paved path, down a short ramp, through the dunegrasses’ tiny trail – to the sand and surf of one of Maine’s finest beaches, the spectacular, seven-mile crescent of oceanfront awesomeness that arches from Prouts Neck to Biddeford Pool.

Here, you can enjoy not only the panoramic vista, but also a degree of relative quiet. The location, just inside the Scarborough town line, is significantly less foot-trafficked. In inclement weather, and indeed year-round, the heated indoor pool with accessory full kitchen and outside grills is available, and may be reserved for parties.

Here, home is a splendid condominium on the fourth level at SeaScape, high enough to ensure lofty views, but “low” enough that you always know you’re living at the beach. Especially when you’re on this unit’s 30+-foot balcony, the shorefront at your feet.

Behind you are three sets of full-view doors that open into a comfortable, elegant interior. SeaScape was built in 1988, but this condo has been reconfigured with an open-concept floor plan. The adroit redesign inspired other owners here to do the same.

Living, dining, and kitchen (new, with granite counters, cherry cabinetry and stainless appliances) flow together in an L-shape, and the space is sufficient to allow for different arrangement of furniture and purpose.

There are, in effect, two bedroom suites. The master is at the back, sharing sunsets with the (present) dining area; the second bedroom looks northeast. Both full baths are updated with granite-topped vanities; pretty, tile backsplashes; and built-ins with a “pickled” appearance. Stacked laundry (Maytag appliances) is in an enclosure next to the second bath.

One pet is allowed. There are two parking spots, plus guest parking. Each unit has a storage compartment, and there is covered space outside for kayaks, etc.    

The 1,115-square-foot SeaScape condominium, No. 4A at 221 East Grand Ave., Old Orchard Beach, is listed for sale at $499,900 by Nancy Z. Moreshead of Best Maine Beach Properties. An Open House will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. on Sunday, April 30.
