OLD ORCHARD BEACH – A very few minutes’ walk to the seven miles of sand and sea that make this oceanfront town so desirable, here’s a sweet, single-level condominium in tiptop condition and ready to welcome year-round new owners, or people seeking a seasonal getaway.

Built in 1985, the unit has been thoroughly updated in recent years, including even the exterior’s gray shingles, and all windows. In 2015 a Rinnai heater, augmenting (or replacing) electric heat was added.

Aesthetically, nothing about the condo says “1980s.” The main living area is open-concept, and the remodeled kitchen features new appliances, quartz counters including a work/dining island; cool, tile backsplashes; a pantry, and maple cabinetry. Near the dining area of the large living room, sliders open to a private back deck (composite) that receives excellent afternoon and evening light.

New tile, a granite vanity, and stacked laundry in an enclosure are among the full bath’s updates. Both bedrooms are good-sized and have double closets, and ceiling fans, as does the living room.

Parking is for two vehicles, plus guests. Weekly rentals are allowed at Ocean Park Meadow, a 94-unit, 10.4-acre complex managed by a company that is known for its scrupulous maintenance.

Amenities include a clubhouse that has a lagoon-shaped, saltwater inground pool, a community room with a kitchen and a brick, gas fireplace, and a gym with treadmills, weight machines and free weights. There are two hard tennis courts, and two ponds with fountains, whose wooden bridges you will cross when strolling to the beach.

The 956-square-foot home, No. 73 at 146 West Grand Ave., Old Orchard Beach, is listed for sale at $260,000 by Corki Gray of Keller Williams Realty. Taxes are $3,109; the monthly association fee, $310.
