CAPE ELIZABETH – A water view is a fine thing. Two of them? Even better. Those views – east over the open ocean and Two Lights, and north to Portland Head Light and Casco Bay – can be enjoyed from all floors here, and most breathtakingly, from the third-level master suite of this lovely Cape in highly desirable Shore Acres.

Built in 1930, and extensively updated and expanded since, the immaculate, 2,861-square foot home retains much original character, as seen in features such as the living room’s handsome brick, wood-burning fireplace; the Douglas fir and Southern yellow pine flooring, and the five-panel doors. The long list of improvements includes a 2009 roof, a 2014 boiler, fine landscaping, fresh exterior paint, new bathrooms, and an outdoor shower that awaits your return from sandy Trundy Beach, which is a short walk away, and protected by the Cape Elizabeth Land Trust.

Also new is a huge mudroom/laundry with beadboard accents, which introduces an open-concept kitchen-and-dining room. Counters are marble, the island hardwood-topped, and newer appliances, including a four-burner gas range, are stainless.

Double French doors open into a splendid main living space, also open-concept, and large enough for different furniture arrangements and purposes. There is now a children’s play area at one end, and an office nook at the other. The original porch has been enclosed, and opens out to a deep, side-to-side deck added just two years ago.

Upstairs, a full, 2016-new bath with tub serves four good-sized bedrooms, one of which has maple flooring and a daylight walk-in. The master suite has the top level entirely to itself. The bedroom with skylight has a sitting area; one highlight of the bathroom is the seahorse and meandros accents in the tub’s tiled surround.

Off-street parking is ample, and there’s also a charming one-vehicle garage, built in 2006, that has great workshop space, and a walk-up second story that invites finishing.
