The Higgins Beach community off Route 77 in Scarborough feels like its own little town. There’s a community club house with all kinds of special events, outdoor concerts and annual 4th of July parades. The neighborhood is anchored by a truly unique beach. At one end is the mouth of the Spurwink River with the 19th century shipwreck of the Howard W. Middleton, still protruding from the sand. In the middle are the “Big Rocks” and “Little Rocks,” and at the western end are more rocks dotted with starfish and hermit crab-filled tidepools to explore.

This three-bedroom, two-bathroom oceanfront property is on private Cliff St., an extension of Bayview Ave. that is free of regular car or foot traffic. The front lawn sits on a rocky cliff ringed with rugosa roses for added privacy. Revel in this dramatic landscape, listening to the crash of waves, smelling the salty air and watching the Atlantic Ocean sparkle.

The home is 1,433 SF of year-round space, backed up by a whole house generator. Beloved by the same family for 30 years now, it retains its early-20th century cottage charm of pine beadboard, wood floors, gorgeous built-ins, wood-burning fireplace and a constant stream of fresh, ocean air. A large back deck overlooks the secret garden.

From sunshine to stormy clouds, coffee to cock-tails, front porches to firepits, this property will be a special home and experience for its next owners. Views change only with the weather, but no matter which direction you look, you’ll only see one of Maine’s most gorgeous seascapes.

Showings end on Tuesday, Jun. 1 at 5:00 p.m. Offers are due Wednesday, Jun. 2 at noon.
