Torn between living by the beach or closer to the city? This well-kept townhouse is right between the two in growing Scarborough, just a 15-minute drive to downtown Portland and a much shorter ride to the nearby sandy beaches.

This end unit is attached to its neighbor by a single-car garage. The two-floor layout puts both bedrooms upstairs above an open plan living area downstairs, where the wood-burning fireplace and back deck provide year-round spaces to cozy down or enjoy the pine-scented air.

Upstairs, the primary suite has its own balcony, along with a skylighted loft that would make an excellent office or study. Completing the home is a full basement with efficient oil heater, offering room for storage or expanded living space.

The serene marsh is a favorite spot for birding, canoeing and kayaking, while Higgins, Ferry and Scarborough Beaches are close enough to arrive by bicycle. The Eastern Trail, which stretches south to Kittery, is a wonderful multi-use trail just outside this home’s front door.

Whether this home becomes your full-time residence or your ideal, southern Maine getaway, it’s a catch.
