2 Maple St., Portland — $400,000
3 beds, 1 bath, 1,569 SF

Peaks Island is a special place to live year-round. This circa 1900 cottage looks east down the island-circumnavigating Seashore Avenue toward Cushing Island and Ram Island Ledge Lighthouse. It could use a cosmetic refresh, but maybe you love wallpaper. Equipped with forced hot air, a wood stove, and fireplace for chillier nights. Half-mile from Casco Bay Lines. Listed by The Scott & Sunny Townsend Team, Keller Williams Realty Greater Portland. See the full listing.

978 Mere Point Rd., Brunswick — $820,000
3 beds, 1 bath, 1,064 SF

Mere Point is a branch of land between Maquoit and Middle Bays, where most homes are about a 10-minute drive to Bowdoin College and downtown Brunswick. This ranch home is modestly nice on its own— a finished basement, two car garage and back deck—but the weight of the price likely comes from the 235 feet of shoreline on Maquoit Bay, where there’s potential to install a new ramp or float. Listed by Rick Baribeau, RE/MAX Riverside. See the full listing.

28 Red Fox Run, Harpswell — $795,000
3 beds, 2 baths, 1,922 SF

Across Middle Bay is Harpswell Neck, where this home sits on one of the highest points in Harpswell. According to the listing, it was recently updated with new carpet and paint. Another pitch is that the two-acre lot could host a guest cottage with town approval. Windows in the kitchen/dining area and side deck face south to Bailey Island and Pott’s Point. Includes right of way to Merriman Cove. Listed by Rob Williams, Rob Williams Real Estate Brokers. See the full listing.
