Kennebunkport ME Housing Overview

Since the 17th century, Kennebunkport has been a cultural and commercial center within the State of Maine. At its beginning, the town was widely known for its shipbuilding, having thousands of vessels pass through the harbor. Today, Kennebunkport remains vibrant, attracting people from far and wide to soak in the New England lifestyle. It would be fair to say that the most famous residents are former President George H.W. Bush and his wife Barbara who own an expansive piece of real estate along the Atlantic Ocean. With its down home charm and tight-knit community, Kennebunkport is a great place to begin your search for a new place to call home. 

If you’re not looking for real estate right on the water, there are still many public places within the town where you can relax by the sea. From expert to novelist, birdwatchers from all over the region come to the Rachel Carson National Wildlife Refuge. As one of four vital seaside preserves on the East Coast, it provides a sanctuary for thousands of migrating birds coming and going to places as far as Mexico. Kennebunk Beach and Parson’s Way are also great places to get outdoors. Featuring sandy beaches and scenic ocean promenades throughout, it’s not too far from local shops and restaurants. 

The Bush Compound, also known as Walker’s Point includes the home of former President George H.W. Bush, his wife Barbara, as well as their sons Jeb and George W. Having had the property in the family for over one-hundred years, the site has gone through a slow evolution, eventually becoming the palatial estate that it is today. Those who sail the open waters leading into Kennebunkport Harbor can not help but notice this stately manor as they navigate the jagged Maine coast.
