Real Property Lust: Ledgemere

12/08/2011 § 5 Comments

I’ve always wanted a house with its own name.

This gorgeous waterfront home in West Bath, Maine is called Ledgemere.

In. Love.

Mint juleps and mosquito bites.  Playing gin on the porch in the moonlight….

Soft music.  Slow dances.  Laughter.  Kisses.

Sunburnt nose, sandy toes.

Swimming like a fish.

Steaming cups of coffee at dawn.

Can you not picture spending every last possible moment of summer at Ledgemere?  Would you not be counting down the minutes until you could leave the city and sit on her beautiful porch, taking in all that Maine has to offer?  Would you not try to figure out a way so that you never had to leave between Memorial Day and Labor Day?  Would you not also come when the weather got colder, so you could see her in her barren splendor?

Nope.  I’d do all of that.

While in my heart of hearts I know that Ledgemere is meant to be mine, I will wish well whoever actually does pick up this gorgeous property.  It is currently for sale.  If you happen to buy it, you will let me visit, yes?

    Bath is such a lovely town too- though a bit further up then my personal faves of Kittery and Kennebunk. But who are we kidding, I’d take a house like this anywhere really.

  • I think I can just about afford a kayak. You with me? Together we might buy the boatshed?

    Lovely images of a fantastic location. Such images I only really see in the movies, so I’m happy to be in NYC now and have the opportunity to travel to these sorts of places in person.

    Maine summers are the absolute best…this post reminds me of my childhood in Maine, although my house didn’t look like this!
    Have you seen some of the old houses,(mansions, really), on Mt. Desert Island? Beautiful.

    Interesting…..but this isn’t a lake….this is the Atlantic Ocean.
