Two professionals, we love our primary home *very* close to Boston and also our beach home in Southern Maine. We love to travel with our 2 teenagers & are happy for others to enjoy either high-end home while we are away. Love the outdoors & sports with lots of biking, tennis, downhill & cross-country skiing, fishing, & hiking. Both homes are extremely well-maintained, very comfortable & well-equipped for families/groups to enjoy fun times together. We work hard & play hard -- both homes reflect living life to the fullest by enjoying time with family & friends!
