Welcome to The Ledges at Whittemore House, a landmark Ralph Adams Cram seaside estate perched magnificently and exclusively above Milbury Cove in the storybook hamlet of York Harbor. Enter through the stone pillars down the meandering private drive with its lush vegetation and perennial gardens gracing either side and you're soon met with the grandness of Whittemore House - privately and elegantly sited on its manicured 1.3 acre grounds, just as Cram intended. Everywhere there is architectural interest: the syncopation of the ribbon windows; the opposing curves of the triple gable window and adjoining tower; the two first-floor windows above the lower doorway. Even the smallest details command attention. With deeded access to Milbury Cove and its secluded pebble beach and steps to the Harbor Cliff Walk that take you to the sands of Harbor Beach, the options for an active seaside lifestyle are sundry. 8 bedrooms, 8 fireplaces, a 3-floor passenger elevator, numerous grand living rooms and dining areas reminiscent of the Gatsby era, and an additional 3rd story Guest Kitchen, allow for plenty of room to gather and entertain with family and friends. Surfing, moonlit beach walks, private clam bakes, and daily sunrises and sunsets against the backdrop of the expansive Atlantic Ocean are yours. Short walk to area restaurants and shops. The marina and private York Golf and Tennis Club are just a 5 minute drive away. Located 50 minutes from the Portland International Jetport and little more than an hour from Logan International Airport, Boston, MA.
