.74 Grove Street Wells, ME, 04090 Located fewer than 200 footsteps to famous Drakes Island Beach is 74 Grove Street. The 2200 square foot, two-story home is choicely located on a quiet street where the only sounds are bicycles, the ice cream truck, and the waves. The remodel was practically a re-build: new roof, new windows, new HVAC, and foundation as the house had to be raised. Enter from a roomy rocking-chair front porch perfect for watching the sunset or listening to the surf and bell buoys.The front foyer features a double guest closet, leads to both the staircase and oversized, sun-drenched...living room. The living room features a rock sheathed gas burning fireplace, and a window-lined alcove facing the street perfect for a desk or grand piano. Behind the living room is the open dining room, with space for at least a ten foot long dining table, plus a large, private study with exposed brick and wood-burning fireplace surrounded with custom built shelves.The crowning glory of this home is the professional, award-winning kitchen where you can meal prep amid gentle ocean breezes. Preparation is most professional on the thick, Carrera marble counters to the mahogany sideboard under the window. Cabinets are white-washed custom oak with custom made glass knobs custom designed to match the antique glass doorknobs throughout the home. There is a leaded glass-front pantry, high-end stainless appliances such as the Liebherr counter-depth refrigerator, and the Bosch dishwasher, custom gas oven and range by Superiore, and an Edgestar wine refrigerator. The oversized stainless steel farmhouse sink is centrally located for a professional caterer's staging prep or mixing up a summertime pitcher of fresh lemonade.

Each room has window-views of the yard and gardens, and you can even glimpse the sunrise from the expansive master bedroom windows.
