Location, location, location... 475 Atlantic Avenue is the first property deeded to the low water mark on beautiful sandy Wells Beach. Fronted by approximately 2 acres of lush sand dunes, the home was completed renovated in 2017. On a double lot with a 12' x 20' unground pool surrounded by a bluestone terrace, the property offers incredible serene vistas with an abundance of outdoor living area. Access to the mile long sandy beach is a short stroll down the path to the right of the property and boaters can take advantage of the Town Marina a 3 minute walk across the street. Currently, this property is located in the no-flood zone.
Built on a 7 foot slab of brick and concrete, it has been insulated with 1/2" styrofoam and covered with Western Red Cedar. A new roof, windows, doors and interior insulation make for comfortable year-round living. This is an intimate home professionally decorated for the discriminating buyer.
Located 1 hour and 20 minutes from Boston and 40 minutes from the Portland Waterfront, you can choose to drive or take the Amtrak Downeastern to Boston, Portland or Freeport! The Wells Transportation Depot is a 5 minute drive from the house.
The expansion possibilities are tremendous, while exterior cabanas provide extra storage and house an a shower and changing area. Natural, native perennials surround the property for a low maintenance yet colorful setting. This is a truly unique property located on one of the last sandy beaches in southern Maine. Furnishings negotiable.

  • Fraud & Scam Awareness
    Unfortunately, there are people that will use internet sites like ForSaleByOwner.com to run all manner of scams on users. We do all that we can to prevent the willful misuse of our platform, however; every day, the scams get more and more sophisticated. We ask that our users be cognizant of the risk and review the following basic ways to recognize and avoid being scammed.
  • Recognizing and Avoiding Scams:

    • Use secure, traceable transactions when making payments - Do not pay a deposit by wire transfer, prepaid money card, gift card, or other non-traditional payment method. Also, refuse to make "overpayments" and never enter into "handshake" deals without a contract.
    • Don't accept suspect cashier/certified checks or money orders - Banks will process and cash the fakes, then hold you responsible.
    • Never give out financial or personally identifiable information - This includes banking and credit card information, your birthdate, Social Security/Social Insurance Numbers, PayPal account etc.
    • Suspicious communications - Watch for parties communicating using poor grammar, spelling or those who send nonsensical messages. Be wary of parties that are only willing to text/email and those that will never speak on the phone or that refuse to meet in person. Generally these people will claim to be "travelling" and unavailable to talk or located in a foreign country and unable to speak other than via text or email.
    • Deals Too Good to be True - If the list price is obviously too low, or the terms are too generous as compared to the market, it’s likely a scam.
    • Don’t be pressured to act immediately - Scammers typically try to make you think a listing is in high demand in order to push you into immediate action without consulting family, friends, or financial advisors. Say no to high pressure sales tactics.
  • Who Should I notify about fraud or scam attempts?
