Last week when I shared about Kennebunkport, I promised to share the charm of Kennebunk homes that we saw during our recent trip there. The Kennebunk River divides these two towns and it’s easy to think you’re still in one town or the other after crossing the bridge. I wish I would’ve asked the locals which town they think is better, and why.
Kennebunk is more residential than the resort vibe of Kennebunkport. But surprisingly, Kennebunk has more beaches than Kennebunkport. There’s no shortage of beautiful homes however, both inland and seaside. Today I’m featuring the inland homes that are located closer to the town’s center.
I like the orange color of the Adirondack chairs against the green siding of this house. I don’t know if it’s a duplex or single resident. The doors make me think duplex but the matching furniture color makes me think it belongs to a single family.
How about this salmon-pink beauty with its paver sidewalk? So elegant and interesting.
You’ll find plenty of blue houses too, when exploring Kennebunk. I’m glad that Maine homeowners aren’t afraid to use color on their home’s exteriors. I think it makes neighborhoods more interesting.
Kennebunk definitely seemed like the quieter side of the river. I’ll bet this yellow house is truly impressive on the inside, if its exterior is any hint of what to expect.
Another impressive exterior features Victorian architecture. Look closely and you’ll see all the details and embellishments.
I found a pair of navy blue homes while exploring the inland-side of Kennebunk. I love the stone “fence” in front of this classic beauty.
This navy charmer enjoys a white picket fence, and also features a red door like the home above.
You know I can’t pass up a red house! Notice how the front door has a barn-style door that can be closed over it. I wonder if that helps keep the cold air out during the long Maine winters.
Not all the Kennebunk homes are large and stately. You’ll see more modest Cape Cod style houses throughout the area. This light blue house is so charming with its window boxes filled with flowers and a cheery, red door.
And not all the houses are colorful, either. You’ll find plenty of neutral shades like these two gray homes with interesting details. The second one is located closer to the beach.
There’s always a classic white home to be found in coastal Maine. And you do see a lot of flags and patriotic bunting throughout Kennebunk and Kennebunkport.
I hope you enjoyed “visiting” the Kennebunk homes of Maine. There’s no shortage of curb appeal in this pretty seaside town. See what there is to do in Kennebunk.
