The center cape dates to 1860, purchased by great grandparents in 1899. "Aldermere" derives from the shore stand of Alder trees and the french word for sea - "la mer”.

Renovated to a very high standard in 2008 to 5 bedrooms, with breezeway to garage & full apartment over. Climate by geo-exchange with wind turbine. 3 acres of lawn give tremendous sense of space and views over the bay are grand. Surrounded by Aldermere Farm. Outdoor shower. 1895 Baldwin. History everywhere.

The space
Center section built circa 1860, purchased by great grandparents in 1899 and thoroughly renovated in 2008 to a high standard. The house has charm and light you cannot find. Private, in the middle of Aldermere Farm; yes, the cows may offer their occasional opinions. Heating and cooling by geo-exchange. Substantial library. 4 TVs. 100 Mbps WiFi throughout. 1895 Baldwin. Wonderful back veranda; listen to the waves on a still night and watch the moonrise over 15 miles of bay. Equidistant to Camden and Rockport villages. Rockland is 15 minutes.
