Cape Elizabeth Real Estate
Located about 5 miles southeast of Portland, Cape Elizabeth is a picturesque community of just over 9,000 residents and set remarkably on Maine’s coastline at the entrance to Casco Bay. Fort Williams Park, Two Lights State Park, and Crescent Beach State Park attract many tourists every year with Fort Williams Park being the most popular, being the home to Portland Headlight – one of the most photographed lighthouses in the country. Fort Williams Park and Portland Headlight represent the scenic backdrop for the finish of the TD Bank Beach to Beacon 10K road race each August which attracts many world class athletes from around the world and has become a premier road race.
Cape Elizabeth real estate does boast many oceanfront mansions and estates as would be expected by Maine’s most affluent community. While the median sales price and real estate values are higher than most communities, there are affordable homes more inland along with acreage, as there are farming residences too.
In addition to the beautiful location and ease in commute to Greater Portland, the Cape Elizabeth public school system continues to receive praise and awards as one of the better systems in the Greater Portland area, as noted by the receipt of the Blue Ribbon Award.
