About The Area

Overview

As Portland’s direct neighbor to the north, Falmouth could be presumed as some sort of suburban outskirt. But in reality, this town is a historic haven, offering a blend of coastal and wooded properties that capture Maine living at its best. Take a trip down to Town Landing, where countless boats have come and gone for centuries, then take a walk through one of the many trail networks, and Falmouth will surely charm you.

The strong school system in Falmouth has always been an attractor for growing families, while the sprawling landscape of the town simply attracts anyone in search of space. A range of classic colonial homes and new builds alike means you can take your pick and call anywhere home. And despite the easy drive to Portland, a central shopping district makes running errands and finding delicious meals a breeze on any given day.
