Explore the soul of Maine in some three dozen of its most original, authentic, and evocative houses

For several years, acclaimed photographer Maura McEvoy and art director Basha Burwell traveled the length and breadth of Maine in search of houses that capture the state’s singular character. These are not designer houses; they are homes created by the people who live in them, from artists to writers to fishermen, distinctive for their ingenuity, originality, and fierce individuality. Many are unchanged, inhabited by generations of the same family; some are ingenious conversions. These are homes that have a kind of visual wealth that money can’t buy, homes that define the very spirit of Maine.

Photographer Maura McEvoy has spent every summer of her life on the Maine coast. Her work has appeared in House BeautifulTown & CountryCondé Nast TravelerOutside, and Martha Stewart Living.

Born and raised in Maine, Basha Burwell is a stylist and art director for national retailers and clients such as L.L. Bean, Garnet Hill, and Pendleton.

Writer Kathleen Hackett spends her summers in Maine. Her most recent book is Brooklyn Interiors; she contributes to Elle Decor, Architectural DigestT MagazineHouse BeautifulVerandaMartha Stewart Living, and Southern Living.
