Cape Elizabeth enjoys a unique position on the Maine coastline. Extending nearly twelve miles into the Atlantic ocean and surrounded by rocky shores and white sandy beaches, it defines the entrance to Casco Bay.
Most of "The Cape's" residential and commercial activity is within close proximity to the seacoast, as is typical along the Maine coast. The town is approximately 9,337 acres, or 15 square miles with a population just under 10,000.
The town includes two islands - Ram and Richmond, both of which are uninhibited.

A Strong Sense of Community
This beautiful coastal town is one to consider for the discriminating homebuyer. Within a few miles there are many attractions, including Two Lights State Park, Fort Williams State Park and Crescent Beach. All of these areas provide abundant natural beauty and are excellent for hiking, fishing, and the occasional picnic. Portland Head Light is the oldest and most photographed lighthouse in America.
Cape Elizabeth is essentially a bedroom community, with primarily residential area and open spaces. Real estate tends to be a little pricier and the residents often find lucrative employment in the nearby larger cities. These kinds of communities are known for housing and retail sales as opposed to manufacturing, technology or entertainment.
There is little new construction within the city and most sales are of existing homes. Because the town is so close to Casco Bay, there is not much room for expansion. Some of the towns unique neighborhoods include Broad Cove and Two Lights, located along the ocean. Cross Hill and Elizabeth Farms are two neighborhoods of upscale homes on large lots, some with views of the marsh. Older, most established oceanfront homes can be found in Delano Park..
