The Bush Estate, summer retreat of  George H.W. Bush, sits on a spit of land called Walker’s Point on the Atlantic near Kennebunkport, Maine.  The land has been in the family for over a century.  

The large central house, built in the New England shingle style, has nine bedrooms, four sitting rooms, an office, a den, a library, a dining room, a kitchen, and various patios and decks. Next to the main house are a four-car garage, a pool, tennis court, dock, boathouse, and guesthouse. There are spacious lawns on either side of the house, on which there is a small sportsfield.

The entrance is gated and guarded by Secret Service officers, though visitors can see the driveway leading up to the main house and a circular driveway, in the middle of which is a large flagpole flying the American flag.

Frankly Kennebunkport itself was a bit disappointing as a town–highly touristy.  Ocean Drive and the houses on it are beautiful.
