If you’re looking for Falmouth, ME real estate listings, and you’d like to get a feel of the town, consider these neighborhood areas:
- Falmouth Foreside is along Route 88, and is known for its sprawling mansions with ocean views alongside well-established neighborhoods tucked into private side streets.
- The Flats are a tight community with a neighborhood feel. Nestled on the ocean side of Route One, single family houses with tidy yards are regularly awash in ocean breezes.

A new High School and dramatic new athletic complex was completed in 2001, followed a few years later by a brand new elementary school. Students from K-12 benefit from innovative learning spaces including student gardens, a dedicated STEM lab, a professional-quality theater, and much more.
Preserving the character of Falmouth

Route One serves as Falmouth’s “Main Street.” Bracketed by Maine State Ballet Theater to the north and Gilsland Farm Audubon Center to the south, is the heart of Falmouth’s commercial district where you’ll find a healthy mix of shops both locally-owned and nationally-held, as well as an indoor ice arena.
- Town Landing is the community harbor with a sweet little public beach and boat launch.
- Blackstrap Preserve offers miles of wooded walking trails in the summer, snowshoeing in the winter.
- Community Park features well-maintained athletic fields used by a wide variety of organizations, along with an extensive kid-friendly walking trail system out back.
