Set on approximately 130 acres of land formerly owned by the renowned American painter, Winslow Homer, Piper Shores is located in Scarborough, Maine and offers its residents breathtaking views of the rugged Maine coastline.
Piper Shores is the first life care facility and largest retirement community in the state of Maine. EGA’s thoughtful design allows over 70% of units a spectacular ocean view. Project features such as short corridors, multiple outside views and small, intimate courtyards soften the institutional aspects of the community and provide a comforting, residential environment.
Taking its architectural cues from Maine’s nineteenth-century seaside resorts, Piper Shores’ bow windows, shingle siding and eyebrow windows reflect a historic feel while using state-of-the-art materials to combat rugged weather conditions.
