Warren’s Lobster House property in Kittery, ME listed for sale

KITTERY, Maine — The Warren’s Lobster House waterfront restaurant property has been listed for sale at $4.9 million by its longtime owners, as a prior deal for a local developer to purchase, demolish and redevelop the site has fallen through.

Green & Company Real Estate and the Cunningham family have mutually agreed to terminate a purchase and sale agreement regarding the Water Street property, according to both parties. The restaurant is currently working to reopen in a limited capacity, although questions remain for what the future holds for Warren’s.

The decision was made in late February, according to Warren’s co-owner Scott Cunningham. Warren’s has been closed since early January, following flooding damage sustained during back-to-back storms that caused severe damage in coastal communities in Maine and New Hampshire.

The Cunningham family listed the property for sale through Pack Maynard Real Estate last week in an advertisement that touts its potential for development.
