Celebrity-Spotting in Maine

Celeb Patrick Dempsey Website

Maine is becoming the go-to place where celebs go to escape the paparazzi. Celebrities in Maine include Martha Stewart, George W. Bush and John Travolta. Additionally, the actor known for playing the role of Dr. Derek “McDreamy” Shepherd on Grey’s Anatomy, spends a lot of time there. In fact, he spends so much time there that Patrick Dempsey has a home in Maine.

Patrick Dempsey’s Home in Maine

Originally from Maine, Dempsey spent his childhood there before moving to NYC at the age of 17 to pursue an acting career. After gaining success as an actor and settling on the west coast, Patrick Dempsey and his wife purchased another home in Kennebunkport, Maine. He also has several businesses in Maine.

Situated on more than 80 acres, with gorgeous views from every window, McDreamy’s house is everything you would imagine for one of the big celebrities in Maine. Originally built in 2002, the actor purchased the home and has made many additions since then. Outdoors, the house features multiple patios, a pool and in the winter, an outdoor skating rink. Inside, the seven bedrooms and nine bathrooms are impressive but overshadowed by the massive state-of-the-art entertainment center. It’s no wonder Patrick Dempsey spends so much time in Maine.
