Property Description

Offering both serenity and convenience, this 2-acre property hidden off the main road boasts a four-bedroom Victorian-era home with fine period details and exquisite finishes from the craftsman era. Multiple porches, including a screened-in section, set the tone for relaxation at day's end with ample opportunity to watch the wildlife that enjoy the surrounding wooded areas. Inside, you will find gorgeous stained-glass windows, wainscoting, a detailed fireplace, claw foot bath, and stunning fixtures which serve as gentle reminders of the care and thought brought into the making of this home. Think of all the possibilities for modernization while honoring and showcasing these refined period details. Room to grow and space to enjoy the outdoors, all minutes from downtown Portland and numerous local amenities. Public water and sewer services have been stubbed in from an access parcel off Belfort Street. Potential for the existing house to become a 2-family or group home, and an additional house lot on the remaining land. The parking lot is in the B-1 Zone. Many opportunities are available with this property including day care and a place of assembly.
