Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: From Vermont, our family has always vacationed in Maine on the coast. My grandfather was a minister in town and is buried here. From the first time we visited Portland we loved it. Foghorns, sunny days, walks on the beach or a good book by the fire all satisfy. Seafood - a favorite of ours abounds.

Why the Owner Chose Portland:
when we walked into the condo it was a 'wow' moment. It is very serene, and yet in the middle of downtown and only minutes away from almost anything to do in Portland. Walking distance to the Old Port. Read a book by the fireplace, snooze, a view from every window keeps things lively. Our son moved into the condo when he was at USM majoring in Jazz saxaphone.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
Unique and acclaimed restaurants. Eat fresh fruit, vegeatbles and fish. LOBSTER. Walk and admire the architecture. Ride bikes all over the city. Take a drive to a beach. Portland is like a small oasis in a vast landscape of beaches, rocks, skyblue, sunsets, parks and streams.
