Property description

Nestled in the heart of Portland’s downtown Arts District this circa 1880’s converted brick carriage house is located on a street most Portlanders do not know exists. Yet it is only minutes away by foot from all of the restaurants, music and arts venues, which make Portland the desirable summer destination that it is today.
A five to ten minute stroll in either direction will bring you to the bustling,touristy Old Port or the historic West End . The East End with its beach and coastal walking trails are a brisk fifteen minutes away, with the opportunity to snack in some of Portland's best known eateries along the way.
This 2,500 s.f. home is ideally suited for two families, comfortably accommodating up to six people on three floors of living space. The 1st & 3rd floors each provide a bedroom, full bathroom and rooms with convertible couches.
In addition, take in the downtown views from its 600’ sq. ft. roof garden, equipped with a gas grill, outdoor dining room table and lounge area –truly an ideal place to relax and enjoy Portland’s gentle summer breezes


Keywords: Loft like dwelling on 3 floors with stunning Roof Deck--immediate access to all of the best of Portland!

Location

Enjoy Portland's celebrated 'food' scene which encompasses nationally acclaimed restaurants, ethnic eateries and outdoor farmers' markets;

Portland's music and arts venues take to the streets the summer months with free outdoor concerts and theater in the park on an almost daily basis;

For outdoor enthusiasts, Portland's numerous trails for walking or biking--both coastal and wooded, abound throughout the city;

Enjoy all that Casco Bay has to offer, by renting kayaks, sailboats or hopping a ferry to Portland's many summer islands and beaches for swimming and bicycling.

Cape Elizabeth and Scarborough's scenic beaches, hiking on mountains, shopping in Freeport or touring many of Maine's smaller coastal towns, are all within a thirty minute car ride.

 

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2002

About the owner: Original loft dwellers in NYC, my wife and I were initially lured to Maine by its natural beauty, lakes and coastal access. After several years of vacationing in Maine's lake region and mid coast, we discovered Portland--a city whose sophistication with food and the arts, defies its size. After renting for one year, we found our ideal home--a converted 1880's carriage house located in the center of the Arts District, where we currently reside with our two Samoyeds. Portland's nationally reknowned restaurants--(my wife is a foodie), vibrant music, theater and arts scene--(I enjoy that) and ease of access to the woods and beaches--(my dogs require that) make it the ideal living place for us. A week or two in Portland can be the perfect get away vacation for you, and may result in you too seeking permanent residency in Maine, as my wife Stephanie and I have.
