About the Property

5 Bedroom, 5 Bathroom With Garden

Bold colors and contemporary art against classic period detail create a sophisticated and playful atmosphere in this large Italianate Victorian. Situated in the heart of Portland's historic West End, the house has three comfortable bedrooms on the second floor: one with a king bed; one with twin bunk beds; and one with a twin bed and a double sofa bed - each with an adjacent bathroom. There is one delightful bedroom with a queen bed and a bathroom on the third floor, and a second large bedroom with a queen bed and twin bed with a private bathroom. Play pool in the third floor suite, or luxuriate old school in one of two claw foot tubs with the breeze coming through the large bathroom windows and skylights. The shade garden along the side of the house is a perfect setting for morning coffee before heading out to wander the brick sidewalks and cobblestone streets of the Old Port, or an evening prosecco before strolling to one the many award winning restaurants just a short walk away. Explore the beautiful beaches and rocky coastline within easy driving distance of Portland, or take a ferry to one of the many islands in Casco bay. This is a comfortable, funky, and spacious home base for your family, friends and your dog to explore the beautiful coast of Maine.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2011

About the owner: My partner, Sandro, and I moved here from New York City while our dear friend Rachel was pregnant with our second daughter. Looking for a saner place to raise children, we chose Portland because my family is here and because it is a progressive place where we knew no eyebrows would be raised at two dads raising two girls. I am a social worker and Sandro is a writer and Italian teacher. We rent the house during the summer when we travel back to Sandro's home in Sardinia to spend time with his family, and give our girls the chance to immerse themselves in delicious Italian culture and speak better Italian than me when we get back even though they are 3 and 4...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
When we initially asked our broker to see this house, he said, 'Are you sure? It's an oddball.' We insisted and realized as soon as we walked in that it's quirky layout, wonderful details and the absence of uninspired renovations were a perfect match for us. The house has undeniably good energy (verified by several of our hippy dippy friends and one psychic) that we felt right away. Pulling up carpets to find extraordinary wood floors and discovering that the fireplaces actually DO work were just the beginning of our love affair with this house. We dug it the moment we walked in and we dig it just was much 4 years later!
