Year Purchased: 1983
About the owner: We were both born, raised, educated, and built our careers in Maine. We love all aspects of the state with its mountains, where we ski, the lakes where we enjoy kayaking, fishing and camping. Our son and his family live in Michigan. We are both retired this year and look forward to seeing more of them. You can see our dog Cappy in some of the pictures as he is our shadow. We enjoy dining in the many superb restaurants in the area. We love to entertain which is why this house appealed to us 32 years ago. The backyard is very inviting with blueberry bushes, a grape vine, Apple and pear tree. We have a male and female Cardinal that spend the most of their day at our feeders as well as a host of Maine birds, squirrels and chipmunks.
Why the Owner Chose North Deering, Portland, ME, USA:
We purchased this property thinking we would make improvements, redecorate and sell it but after spending a few years in it we loved its personality and the location was so perfect we decided to do additional improvements and stay. We still cannot believe how private it is while being so close to all things exciting and delicious. We love to eat our warm weather meals on the screened in porch with the pool and the porch lit up at night. We feel like we are in the country, yet we are just 10 minutes from the center of Portland. It is prime location with easy access to all of southern Maine and even two hours to Boston. The train is 10 minutes away too!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Each person who visits us for the first time is very surprised at the interior size compared to what they expected when seeing it from the front. Many rooms have been altered and improved upon over the years. The home is now at a point where the word predictable is not used to describe it. The backyard is totally secluded so it too is a pleasant surprise for first time visitors. The private back yard with large deck and pool gives one a nice option for relaxing and sun bathing without feeling as though you need to go to the beach.
