About Steve Muller
Lynne (wife, mother, artist) was born and raised around Portland Maine then moved out to San Francisco California 25 years ago. Steve (husband, father, firefighter) was born and raised in San Francisco and fell in love with Portland Maine while visiting with Lynne. Ivy (daughter, spirited child, 3 year old extraordinaire) has 2 sets of grandparents in the state of Maine, so they invested in this property so they could be bicoastal. We all enjoy fixing up cool old things like this amazing house, making art, playing and being around music.
Steve Muller purchased this House in 2014
Why Steve Muller chose Back Cove
1850's New Englander… hardwood floors, lots of room, situated a short walk to Back Cove! We also have a really great quiet tenant family renting the back unit.
What makes this House unique
Carriage house lamp outside. Front porch. Yard with cool flowers. Sweet juxtaposition of neighbor homes. Very cool old brick sidewalks on street. Huge old radiators. Pocket doors between living room and dining room. Gorgeous old stained glass window in stairwell and attic. Piano in livingroom.This home is furnished in part by Lynne's Grandparents estate (including some family made wooden furniture), some leave behinds of the family who lived here before, Summer garage sales/flea markets and Lynne's own stash of fun antiques. You can feel the warm spirit of the family that lived here for several generations.

Great house, very clean
We had a great experience staying here!
OK but needs some upgrades
The house was very large and conveniently located for our needs. However, be aware it is on a busy street that can be noisy. It is a few blocks from a school playground and a city playground. Two excellent restaurants are within walking distance and there is an ice cream shop across the street. There were toys and games, but we were busy with outdoor activities. The house decor is "eclectic"/early yard sale with some accessories bordering on bizarre. Furniture in gathering spaces was comfortable, but the beds were not. Our bed was hard and the frame creaked noisily. There were fans in the bedrooms and an old AC in one. We ordered in or ate out, so we can't comment on kitchenware. However we couldn't find wine glasses and the dishwasher was broken. That was a disappointment for such a large house which could host a number of guests. All in all, it served our needs.
