Once described as “one of the most attractive residences erected in Portland’s Irvington neighborhood”, this 1914 house hadn’t been treated kindly. It was worn out, habitable but not comfortable, yet loved by its owners. Keeping in period character, the interior was redesigned to accommodate the changing needs of aging. Cozy family room, half bath and hobby room now occupy the lower level. The main level is perfect for entertaining with the welcoming foyer, living room, dining room, accessible bathroom and a redesigned kitchen. On the upper level the master bedroom is a peaceful haven and the once cramped bathroom has been transformed. The sleeping porch, now a sunny office space, is nestled between a sewing studio and the Gentlemen’s Retreat. With its universally designed interior this grand old house now has a new life…its home for life.
