Property Description

From a commanding location at the very precipice of Portland's prestigious Munjoy Hill this once grand home that dates back to 1865 has been honored and reimagined and offers even more options and potential. Over the last several years the current owners have quite literally saved this home from the wrecking ball and transformed it from decay to deluxe. Like many of the homes on the East End this property needed major updates and upgrades and rest assured they were done and done to a high level. This was a full gut-rehab from foundation to roof nearly everything is new and designed to be low maintenance and super efficient. From full re-insulation, re-wiring, new plumbing, kitchens, baths, super efficient mini-splits for heat and ac, landscaping, drive and so much more. The full interior renovation also means where you live will be lead free/safe. Not intending to sell, the owner has a master plan that contemplates an additional 3rd floor unit with a water view sky-deck (remember this is the highest part of Munjoy Hill so the view will be breathtaking) and an additional 4th unit where the current garage sits. Currently setup is as a 2 unit with 1 - 2 bedroom, 1 bath unit and 1 - 3 bedroom, 2 bath unit. Each with in-unit laundry. Buy and enjoy just as it is, buy and convert to what would be one of the nicest single families on the hill, buy and condo convert or buy and use the owners plans or your own to reimagine...
