Property Description

HISTORY! LOCATION! INCOME! For those who like history, you will be proud to own the oldest house in Portland, built in 1700 and documented in 1734. Built in the National District of Stroudwater by Colonel Westbrook, this home is noted for its double gunstock flare posts. Located on the west shore of the tidal Fore River, one can still see the existing wharf, built for Captain Lobdell who was building and trading with tall ships back in the days when the Fore River was navigable from the ocean. The old hamlet of ''Stroudwater village'' just off Congress Street west and minutes from the airport and downtown, enjoys the quietude of the dead end of Westbrook Street with a nice playground, the serene Stroudwater waterfall and miles of walking in the neighborhood without traffic. The proud owners in Stroudwater rarely put their homes on the open market for sale. IN ADDITION, this home also has a 2 bedrooms + apartment which brings a comfortable income. It could easily be reconverted to a single family home. ANOTHER PLUS is the double lot which might yield a building parcel. With 200' of water frontage you can enjoy a canoe or kayak ride, bird watching or just watching the tide... There is also a playground at the dead end of Westbrook street and for those who want to walk the dog, there are quiet dead end streets with no traffic. This antique home has seen a lot of renovations and updates through an ongoing repairs and maintenance program. As with older homes, more can always be done cosmetically and structurally and the asking price reflects the expense to continue to bring the house up to date. Please see list of improvements in documents along with the history of the house. You will appreciate the visit of the interior of the home by watching the video.For residential listing refer to MLS # 1485134
