STROUDWATER ANTIQUE GEM where you can enjoy a special and rare style of living on the Portland waterfront. This 1700 Antique home entices you with glimpses of Colonial times such as the original glass windows that let the sunshine in and frame views of a neighborhood untouched by time. Period highlights include 'gunstock flare posts' visible in many of the high ceiling rooms. You will find a kitchen designed to gather and chat around the ceramic tiled island, a sunny riverside breakfast nook, formal dining and living rooms on the ground floor. You will be proud to live in the oldest house built in Portland. It has seen many renovations and updates among which are a new roof, new bathroom, new natural gas furnaces and a new driveway. In the spacious home, a 2 bedroom apartment was created which brings a $24,000 income. It would be easy to return the house to its original space. It is special to live in a home close enough to the train station and the airport so that one can easily commute or work from home and also close to shopping, medical centers, restaurants and Art venues that Portland has to offer. When you wish to unwind, you can enjoy the waterfront and watch the tide, the eagles, ducks, geese and many birds or get your paddle and boat ready to explore the Fore River. The old hamlet of 'Stroudwater village' just off Congress Street enjoys the quietude of several dead end street where you can walk without traffic and hear the serene waterfall of the Stroudwater river. Please, watch the video to completely appreciate this property.
