Wake to the sight of a great blue heron wading in the shallows, and osprey calling overhead! Harbor Place, with its extraordinary waterfront location in South Portland's colorful downtown, is a rare bargain. And this first-floor unit has a water view from the living room, kitchen, and each bedroom! One level-living never looked so beautiful!This south-facing unit has great light throughout. The bright living room boasts a Jotul gas ''wood stove'' that efficiently handles the lion's share of the unit's heating needs. The kitchen offers good counter space, full sized appliances, and the convenience of a large laundry closet/pantry. Down the hall past a cozy dining nook, and the tidy, tiled bath, you'll find two comfortable bedrooms--one with an enormous walk-in closet. (The amount of storage space throughout this unit is remarkable!)Durable laminate flooring, large insulated windows, and efficient on-demand hot water make for truly low-maintenance living--or a robust rental property. Harbor Place's spacious campus includes the use of an old stone jetty that takes you out into Portland Harbor for a picnic or boat-watching at the neighboring marina. Each unit has a dedicated parking space, and there are plenty of extra spaces too. Not that you'll need a car here: Supermarkets, restaurants, salons, coffee shops, pharmacy, veterinary practice, galleries, town hall, and even a brew pub are a stroll away. Portland's Old Port is a quick walk over the bridge, and bus service is nearby as well. Oceanfront property in a downtown location, at this price? With an HOA fee of $238? Schedule your showing!
