Willard Beach Gem - Open House 6/26 12-4 pm - 180 Preble Street, SoPo

This 1927 bungalow has been completely renovated, adding modern amenities while retaining original, antique charm.

By removing a few walls, the house now has a large open floor plan- including a living room and dining room that are flooded with sunshine.

At one end, the living room boasts a wood burning fireplace - the other has dramatic built ins that provide lots of storage.

The dining room has a graceful bay window and room for a large dining table and chairs.
And the kitchen?  Check out the original porcelain sink that has been reglazed to a like-new finish.



The new cabinets provide lots of storage and are topped with with quartz to provide a hard wearing surface.  The custom touches abound - from the stove hood to the reclaimed lumber island top and open shelving.
And best of all, there is a large pantry to store everything you need.

Need a home office?  This front room provides a quiet place to get some work done, while enjoying lots of sunshine, through the windows around the perimeter of the room.

The first floor boasts two bedrooms, if you want one floor living.
The second bedroom has space for a home office or twin bedroom set.


 There is also a full bath, with carrara marble floors and custom built-in storage.

The most dramatic change in on the second floor.  The starting point was this unfinished attic.
Second Floor - Before















But that has all changed!  Thanks in large part to a new dormer and lots of reframing.

The all new second floor has two bedrooms, a loft and bathroom.

The large, spa like bathtub includes a freestanding soaking tub, to relax at the end of a hectic day.

But also a large shower, for those that prefer one.
The vanity and built ins provide lots of storage.  

The barn doors are a real focal point in the master bedroom.




And check out the views of the Portland skyline.  They're even better in the winter, when you can see the water as well.

The house has a large, dry basement with a laundry space, a built in work bench and lots of storage.  There is also an attached one car garage, that's a real luxury in a Maine winter.

The large, lush landscaped property is on almost a quarter of an acre.  There are beautiful plantings, which provide beautiful color all season long.  And it's low maintenance, thanks to a built in irrigation system and established perennial plants.




And don't forget energy efficiency.  The new second floor has energy efficient foam insulation and the original first floor has blown in insulation.  All windows are high efficiency.  And the gas furnace is also energy efficient.  

What else is included?  An alarm system which monitors smoke, security and low temperatures, so you can leave town with no worries.  

And of course you can walk to Willard Square, the beach, Spring Point and Bug Light lighthouses and the Greenbelt, so you can walk or bicycle everywhere!

This property is listed at $470,000.
