Rare Opportunity to own one of Portland's finest historic John Calvin Stevens homes, Circa 1902. The Horace F. Farnham house has been lovingly preserved with intricate details from 4 fireplaces, 2 of which are terracotta tile, intricate parquet flooring, amber quarter-sawn wainscoting, birds-eye and tiger maple woodwork throughout, to the stained glass windows and original solid brass fixtures. With over 6000sf of wondrous space this home offers a breathtaking open great room which lets in warm natural sunlight from Sunrise to Sunset. It is fabulous for entertaining yet cozy when not. The two front parlors are perfect for a home office and library/conference room with a separate entrance off Brighton Ave and access to a half bath which can be closed off from the main home. Updates include a custom Kennebec Kitchen, new marble tiled bathroom off the primary bedroom, two efficient 6 year old natural gas fired furnaces, slate roof restoration, chimney repointing, Bradbury and Bradbury art wallpaper and formal landscaping. Currently being used as a 2 family but if desired, could easily be converted to a single family again (see MLS 1576576 )
Some furnishings included. Broker owned and occupied Unit 1.
