Enjoy the rural landscape of farms and pristine beaches, while being only 6 miles away from the vibrancy of downtown Portland. This 1800's farmhouse, with 2.3 acres, has been updated and modernized while not losing its original character. You'll love the wide plank pine floors and 9'+ ceilings that preserve this home's sense of history. In addition to the beauty of the original home, more living space and a new two car garage were added in 2019. The combination of this new space, which is perfect for a home office or an extended family member, adds so much flexibility to the type of living arrangements you can create. The main house has a large living room with built-ins and fireplace. A formal dining area, office space, half bath and beautiful farm kitchen round out the first floor. Off the kitchen, a screened porch adds more living/dining space in warm weather. The second floor has four rooms and two baths, one of them ensuite. The new addition is attached to the main house, but also has a farmhouse porch gracing a separate entrance. The stone foyer welcomes you to an open living/dining area with a full kitchenette. Heat pumps, built-in bookshelves, cabinets and a working gas fireplace make this space a modern interpretation of the main farmhouse. A spare room/office, full laundry area, and beautiful marble and glass bathroom complete the first floor. The entire finished second floor can be living space or a bedroom and includes a half bath as well as beautiful open closets and built-in storage. Unfinished space over the garage gives even more potential. This home is just a short distance away from two state parks, restaurants, town hall, shopping, and all the Cape Elizabeth highly ranked schools. This location and its environs will allow you to experience the best of what Maine has to offer; beautiful beaches, rocky coasts, lighthouses, fine dining, wooded trails and endless amenities for four seasons of living only minutes from Maine's largest city.
