Designed by architect C. William Burlin, this spectacular Shingle-style home showcases architectural antiques from the early 1900s, including a marble fireplace, stained and beveled glass panels, pocket doors, mahogany columns, and brass chandeliers. This home is located in a desirable cul-de-sac neighborhood, on the north side of Fort Hill with panoramic views of the valley and the White Mountains beyond. You will enjoy simply breathtaking sunsets from your deck and many rooms of this special home and on clear weather days, amazing views of Mt Washington. Placed thoughtfully on the property's highest elevation, this home is oriented to capture natural light all day during every season. Take in the beauty of the outdoors from the large picture windows, expansive deck, screened porch or stone terrace. Three living areas and an open floor plan provide flexibility to entertain a large group or host an intimate gathering. Another unique amenity is the lower level 1 BR in-law/guest apartment with kitchen and full bath. The spacious eat in kitchen, w/terra cotta tiled floor, features both a Butler's and food pantry, a welcoming woodstove and direct access to family room, deck and screened porch. Currently used as a game room where you can play billiards on a regulation size pool table (existing pool table negotiable), the bonus family room is also plumbed for another bath and kitchen. Fully sized workshop will please the most serious woodworker or could be converted to an indoor play area or exercise space. The 3 acre parcel has plenty of space out front for outdoor sports during all seasons and the private back yard is the perfect sanctuary for gardening or relaxing with a good book while sipping your favorite beverage. Just a few minutes to Gorham Center and an easy commute to the Jetport, Maine Mall & Portland you can enjoy a lifestyle where you can experience the beauty of Maine without sacrificing conveniences - the way life should be!
