WESTBROOK – How often do you see stained-glass windows in a garage?

Not every day, certainly. But there are two here, one front and one back in the detached, daylight garage that comes with this delightful, vintage, brick bungalow. Built in 1923, the home sits on a quiet, dead-end street within easy walking distance of downtown and all conveniences, and it has been completely renovated over the past few months.

Those windows are but one example of the classic character that has been carefully retained during the upgrade, and also enhanced by improvements such as the shining new kitchen with its granite surfaces and stainless appliances including a five-burner gas range.

East-facing, the home receives excellent light through all-new windows, and is warmed almost as if of passive solar design, especially on the enclosed front porch / sun room.

Floors, where not newly carpeted, are maple or pine. The living room features a brick, wood-burning fireplace with a very handsome mantel. A wide pass-through opens from the kitchen to the dining room, which has a lovely, built-in china cabinet.

Across the center hall, two good-sized bedrooms are served by a full bath with tub. The back bedroom has a daylight, step-in closet.

Off the kitchen, a stairway rises to a second story that was once the attic but is now a back-to-front, dormered-out master suite, which increases the home’s total square footage to 1,680. Its back room can serve as a dressing room or office. Past the full bath, the bright bedroom is large enough for a sitting area as well as a king-size bed set into the dormer.

The full basement is essentially daylight and has good ceiling height, so creating finished space is an option.

The home at 21 State St., Westbrook, is listed for sale at $254,900 by Terry Bragdon Fletcher of Regency Realty Group in South Portland. Annual taxes are $3,408 (2016).
