WESTBROOK – Plenty of space. Abundant light. All kinds of charm. This 1855 Greek Revival farmhouse, near the Falmouth town line and very handy to intown Portland, offers these qualities and many more.

Expanded to 2,800 square feet, south-facing, and retaining plenty of vintage character, the home sits behind a pair of terraced stone walls, and vigorous gardens with potential for creating stunning perennial displays. Between sidelights, a handsome eight-panel front door opens into a long, oak-floored living room whose brick, wood-burning fireplace has a stunning dentil-molding mantel. To the rear, the two-section dining room has a beautiful built-in china closet, and opens out to a two-level deck with a hot tub and bench seating.

The large, dine-in kitchen has “country” flavor, a wood stove on a brick hearth, and a four-burner gas range with a griddle. Off the nearby mudroom are a pretty powder room and a big laundry room with French doors at each end.

Up central stairs, the two good-sized bedrooms, back and front on the east side, are served by a full bath. In the opposite wing, a spacious office/study leads into the master suite, whose huge bedroom has lovely green-shaded privacy, an ornate Parlor stove on a brick hearth, and end windows framed by exposed timbers. The tiled master bath has both an oval, jetted tub, beneath a skylight; and a soaking tub. The suite also has a private staircase accessing the garage.

The home at 482 Brook St., Westbrook, is listed for sale at $329,000 by Garry and Jane Smith of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage (Baxter Boulevard, Portland office). Annual taxes are $4,413.

Please note that an Open House will be held from noon to 2 p.m. on Sunday, Aug. 14.
