Featuring hardwood floors, an updated kitchen and bathroom and a fireplace in the living room, this tidy home is laid out on one level with a detached one-car garage. There’s also a fabulous deck overlooking the private back yard. As for the “nuts and bolts,” you’ll find a recently updated roof, newer windows, and an economical, natural gas heating system.

St. Joseph is a dead-end street right across from Evergreen Cemetery, which is also a park with over 230 acres of walking trails, ponds, and forest. Two blocks away is Mayor Baxter Woods, another popular park for dog-walking. Stevens Square Community Center is a new use development on the old St. Joseph’s convent campus—the namesake for this home’s street. Further down Stevens Ave, or over on Forest Ave. and Morrills Corner, find restaurants, grocers, gyms, medical services, mechanics, and more.

Whether a simple starter or delightful downsizer, this is the perfect home in a great neighborhood for anyone looking to live in Portland.

17 St. Joseph Street is listed by Tom and Julia Ranello, who say, “We love where we live!” Call them at 207-838-1651 or email ranellogroup@gmail.com.
