We love a classic, 1940s-era Cape, especially when it has as great a location as Stanwood Park in South Portland. It’s a little neighborhood filled with cul-de-sacs, right nearby the city recreation center, community pool, high school and elementary school. There’s also easy access to the Greenbelt, a multi-use trail that takes you to Bug Light and the Willard Beach area in one direction and then all the way to Kittery as the Eastern Trail in the other. Downtown Portland is ten minutes by car.

This bright and sunny home has been loved by the same family for over 60 years. With hardwood floors and built-ins throughout, the layout is enhanced by a rear sunporch and two bedrooms on the first floor. Vinyl replacement windows and a two-year-old natural gas heating system make sure the energy envelope is up to date. Being situated on a corner lot gives it wide views and lots of landscaping opportunities. The detached, oversized garage has extra storage room.

It’s a great home for anyone wanting to set down roots in Southern Maine. We’ll be holding an open house this Sunday, Nov 20 from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. We hope to see you there.
