    …and the “eyes” have it. Gotta love the street name. Nice, clean little property.

    The dramatic b&w portrait sure looks like Louise Nevelson. She did have a very particular, strikingly remarkable visage.

      I’m thinking it is an opera singer. Louise would have a more severe hairstyle, in my humble estimation. However, the house is adorable. Makes me shiver a bit looking at all that snow, but still lovely.

        I think it’s Joan Sutherland, Australian soprano. She had a strong jawline and long dark hair often worn smoothed close to the head. A wonderful voice from late 50’s to 80’s. World famous.

          Well spotted! Opera is my “Jeopardy” Achilles heal. Both striking women to be sure; but Dame Joan Sutherland it decidedly is. Thanks’ for saying so! http://goo.gl/mFweot

        Pretty sure it’s Dame Joan Sutherland.

        This is a great place to recreate, Summer or Winter so near to skiing and lakes and rivers.

    What a lovely cottage! Now if only I lived in Portland!

    Love these Maine vacation homes and I am a sucker for wood stoves and fireplaces. Wish they weren’t quite as high. Sigh.

    Good call on those of you that noticed the Joan Sutherland photo (this is actually my house and not only am I a classically trained singer, but I’m also a Joan Sutherland nut!!). The house is only about an hour from Portland, two hours from Boston and just a mile to the Stone Mountain Arts Center:

    Thanks for the nice comments, btw – it is indeed a sweet little house!

    This place looks like HOME to me! I love everything about it.

    it is lovely, looks cozy, warm and comfortable. Theres a bedroom door that caught my attention, it looks like its either made of several different kinds of wood or was it painted?
