The living room is bright and includes those sought-after built-ins. A beautiful center stairwell leads you up to matching bedrooms on either side that offer enough space and natural light. Within the 1 acre lot, the property boasts a large 2 bay, 2 story, garage along with a decent sized yard to enjoy during every season. Centrally located to Lewiston/Auburn, Lisbon, Brunswick & Freeport. Just around the corner from the Get & Go. Come take a look for yourself!

    Build date is late, the exterior details say Greek Revival but the interior I’m not so sure. The staircase looks older than the Greek Revival exterior although maybe it’s not, I’m terrible at these Colonial to early Greek Revival transitionals.

    Wow, wasn’t expecting to see that lovely & rather elegant stairway!

    The staircase, I also was not expecting, is to die for. I grew up in a house that was built in 1836, so I’m always drawn to the simplicity of homes that date to that era.

    The staircase is particularly nice and a bit unexpected. But I love the pinball machine too! As equally unexpected and nice in a completely different way. Perfect that it was the last photo too.

    The staircase is nice but I can’t quite stop laughing. Realtor description says “Step through the front door”. Based on the pictures presented I can’t quite figure how that could be possible given the current landscaping situation. Anyway, I do like the pinball machine as well.

    I do hope someone gets ahold of this gem SOON, before more water damage occurs. I would buy it for the “good morning” staircase alone. I agree it’s earlier than what is stated. Be a satisfying project…..could be a very beautiful cottage.

    Thanks, Kelly, for giving me three to covet today…!

    This house was built in the 1820’s, then remodeled about 25 years later.
    A duplicate example in Durham belongs to a friend of mine.
    The most interesting about the staircase is what you don’t see:
    The “good morning” style stair allowed them to have both a center chimney & central hall.
    The chimney stack was originally visible behind the 2nd story back railing.
    A really wonderful architectural idea – hope the buyer appreciates it.

    Thanks for the comment Les. I knew you’d be the one to clarify the date on this one. Does the chimney stack, fireplace (s) remain in your friend’s house? Be fun (and expensive) to reconstruct it. Looking at the street view, it looks even sadder than the posted photo. Sits nicely up off the road though. I hope someone knowledgable tackles it…!!
