Love at first sight on Lexington Avenue! The smile-inducing, mood boosting character and charm of this 3 bedroom, 1 bath Portland home will light up your life. From whimsical stained glass windows to built-ins, light fixtures & wood floors, darling details are a delight at every turn. The welcoming, fully-windowed front porch is perfect for soaking in summer morning sunshine, hot coffee in hand. Cooking, chatting and cheerful meals are effortless in the perfectly positioned kitchen and dining room. A sweet sitting room next to the kitchen inspires book reading and tea drinking, and holds potential for updating to include a half bath. Unwinding is easy in the comfort of the simultaneously spacious and cozy living room. Three beautiful bedrooms - all perched on wide-plank pine floors - and a full bath make the second floor a sweet spot for sleep, work or artistic endeavors. Bring your imagination to the third floor attic, where the opportunity to create even more magical living space awaits! Flower gardens galore are a feast for the eyes in the fully fenced backyard, all of which you can enjoy from the petite garden patio or the deck, seamlessly accessed from the dining room. You won't want to venture away from this lovable abode - but when you do, a friendly neighborhood and the vibrant city of Portland is at your fingertips. Restaurants, shopping and entertainment options are abundant, with proximity to anything your heart desires. Memories-in-the-making are yours for the taking at this truly enchanting home!
