Situated a short walk from Portland’s scenic Western Promenade, this brick manor boasts major curb appeal. The West End residence dates back to 1895, and brims with original, one-of-a-kind details like intricately carved doors, bannisters, and mantels.

Stained glass windows let lights of every hue into an already colorful home. For all its whimsical touches, the place balances modern updates, too, like a remodeled kitchen with several pantries, a gas range with double ovens, soapstone countertops, and custom cabinets. Outside, a wraparound porch overlooks a reasonably large yard with a garden, plus a one-car garage.
