    Description

    Former home of National Poet Laureate and Pulitzer Prize winning poet Richard Wilbur; this genteel and private compound built in 1869 sits on 2.43 quiet, wooded acres yet is still in walking distance to the Village District of Main Street Portland. The main home is a grand 3,995 square foot, two-story colonial with soaring 10-foot ceilings. This property is appointed with 4 large bedrooms, 3 bathrooms, a 3-season room, a formal office, chefs kitchen, a butlers pantry, a separate dry pantry, and laundry room. The outdoor space includes two wrap-around exterior porches, two-car garage, an outdoor fire pit and plenty of space to relax. The current owners meticulously restored this home to its original grandeur. Three of the eight fireplaces are connected to gas heat. The top (third) floor is a separate 2-bedroom, 1 bath in-law with an exterior entrance which adds an additional 1,200 square feet of living space. Close to major highways, shopping, golf courses and attractions, this home still feels like you are living in the country. The property is zoned R15; it can be used as a Bed & Breakfast amongst many other uses. Property is available to be sold fully furnished if the buyer desires. Own a piece of history where Robert Frost was a frequent guest and Captain Josiah J. White ran his prominent shipping company in the late 1800s with partner Henry Goodspeed. Agent related to owner.
