178 Longfellow Street

Sweet Convenience

Originally known as Saccarappa after Saccarappa Falls on the Presumpscot River, 

Westbrook was part of Falmouth until February 14, 1814 when it was set off and incorporated as Stroudwater. It soon changed its name to Westbrook after Colonel Thomas Westbrook, a commander during Father Rale's War and King's mast agent who was an early settler and mill operator. In 1871, Saccarappa amicably split into two municipalities; the current City of Westbrook and Deering, which was then annexed by Portland in 1898. In 1891 Westbrook was incorporated as a City. - Westbrook Chamber of Commerce. 

Westbrook is very convenient to Portland as it is right next door! And you certainly can get more for you money here as is evidenced by this sweet home on Longfellow Street.  

The Perfect Starter Home

...or downsizer. Sunny Longfellow Street is home to many cared for homes, tended yards, and this pleasing 3 bedroom home at #178. The driveway is a good length that brings this home further off the road. You are first greeted by some pretty Impatiens and landscaping. The home was originally built in 1895, but there have been many updates since then! The entry way brings you to one wing of the home where you have a family room, a large office, and a half bath. There are also sliders to one of the two decks! Bamboo floors throughout the first floor add to the warmth and consistency of space. As you move to the other 'wing' of the home, you will find another living room space that is sandwiched between the dining area and the kitchen. This way, everyone is together, yet there is space to spread out! The kitchen is great. Ample cabinetry, Corian counter tops, a pantry, and a lovely view of the back yard over the sink make this kitchen a happy place! Come cook here!

Upstairs you will find 3 good sized bedrooms, a full bath, and storage space. So often in homes of this age, there is no place to store your stuff. This home does have good closets, plus a clean basement for your storage needs.  There is a special on the second floor - a cozy 'nook' space at the top of the stairs. This makes a great playroom, reading area, smaller office space, or whatever your heart desires!
