New kid in town.
When a sophisticated Portland developer was ready to put roots down, he chose scenic Munjoy Hill for his new family home. A multi-unit with two apartments, the second floor is rented while the third and fourth floors are reserved for the owner and family. At the start of the project, city codes and historic building regulations presented challenges for the new building, but smart compromise and attention to detail made way for a stunning design.
A Portland overlook.
Sweeping ocean views were the focal point in planning each level. Floor-to-ceiling windows offer sweeping views of the Eastern Promenade, not only showcasing Casco Bay but introducing natural light throughout. On a clear day, from the west side of the building, Mount Washington can be seen in the distance. Front-facing decks and a functional rooftop create plenty of added space for entertaining.
Maintaining privacy and the intimacy of a home, both apartments have separate entryways and a private staircase. The staircase extends from the street-level front door up to the third floor—residents can enter from the street or through the garage. Though based in the heart of a long-established Portland neighborhood, the modern building strikes a balance between contemporary and classic design elements.
