Portland Maine has lots to offer with its superb location on Casco Bay, the vibrant arts community, colorful Old Port area with many shops and outstanding restaurants. We also have many distinct neighborhoods with many fine examples of Victorian architecture. Combine that with our relative safety, walkability, and environmentalism and you have a great place to live.
Portland often makes "best of" lists and has done so again from This Old House magazine. The Deering Center neighborhood has been noted as one of the Best Old House Neighborhoods in the Northeast. Homes in good to excellent condition sell in the $200,000 to $500,000 range. You can find homes that have many of the original features including, fireplaces, built-ins, fine moldings, turrets, etc.
