The Dr. True House

Look beyond the exterior of this stately home, and you'll be absolutely delighted to discover its beautifully restored interior--it's magnificent.

The 1st floor of the historic 'Dr. True House' offers a new kitchen with quarter-sawn oak reproduction cabinetry; cast iron sink; tin ceiling; and convenient passthrough for transferring dishes to the dining room. Gorgeous, original pocket doors in fine working order provide the opportunity to keep the living and dining rooms open or separate. Inviting living room with wood-burning fireplace & stunning tin ceiling. 1st floor primary bedroom with gas stove & full bathroom. A powder room conveniently tucked away by the formal entryway completes the 1st floor.

The 2nd floor is accessed via a grand staircase in pristine condition, with original newel post and balusters. Here, you'll find 3 spacious bedrooms: one has direct access to a full bathroom; and another offers sweeping views of the city skyline & direct access to a powder room. The unfinished attic on the 3rd floor offers unobstructed river views through large windows & a rare antique roof lantern that offers an abundance of natural light--a great opportunity to expand/convert to an office, art studio, etc.

Daylight walkout basement for storage and/or a workshop. Replacement windows throughout the 1st and 2nd floors. 1st floor laundry. Detached garage with space above, and below. Price reflects the need for new exterior siding on the house & garage.

Flexible zoning in T-4.2 (fka DEZ) provides opportunities for conversion to a multi-unit dwelling, or commercial property. (See attachments to the Property Disclosure FMI re permitted uses). Live or work from this prime location and enjoy the benefits of being downtown near Festival Plaza, and the Riverwalk which meanders by the Androscoggin River and provides beautiful views of the Twin Cities, gardens, & outdoor art.
