Constructed by innovative architect John Calvin Stevens in 1902, the Horace F. Farnham house is on the market for $1.85 million in Portland, Maine. Listing details: Rare opportunity to own one of Portland’s finest historic John Calvin Stevens homes, circa 1902. The Horace F Farnham house, sheathed in pink slate, has been lovingly preserved and maintained with intricate details from parquet flooring, amber oak wainscoting, birds-eye and tiger maple woodwork throughout, to the stained glass windows and original fixtures. With over 6,000 square feet of wondrous space, this home offers a breathtaking open great room that lets in warm natural sunlight from Sunrise to Sunset. It is fabulous for entertaining yet cozy when not.
The two front parlors are perfect for a home office and library/conference room with a separate entrance off Brighton Ave and access to a half bath, which can be closed off from the main home. Thoughtfully updated to keep with the historic period, a custom Kennebec Kitchen was added as well as a new marble tiled bathroom off the primary bedroom.

Converted to a two-family in 1998, it was completed with the historic integrity of the structure in mind which can easily be used as a single-family if desired(see MLS# 1520753 ). Some furnishings included. Broker Owned. The stunning Horace F. Farnham house is on the market for $1.85 million with Elizabeth Dubois of Bean Group.
