This is West End Inn.
This beautiful inn was designed by John Calvin Stevens and constructed in 1871. The townhouse-style building was originally purchased by Freedom Nash, a local stove dealer, and is rich in original architectural detail. It remained a private residence until 1984 when it was converted to a bed and breakfast.
The West End Inn proudly sits within Portland’s prestigious West End, a residential neighborhood renowned for its brick-lined avenues, historic architecture and refined character. Just two blocks from the Inn, the graceful Western Promenade boasts Olmsted-designed walkways and grand western views across Maine to the White Mountains of New Hampshire and beyond.
The impeccably maintained Victorian architecture of West End Inn is on strong display in the common dining and sitting rooms. Original details include twelve-foot ceilings adorned with anthemia medallions and large picture windows overlooking serene Pine and Neal Streets. The décor fully complements the Inn’s innate architectural beauty with contemporary style.
Within short walking distance of the inn are excellent restaurants, shops and Portland’s vibrant Arts District and the Portland Museum of Art. Walking from the Inn to the Old Port District takes about 20 minutes.
There are 6 guest rooms (one with a private deck), a lovely dining room and sitting room with fireplace. The chic decor is both eye catching and relaxing.
This is a buyer's opportunity to live in a vibrant, thriving and ever growing town and become immersed in all that Portland has to offer.
