Come discover the historic magnificence of this Colonial-Revival style home built on Portland's Western Promenade. Built in 1903 for Adam P. Leighton, a successful businessman considered ''the father of the American postcard'' and later mayor of Portland, this elegant property has been carefully restored and boasts original architectural details including ornate moldings, wainscotting, high ceilings, grand bay windows and six custom finished fireplaces. Enter through the stained glass front door and you are greeted with more stained glass windows, all featuring the Leighton family crest. Explore over 6,000 square feet of living space including 9 bedrooms and 6 bathrooms. Imagine relaxing with a book in the stately black walnut library, or perhaps make it the ultimate home office. Entertain in the front parlor bathed in the glow of the sunset over the Western Prom, before adjourning for a game of pool in the billiard room. Enjoy a cocktail in the sitting room while surrounded by a mural reported to be done by John Calvin Stevens, and you feel like you are stepping back in time. A trip through the butler's pantry to an updated kitchen with modern amenities brings you back to the present day. Upstairs the elegant master bedroom has a sitting room, walk-in closet, full bath and private porch deck. They didn't dream of the convenience of second floor laundry in 1903, you won't have to.
