Portland, Maine, has played the part of the mythical Phoenix more than once. Leveled by the “Great Fire” of 1866, the facade of the buildings you see there today reflect the rebuilding efforts of the late 1800s.

Today, the city is once again reborn—this time as a mecca for artists, foodies, and makers of all sorts. Textile and furniture designer Angela Adams, design duo Wary Meyers, James Beard award winners Rob Evans and Sam Hayward, and author Annie Proulx all call Portland home.

Portland’s neighborhoods include the Arts District, where former department stores have been reimagined as galleries and boutiques, the historic waterfront of Old Port, and the East and West Ends of town. There are also the islands of Casco Bay, some of which are technically part of the city.

This 1900s home on Peaks Island, offered by Brianne O’Donnell of The Swan Agency Sotheby’s International Realty, combines the history of the region with eclectic flair. Just 669 square feet, the completely remodeled home features a wood stove, indoor swing, colorful accents, and beachfront location for early morning surf sessions.

We love how the blend of old and new—from the concrete kitchen counters to the porthole window—captures the spirit of Portland. (And the view doesn’t hurt.)
