Harding Commercial Real Estate is excited to bring this unique and beautiful historic property to market. Named for its original owner the “Gilbert Stancliff House” is one of two side by side octagonal homes in Portland that makeup the last remaining pair in the state of Connecticut. The building’s distinctive architecture was constructed using brownstone from Portland’s historic brownstone quarries nearby. Portland is an idyllic Connecticut town with all the nearby amenities of a big city but all of the charm of a small town. The property has been updated and maintained meticulously by the physicians that have operated their successful practice and lived there for many years. The 4,824 square foot structure is divided into a medical office complete with an x-ray room on the first floor and a beautiful apartment on the second floor. There is also a cupola with a beautiful view atop the building as well as additional space on the partial third floor and full basement that is not included in the square footage noted. The large driveway offers parking for upwards of 20 vehicles on the 0.71 acre lot. The property would be ideal for someone looking for a convenient and environmentally friendly live/work situation. The spacious apartment upstairs is approximately 1,900 square feet in size and was fully remodeled in 2017. With the high demand for quality rentals in the area the gorgeous apartment could just as easily be rented to begin producing income soon after a sale with little to no work. The upstairs apartment could also be converted to additional office space, giving the owner the opportunity to grow their business to almost double in size without the need to move. The office area is approximately 2,912 square feet and would be perfectly suited for another medical office, a law firm, an accounting firm or any other business that would enjoy the building’s ample charm as well as its high visibility on the heavily trafficked Route 66 in Portland. The neighboring octagonal home, the “Joseph Williams House” was converted to a 4 family apartment house years ago making that yet another possible use for the structure. This captivating historic property is priced to sell and we are expecting a lot of interest so don’t wait to set up a showing.
