Welcome to 226 Hope Avenue in Portland, where the city meets the country. This unique, 4 bedroom custom colonial sits at the very end of one the cities most sought after streets. As you pull down the driveway, you start to understand. You feel immersed in nature, without a neighbor in sight. You'll have to remind yourself you're just minutes from Portland's vibrant downtown and all it has to offer. Upon entering the home, you are welcomed by a custom-built mudroom with plenty of storage for all your outdoor gear. Off the mudroom, enter the kitchen and immediately notice the gleaming cherry floors that run throughout the home. The eat-in kitchen features a center island, floor-to-ceiling maple cabinets, and high-end stainless steel appliances. The layout options for the first floor are endless thanks to many rooms that could be used for the dining room, living room or den. The back side of the first flr consists of a warm, sunny dining area open to the kitchen and giving way to a year-round sunroom which could work great as an office, play area, or peaceful retreat. The upstairs features 4 bedrooms, including an expansive primary with two walk-in closets, a full bath with a double vanity, jacuzzi tub and a custom tiled steam shower. The finished basement, which is mostly above grade has a wet bar, full bath, gas fireplace, and plenty of space for a workout or play area. A sliding door leads out to the nicely landscaped, fenced-in backyard featuring a raised deck and patio overlooking the Presumpscot River Reserve which abuts your backyard on two sides. The reserve offers plenty of privacy and direct access to the renowned Portland Trails system. Walk or bike just minutes down the private trail accessed through the backyard to the River and let the dog go for a swim, or enjoy some of Southern Maine's best striped bass fishing in the spring. At the edge of nature, hear the cries of osprey and the rumble of the Presumpscot Falls and remember, you are still in Portland. ********
