Living On The Hill: Converting a House to 3 Units on Portland’s Munjoy Hill Project Begins & Continues

Munjoy Hill, formerly a blue collar neighborhood, is undergoing a renaissance and is now one of the hottest and most desirable areas of Portland. Two sisters raised in the house seek to make alterations and additions to convert the property from a single family to 3 separate units.

One unit at the Ground Floor will remain for use by the family and two rental units will occupy the upper floors taking advantage of views and sunlight as much as possible. Accomplishing the goal requires a complete gut, all new systems, and adding a new 3rd floor. Projecting decks and large glass area will make the units spectacular with view of Casco Bay, the islands, Portland’s waterfront, and the Fore River.
