211 Maryland Ave.
An updated mid-century modern home with a view!
This updated 1959 tri-level home is more than move-in ready--it's party-ready! It's a perfect blend of expansive living and entertaining area and intimate private space
Through the front door you have a bright entryway, with space for coats, hats, and boots, which leads back to the enclosed porch (more on that later), up to the living area, or down to the bedrooms.
The grand living room will knock your socks off! Its cathedral ceiling, hardwood floors, exposed beams, and wall of windows combine to give the space an unmatched character.
Running the full width of the house, this space is large enough to include a spacious dining area as well, and at one time the current owner had a grand piano on that side of the room.
The wall of windows faces west over Manchester, so every evening you'll receive the gift of a sunset.

Between the great room and the kitchen there's a convenient half bath...
The kitchen overlooks the back deck and yard, and has plenty of cabinet space, although there's also a pantry closet right around the corner.
Opposite the kitchen is the perfect dining room, although the current owner uses it as a separate sitting room.
The door behind the rocking chair opens to the deck--a great spot for outdoor dinner parties; and from the deck you can access the patio below...
While we're on the subject of entertaining spaces, here is the huge three-season porch off the back of the garage--accessible directly from the first floor entryway, and with doors off either side to the patio or the yard.
The owner intended to create a space like an Irish pub, hence the Gaelic decoration on the ceiling.
Back inside and headed downstairs you'll find the three bedrooms, full bath, and laundry/storage area--slightly below grade and sheltered from the hubbub.
The two front rooms are fairly large, and one includes a long span of built-in shelving--the perfect office for the no-nonsense entrepreneur!
The smaller of the three bedrooms features a custom-designed recessed ceiling...
The full bathroom downstairs
At the back of the lower level is perhaps the cleanest laundry and furnace room you've ever seen! The addition of some shelves would provide extra storage space if you need it.
The garage was originally designed as a one-car garage, but the current owner added a wider door and can maneuver two cars in if necessary, but there's plenty of room on either side for shelving units, or a workbench, or a spot for motorcycles or kayaks.
Conveniently located between Hanover Street and Bridge Street Extension, you have easy access to I-93, and you're just around the corner from Derryfield Country Club, with its golf course and cross-country ski trails, and not far from Elliot Hospital.
