Description of the Building: The subject property is a great example of a large attractive historic home converted to office space and that has been well maintained. Of note is the iconic front entry staircase that spirals up to the second floor without any apparent support. In February 1999, the Kennebec Historical Society moved into 61 Winthrop Street (built about 1811, and now known as the Johnson-Baker-Shelton House).

It was completely renovated in 1998 and is currently used as an office building. According to the city tax files the structure has a total of 8,264 SF with 4,287 SF of usable area. It is three stories, although the third story has just a small room currently used for IT purposes. The first floor is comprised of 3 private offices, one bathroom, a kitchenette, a conference room, and has 2 fireplaces. The second floor has a 2nd bathroom, 5 offices, and one additional fireplace. There is a second means of egress to the second floor with a front stairwell and a rear set of stairs. The carriage house has room for one vehicle but is best suited for storage on both levels. On the outside of the structure there are porches and patios. The property has attractive landscaping, fences, and flowerbeds.

Utilities: All public utilities are available to the subject site. These utilities
include telephone, electricity, cable, Internet, and public water and public sewer.

Parking and Surface Cover: The site is improved with 6750 square feet of paved parking area. It has entrances off Winthrop Street and Summer Street with ample parking in the lot off Summer Street. There is another driveway off Winthrop Street that leads to a carriage house with room for one vehicle, this could act as overflow parking if needed. There is also some limited Street parking.
