Take the private elevator to 156 Sheridan St.’s top unit and enter one of the city’s finest properties. It’s a perfect, Portland life here, surrounded by views of downtown, sparkling Back Cove, Mount Washington and, from certain perches, Casco Bay.

The full, five-unit structure is positioned on Munjoy Hill’s 45-degree western slope. With broad exposure from east to west, this walnut-floored home is beholden to daylight. Along with a Thermador range and Sub-Zero refrigerator, home chefs and entertainers will love the walk-in pantry and the large, eat-in island that opens to the dining and living area.

Unit 3A has three bedrooms, two-and-a-half bathrooms, and the property has an additional guest studio apartment with full bath and separate entrance.

Outside, the private, 2,000 SF deck is the size of a backyard, with room to garden, relax, exercise and sit by the gas fireplace. A marine ladder leads to the rooftop solar farm with more square footage to expand decking. Right down the block is Washington Avenue’s restaurant row, then breweries and grocery stores further down the slope to Bayside. On the other side of the hill is the Eastern Promenade. This home is simply a crown jewel.
