The Motherhouse at Baxter Woods is the first building in the multi-phase redevelopment of the Sisters of Mercy site located in Portland’s Deering Center Neighborhood. Originally built in 1906, the Motherhouse at 605 Stevens Avenue was closed in 2005 due to a dwindling number of Sisters living at the nearly 116,000 square foot property located on 18.98 acres.
The original grand stairways, stained glass windows, three story chapel with altar and grand organ, have been restored and preserved, while surrounding areas of the building have been redeveloped into 88 apartments for adults 55 years of age and older. Every studio and one bedroom apartment has a unique view and layout.
The Motherhouse at Baxter Woods has two elevators, an onsite library, community room, two laundry rooms and sitting areas throughout. An onsite Resident Service Coordinator is available three days a week to help link tenants with services and coordinate onsite health and wellness programs.
Tours are currently available every Friday at 9am and 11am and Wednesdays at 4pm. For a private tour or more leasing information please call 207-772-3225.
