Hampton cottage description

This little cottage is directly on the ocean at prestigious Plaice Cove and North Beach. It has been updated for comfort and convenience, but the ambiance created over the past sixty years, and five generations, has not been changed. The presence of the ocean is everywhere. Hear the sound of the waves, taste the salt spray, see the sun and the full moon as they crawl out of the ocean and be at peace. Walk from the deck onto the beach and, sometimes, be the only one on the beach. Comfortable and cozy but very 'workable'. The fully equipped kitchen will please the best of cooks (on a small scale), and the deck will serve a group of day-visitors. This little house is 'getting away' without really being very far away from anything. This is one of those places where, once you are there, you never want to leave.

Winter Rentals: Many have expressed interest in winter rental. The Little House is not winterized and is closed from mid October until late April. Only the main room has a bit of heat, and the water has to be shut off for the winter.

                      Direct ocean-front cottage just far enough away to miss the hustle and bustle of Hampton Beach, but not so far to miss its activities. It's a twenty minute drive to Historic Portsmouth or Kittery's Outlet Malls to the North and quaint Newburyport to the South. One hour ride to the airport, either Boston or Manchester. Beware, this addictive location makes you want to go nowhere! From the living room you can watch the sun or the full moon crawl out of the ocean. Walk out the door, over the rocks, and down onto the beach...into the water at high tide.

                      Other Activities: Paddle Boards can be rented

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 1946

                      About the owner: The Little House was built by my grandfather in 1946, and five generations have enjoyed the property. He built the 'Big House', to the South, in 1905. We have worked very hard to keep the ambiance of the cottage as we have updated the interior and exterior.

                      Why the Owner Chose Hampton:
                      My grandfather chose the property after driving from Seabrook to Wallis Sands at the turn of the century. New Hampshire has just a 32 mile seacoast, so this property is truly unique.

                      The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
                      The unique location at Plaice Cove is a huge benefit. There is a small beach right in front of the house so that children can be monitored from the deck. There are wonderful tidal pools in which they can play.
