Portsmouth cottage description

Located in Portsmouth's historic South End, on the local's favorite 7 mile coastline running loop, this is the seaside cottage you're looking for with the added bonus of being within walking distance to all of downtown's attractions. This 160 year old Greek Revival Cape has been lovingly restored from top to bottom over the last nine years. With three bedrooms, two full baths, an open floor-plan and spacious kitchen, your family will be very comfortable on an extended vacation. The spacious decks (including a hammock with water views on the second floor reading porch), fenced in yard and easy access to the water make it an ideal spot for hanging out. Park your car in the driveway and plan on walking or biking everywhere. This house has location, location, location and tons of charm.

                          Location

                          Portsmouth is the ultimate summer and fall getaway for those who want to experience the best New England has to offer. Situated at the northernmost point of NH's small share of the Atlantic coastline it has the feel of your favorite small Maine coastal town with the restaurants, shopping, and attractions you enjoy in your favorite city. Portsmouth is heaven for those that love being on the water or on a bike. The White Mountains are only about 1.5 hours away if you prefer elevation. Come see why many folks choose to stay here vs. crossing over the bridge to Maine!

                           

                          Owner info

                          Year Purchased: 2003

                          About the owner: I am a young professional who travels the world working to improve the environmental sustainability of the supply chains that provide our apparel and footwear. When I'm not traveling, I share this home with 'Pilot', my Portuguese Water Dog. I have spent the last nine plus years lovingly restoring this house from the foundation up with my Dad. This home is my dream home and I'm thrilled to share it with those who are equally charmed by it.

                          Why the Owner Chose Portsmouth:
                          - Location! Location! Location! You cannot beat the access to water and downtown. Leave your car parked in the driveway -- you won't need it. - Charm - if you are a fan of Coastal Living Magazine, you will love this home. - Ammenities - There's a great fenced in yard for your dog and an outdoor living room with lawn games for your family. Watersports are steps away. Rainy days aren't a problem. The house has cable and wifi, games, and a fireplace to keep you cozy and entertained. Shopping (including outlet shopping), theaters, museums, and movies are within a 5-10 minute drive. - Access for sports and recreation: If you are a runner you will love the 7 mile coastline loop that this house sits on. SUP and kayaking is a stone's through away. Nearby New Castle beach is great for swimming or relaxing.
