                          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 ten 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.
