About Chelsi Christensen

I am the owner of an interior design company so feel confident this home is more than meets the eye. The images do not do it justice. This home is a very special place that I am excited to share with families traveling together. It offers a large indoor, heated pool, a sauna, Jacuzzi tub, a home theater room that can also be used for a meeting if anyone rents for a corporate retreat. There is a full kitchen, wet bar, lots of comfortable places to sleep and we are designing a beautiful spa bathroom for the master. There are 10 beautiful manicured acres for families to enjoy. We look forward to having you!

Chelsi Christensen purchased this house in 2017

Why Chelsi Christensen chose North Hampton

This beautiful property is located just 2 miles to the ocean and just minutes from downtown Portsmouth. The town of North Hampton has cute markets and shops to enjoy. There are tons of wonderful restaurants in the area as well. This home has a lot of history and will be fun for you to explore. Did you know Montgomery Ward used this home as his summer retreat?

What makes this house unique

This old historic home may have that old New England home charm, but offers so many modern amenities. It offers a large indoor, heated pool with radiant heated floors, a sauna, Jacuzzi tub, a home theater room that can also be used for a meeting / presentations if anyone rents for a corporate retreat. There is a full kitchen, wet bar, lots of comfortable places to sleep and we are designing a beautiful spa bathroom for the master.

The perfect group vacation home!

  • 5 of 5

This property was amazing! We had a large group that gets together for a special event each year, and for the first time we decided to expand out of hotels and all stay together. This property was incredible! The pool was awesome, the hot tub was great, the accommodations and amenities were more than adequate; this house was the highlight of our trip!

It also cannot be overstated how great the home owner was. She helped us sort out local needs and made some awesome recommendations. She was responsive to every need we had and always responded very quickly. I cannot say enough about how great Chelsi was with her organization, her messages, and her recommendations!

This was easily one of the best homes I've ever stated in! If you are looking for a great place that has it all, look no further!

Simply Perfect!

  • 5 of 5

Appledore Farm was the ultimate location for our family reunion. 5 families, kids included, and grandparents who stayed at a local hotel. So many highlights I don't know where to begin, and now so many sweet memories.

The house itself was sooo spacious, allowing for gathering/conversation in many different spots, both inside and out. While most of the action always happens in the kitchen, the living room(S), dining space, outdoor patio space and of course the pool were all comfortable and beautifully appointed. Plenty of quiet spaces to get away to for the introverts in the crowd

Kids loved the pool (actually, all of us did!), ping pong table, movie room (a little too much!) and the beautiful grounds! We set up a volleyball net, played soccer-golf, and orchestrated a photo scavenger hunt on the property which was a blast!

Bedrooms were comfortable (with plenty of air conditioning and fans) and spacious,, and of course, beautiful.

Chelsi was great to work with - even accomodating for a preview visit. She was easy to get ahold of and quick to respond...and has everything you need at the house: linens, grill/propane, pool towels, etc! Even ping pong balls!

The area offers beaches, a local outdoor skate park AND one of New England's best indoor skate parks, fun beach restraunts, and great walking/biking!

Would do it all again!

Wonderful home! We had 20 people from all over the US and England come together for a family reunion. The house was perfect. The property was lovely. The indoor pool was a huge hit. The owner was fantastic in every way possible. Could not have asked for a better experience.

You Won't Want To Miss This Home!

  • 5 of 5

This home is an absolute stunner full of wonderful gathering spaces, beautiful finishes, comfortable furniture and absolutely everything you're looking for to entertain groups big and small of any age. The home is as beautiful, if not more so, than the photos in the listing. I cannot share enough how much we loved spending the weekend in this home.

We initially struggled to find a home that could accommodate 21 people for a big birthday celebration so we were worried that the home might be a little smaller than it appeared in the pictures. However, our jaws hit the floor when we pulled up to the property and did our walk-through with Chelsi, the owner. Not only was the property gorgeous but it was HUGE. There were several gathering rooms (literally multiple dining and family rooms), actual beds for everyone to sleep in and more than enough bathrooms to ensure that you were never waiting for someone.

The property is immaculately maintained with charming benches scattered about, a fantastic outdoor entertainment area and plenty of grass to run around and play in. Immediately adjacent to the property is a conservation area which you can walk around in. The indoor pool got far more use than we had anticipated. Chelsi’s home has buckets of pool toys and noodles plus a diving board, so if you bring your own big floaties like we did, you can spend hours in there. There are just so many things to do here!

Chelsi herself was incredibly flexible, accommodating and friendly. She took the time to walk the whole house with us, which was necessary because it's enormous, showed us how to use the hot tub/pool cover & heater, suggested the fantastic converted barn space (not pictured) to use for our gigantic dinners and even shared some of the history of the home. The remodeling Chelsi did last year has made this home feel brand new while incorporating the unique original features – it does not disappoint. She also has Sonos speakers throughout the main floor so everywhere you went there was music playing which is always great for celebrations!

There are absolutely no complaints about this home, only rave reviews. We only wish we lived on the East Coast so that we could find an excuse to come back to Chelsi’s home. We are so grateful for the opportunity to stay in such an amazing place and would suggest you don’t miss out on staying there too!

Family Fun at its Finast!

  • 5 of 5

An absolutely amazing property that made for an absolutely amazingly good time! Our family group of 20 people enjoyed every minute of our one week stay at the house. The grounds are beautiful and well kept and the privacy of it can't be beat! There is plenty to do nearby, Portsmouth, good dining, the beaches, boat cruises, brewery tours, shopping and more. But it was even more fun to stay home and enjoy the house and vast grounds. We played played baseball, kickball, soccer, croquet, fished in the pond, went hiking on the trails, and we even flew kites! And if it rained it was not a problem, it was "everybody into the pool!" So much fun to have an indoor pool, we used it everyday. A big thank you to Chelsi for sharing this truly magical place with us, it made for such a memorable vacation for us all!

Wonderful Family Weekend

  • 5 of 5

Our family’s stay was wonderful from start to finish. We had a group of 16 from children to seniors. The pictures are awesome of this beautiful home however nothing compares to exploring the house and the grounds in person. It is thoughtfully decorated to enhance the original charm of the home with a modern high end spin. At check-in the home was spotless, we had all our need to know info from Chelsi regarding care of home, pool, WiFi, etc.

The kitchen was fully stocked with all the essentials you would need to feel at home. Great coffee maker, preparing and cooking meals, no problem! The bedrooms were great - linen and towels for each room was provided and the beds? Amazing! (My room the mattress was like a cloud!) The pool, hot tub and sauna are truly your own private retreat. Five stars for having fully stocked pool towels and noodles. Big hit with our group! The movie theater was fun! The outdoor patio and grounds are spectacular! The patio furniture was awesome and we had plenty of seating for everyone! Five Star Stay!

The house is conveniently located. It is a quick 5 min ride to the closest ocean beach. Several grocery stores only a few mins away as well. We couldn’t of asked for more.

Thank you Chelsi for sharing your beautiful home. Can’t wait to plan another trip!
