Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Portsmouth, NH, USA:
My husbands family has owned the property since the 1950's. My husband grew up next door and planted the raspberry patch that we still pick from today in 1970! The house was built in 2003 for our family. We have lived here since.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Living in this house give us the unique feeling of always being on vacation. It is only 1 mile from the center of town with all its history, shops, restaurants and night life yet it is tucked away in a private area allowing us the pleasure of the solitude, tranquility, and visual beauty of the bay.
