We invite you to enjoy a beautiful life in one the city's absolutely prime locations. Nestled in the heart of the historic South End, Portsmouth's restaurants, the post office, the library—all of it is easily accessible on foot. You can practically walk out your door to Strawbery Banke and Prescott Park, but first you will have to find a way to leave one of the city's most beautiful gardens! Featured on the Annual Pocket Garden Tour three times, you own a spectacular symphony of color punctuated by multi-level blue stone terraces, retaining walls, granite stonework, a water feature and much more. Here you can dine with guests outside in delightful seclusion, or you could choose another patio level where you can view the outside world. The original two-bedroom 1950's cape has been expanded to include two bedrooms upstairs and a Great Room addition built in 2000 which has two automatic skylights, cathedral ceilings, fireplace and custom built-ins—a sanctuary unto itself. Enjoy candlelit meals in the dining room with a crackling fire and Piscataqua River glimpses. There are surprising peek-a-boo river views from nearly every window. The cherry kitchen, breakfast room and office/den all are well-proportioned and complement a lifestyle with a minimum of home care stress. All this AND parking for 3-cars! Almost unheard of here! This is the perfect house in the perfect location to make your “living downtown” dreams come true.
