About the property

Charming 2 Bedroom Open Concept With Water Views From Most Rooms!

This lovely home is located along the back channel of the Piscataqua River on a dead end street just blocks from Prescott Park, Strawberry Banke, and downtown Portsmouth is ideal for one or two couples. Charming antique 2 bedroom home is filled with light and amazing water views! Completely updated yet retaining original features including Gunstock Corners and wide pine floors, the open concept floor plan features a fully-equipped central kitchen with granite counters, breakfast bar, stainless steel appliances and ample storage. Dining room offers a cozy seating area around the gas-fired wood stove surrounded by windows with views of the gardens and water. Comfortable living/family room is equipped with a flat screen TV. The first floor is rounded out by a mixed use room (pictured as an office) but will have a sofa bed for additional guests with a half bath and glass sliders leading to the deck.

The second floor offers 2 bedrooms, one with a queen bed, the other with a trundle bed offering 2 twin-sized beds. A large bathroom features a double walk in shower. Laundry is also available on site.

Glass sliders from the kitchen lead to a mahogany deck which houses a gas grill and overlooks the yard below.

The professionally landscaped yard features a pergola with lights just calling for you to dine al fresco under the stars! The lush garden includes a fire pit patio area, a water feature, gorgeous flowers and statuaries. There is an upper deck leading to the dock with various places to sit and enjoy the views! Watch the fireworks on July 4th & New Years Eve, the boats at the Pierce Island Boat launch, the horse drawn carriages across the way, and the glorious sun rises and sunsets! The water is tidal; kayak and paddle board rentals are available around the corner. There is off-street parking available for 2 vehicles. The house is just a few steps to a wonderful local fish market that will even cook your lobsters for you, a fabulous wine and cheese shop,an Italian market, and a local seafood restaurant.

The house is a short walk to downtown Portsmouth, which is a popular tourist area featuring fine boutiques, numerous theaters, art galleries & studios. Known as a top 'foodie' destination, Portsmouth has so many wonderful restaurants that it’s claim to fame is having more restaurant chairs than residents! It also features Prescott Park, which sits along the Piscataqua River & features open air concerts, plays, movies, festivals, and extensive gardens. Strawberry Banke Museum across the way is a step back in time with colonial-era homes open for view in the summer and access to an outdoor skating rink in the winter! Year round activities include 2 noted film festivals, a Christmas candle light stroll, holiday parades, a First Night Celebration, artist studio open houses, & craft shows! The city features walking tours, horse drawn carriages, and Segway tours. Just around the corner is Pierce Island offering a public outdoor pool, boat launch, dog park, picnic area, playground and walking trails. Portsmouth is centrally located one hour to skiing, less than one hour to 3 airports, and about one hour to Boston and Portland, ME!

This is a wonderful home in any season! Quiet respectful renters please.
