Sue and I worked hard to find this property. We wanted something in Portsmouth that had real character, and that was close to, but not right in the middle of, downtown. This place does it all for us. We reside in the main part of the house and nearly daily we walk through town in the early morning and stop for a coffee at one of the sidewalk cafes (or sometimes walk across the new bridge to Kittery, ME). We frequently go for a stroll through town in the evening and have a dinner out or catch a show at the historic Music Hall (a must see!) which is only 3 blocks from us. And by car, the Maine and NH coasts are very easy to access via our location.
The location is a tremendous benefit. Beyond that, and as important, this apartment has a unique character. The apartment was created out of what we believe was originally the butlers quarters. Beyond the other amenities the apartment is very well appointed and it's unique design provides a different and pleasant feel.
Our apartment is situated in an ideal location for accessing all that Portsmouth has to offer. We are within an easy walk of a myriad of shops, cafes, pubs, restaurants, the harbor and decks, the historic Music Hall with live performances as well as movies, Prescott Park with outdoor summer theater and shows, Strawberry Banke historic community (and many other historic sites) a outdoor pool, and much more. A 5 minute drive gets you to New Castle Commons which has a small beach at the mouth of the harbor as well as a great picnic area and playground. Fifteen minutes by car gets you to the larger NH beaches and 30 minutes gets you to some great Maine beaches.
