Why Bill chose Portsmouth
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. 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.
What makes this house unique
The location is a tremendous benefit. Beyond that, and as important, this home has a unique character. It is over 100 years old and was built with superior craftsmanship. This is our primary residence and our pride and joy. Beyond the very nice furniture and fixtures, it has the wall coverings, art work and other sorts of special things that make up a cherished home.
