The Whittemore House has been in out family since 1948. Originally built as a wonderful summer 'cottage' in the 1890's, this 4000 square foot house sits with eight other houses on historical Straws Point. Over four generations of Whittemore's have enjoyed this summer house, from young children to our grandparents. There is something for all, from the vintage 1860's garage filled with children's toys, the rambling upstairs great to play hide and seek, the games and movies in the den. But most of all, the large wrap around screened in porch, perfect to sip coffee or enjoy evening cocktails with friends and family before a classic lobster dinner.

Gayle Whittemore purchased this estate in 1948

Rye New Hampshire is a throw back in time to those hot summer days at the beach as a young child. It is a gentle way of life, sophisticated, relaxing and down home all at the same time. A perfect place to get away with family and friends.

The ocean is directly in front of the house across the grassy field, and the constant warm ocean breeze and sound of crashing waves is hypnotizing. Every moment I get is spent outside on the wrap around screened in porch, rocking in the old wicker rocking chairs, visiting with friends and family, and gazing at the ocean.

New Hampshire lays claim to only 18 miles of coastline and from this house you can see every one of the 6 public beaches in the state. The Seacoast of New Hampshire is where you will find evening concerts, fireworks, boat cruises, water sports and great lobster meals. Where else can you spend a spectacular summer day on the sands, sandwiched between refreshing Atlantic surf and row after row of accommodations, amusements, boating adventures, restaurants, and shops?

Your neighborhood is quiet and restful, but you can easily find active fun as you walk to the local beach which is less than a mile from the house. Beach access is easy. You can walk to restaurants. The marina with lobsters to cook is a short drive and there are fishing trips and tours of the Isles of Shoal. You will not lack for things to do. Come and have fun!
