A very unique home, this open concept guest house is the original home on an estate in the seacoast town of Hampton Falls, New Hampshire. Centrally located on a scenic road, a five minute drive from Phillips Exeter Academy, seacoast beaches and local farms. Twenty minutes to Newburyport MA and Portsmouth NH. Fifty minutes to Boston or Portland ME.
Upstairs you will find a queen and twin bed with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams and ceiling fan. The twin is separated from the queen by a bead board half wall. The desk area over looks a perennial rock garden, raised cut flower beds and an extensive kitchen garden in the rear of the property. An extra large closet with a window could function as sleeping area for a cot or crib. This is behind a divided light door upstairs.
Downstairs there is a custom kitchen with stainless appliances and a gas range. Full size fridge, microwave and dishwasher included. Rear entrance mudroom has a washer and dryer. Bathroom has a large two-headed tile shower and radiant heat under the tile floor. Living room is comfortable with a new couch, TV with DVD player and a drawer of movies hidden in the under stairs cabinet. Floor space available for additional sleeping cots or blow up mattress.
The house is eclectically decorated as a show house with finds from Ramona Morningbird, a vintage shop you can read more about at www.ramonamorningbird.com. Accessory furniture and decorations are evolving as the shop brings in new finds. The display will always inspire fun browsing.
Exit the home through the rear door to a pea stone patio planted with hydrangeas, hibiscus, and a weeping japanese maple. The sprawling lawn connects to the main home of the property and you are welcome to browse the gardens for fresh cut flowers or produce in the summer months. A large open field leads to a small brook and woods.
A short walk down the road you will find Applecrest Farm Orchards, the oldest and largest apple farm in New HAmpshire. Along with apples, there you can buy fresh baked goods, prepared foods, local grown produce, dairy and of course cider donuts. Open May to Christmas Eve.
Pets will be considered on a case by case basis. All considerations must be child, cat and other dog friendly.
Owners Rick and Hopi Wickson take pride in this home and property. Purchased in 2001 as a tear-down colonial it was lovingly rebuilt and restored from the studs outward and inward. It was here we got married, brought home two infants and built years of memories as we expanded to build the home next door. You will find the love of our family in height charts and cement paw prints throughout the home. Not just a rental - this is our guest home we are sharing with you.
