Portsmouth House Rental Photos and Description
Portsmouth Riverfront Rental With A Dock & Pier. Bring Your Boat. Walk To Town.
c1750 Antique Colonial waterfront home in Portsmouth's south end. The neighborhood is known for its exquisitely renovated historic homes and this one is no exception. The homes here are mostly on small lots and close together but don't let this fool you. This home is perfectly situated on the lot for tremendous privacy and beautiful river views. You will most likely spend most of your time out of doors or in the beautifully renovated large river room / family entertainment room with cathedral ceilings and glass doors that open to a covered back porch. The yard is a professionally landscaped pocket-garden leading to the dock, and is completely private with tables and chairs, a grilling area, and plenty of outdoor storage space.
Top of the line appliances are located in the exquisitely designed custom kitchen with soapstone and butcher-block counters. It is truly a chef’s dream kitchen with a Viking commercial-style gas range (with separate water faucet for those large Lobster Pots!), a Sub-Zero refrigerator, dishwasher, wine cooler, and even a fireplace with a Beehive oven. A custom built-in table with benches will accommodate everyone.
There is a half-bath located off the kitchen, and the first floor bedroom is at the front of the house with a queen bed.
Up the circa 1750 winding staircase you will find the master bedroom to the right with another queen bed.
Opposite the master, is the third bedroom (or sitting room) with gorgeous water views from every window. This bedroom has a new futon couch that can fold out to be used as a bed for one (adult) or two (children). There is a washer/dryer in the closet for easy use.
The full bath upstairs has been beautifully renovated.
The house was professionally designed and has all new furniture throughout and beautiful hardwood floors. There is an additional full-size washer and dryer in the basement as well.
The bottom line: park your car and walk or bike everywhere. Or boat! You have your own dock. Please note that the Piscataqua River and its environs are for serious, experienced boaters. Not that kind of boater? Kayak or paddleboard right off your dock. Or just sit on the dock and watch the boats go by. The house is located on a back channel so there is NOT a lot of boating activity right outside your door. It is a quiet place, tucked away from the busy boating areas but accessible to the open ocean by an experienced sailor.

About Janet Taylor
This is a property a friend and I fell in love with immediately and decided to prepare it as a haven for travelers to experience the waterfront history and amenities of Portsmouth in a much more intimate way. Staying in a place like this, you get to have some incredibly unique experiences meeting a lot of the wonderful locals of our area and buy direct from them and support their small businesses. We both adore Portsmouth and want to share some of our favorite things to do, places to eat, etc.

What makes this house unique
The waterfront. The dock. A kayaker's dream. It is such an exquisite location. Very similar to a beach house, it is such a peaceful environment, yet there is every type of entertainment or activity right outside your door. This is our only rental property so you will be spoiled!
