Private and quiet country location - The Joshua Lassell Barn - walk to harbor, beaches, nature preserve, village. Located on the grounds of the ancient 1716 Joshua Lassell House in the Old Seabury area. No other houses are in sight - you may hear the horses whinny to themselves. York River is right out back. Portsmouth, NH - historic hip music, foodie and theatre mecca - is a 10 minute drive. Ogunquit art colony just up the Shore Road. Boston and Portland are both 50 minutes away by major highway. Kennebunkport 25 minutes. Bike and canoe for your use. Due to high deck and horses on property, no children between ages 3 - 10. Laundry, deck, charcoal grille, outside dining. Our neighbor is a lobsterman - ask us about lobsters fresh off the boat . Well-behaved pets welcome for $100 extra. We have 2 Schnauzers - Josh and June.
Spring and Fall - good Striper fishing. Fall is lovely for autumn colors, York Harvestfest, and peaceful days.

Sonia: I grew up in California, where I met Brud. He wanted to return to New England, an appealing idea, so here we are.
In winter we go into semi-hibernation mode, but spring, summer and fall are well worth it.
An ancient timber - framed house, 4 fireplaces, enough property to have horses and privacy, the barn. And chipmunks - many chipmunks of different tribes - the barn group, the stonewallers, the house bunch, led by 'Superchip'.
We're going to give the place a 300th birthday party in 2016.
Private and quiet, yet close to the beaches, ocean. Good walking in all directions. This area has a country feel, yet there are some really great restaurants, galleries, museums, theatre, music - Portsmouth, Boston, Portland close at hand. Several conservation areas and large parks.
