Portsmouth House Rental Photos and Description
3 bedroom, 2.5 bath with breathtaking gardens and first-class amenities

Often noted as one of the nicest homes in Portsmouth, this spacious (3000 sq. ft.), 3 bedroom home is situated on a large lot on a quiet, tree-lined, dead-end street, within walking distance to quaint downtown Portsmouth. It has all the amenities -- gourmet kitchen, central A/C, second floor laundry, wall-mounted flat screen TV in family room, large finished basement (with queen Murphy bed), formal dining room, butler's pantry, private Williamsburg-style garden, hot tub, and much, much more. All bedding and linens are of the highest quality, for you luxurious comfort.

You will be met, in person, upon your arrival, and provided with a special 'welcome to our home' package, including champagne, strawberries, cheese, crackers, milk, orange juice, bread, butter, and eggs. In addition, we provide a comprehenive binder with All the information you'll need about Restaurants, beaches, local attractions, and day trips to Boston and the White Mountains. Two adult Trek bicycles are available for your enjoyment, and we are happy to make arrangements, on your behalf, for any other items you may need. We pride ourselves on providing 'concierge service' - using our very best efforts to meet any request. We have lived in Portsmouth for 26 years, and can provide unique insight into activities in the New Hampshire seacoast, Boston, and White Mountain areas.

Touch-up maid service will be provided the fourth day of your stay.

Here's the bottom line: This is not a typical rental property; it is our gracious and refined home, with extensive gardens that provide a one-of-a-kind outdoor experience in a quaint seaside town. We rent our home, selectively, during the summer while we spend time at our lake cottage. Most of our renter come back year-after-year to enjoy our delightful home. We would love to have you start the same tradition.

The master bedroom suite has an oversized king bed with its own full bath and two sinks. The second bedroom has a queen bed, and the third bedroom has two single beds. There is a queen Murphy bed in the finished basement.

We are a professional couple in our mid-50s, who work in downtown Portsmouth, and enjoy travelling in our free time.

David and Sally Mulhern purchased this house in 1995

We have lived and worked in this area for decades, and when this property came on the market nearly 20 years ago, we jumped at it. It is one of the nicest homes in Portsmouth, and we have loved living in it and raising our children here.

One of us loves gardening and the other loves cooking and history, and this house is a perfect fit for both of us. The gourmet kitchen is a chef's dream, the front and back gardens have grown over the years to be truly amazing spaces, and the home is a short walk to historical downtown Portsmouth.

I love this home! It was so charming and perfect for our week long getaway at the end of last summer. The backyard was perfect for laying out and at the end of the day the hot tub was such a treat! We can't wait to return this summer!
