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.
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.
