About The Owner

We lived on the coast in Maine for many years but we fell in love with Portsmouth so we relocated four years ago. Our family loves being a part of a neighborhood and so close to outdoor activities, and great restaurants.

The Owner purchased this house in 2011

What makes this house unique

We love watching the tugboats and fishing boats go by as we hang out on the deck.

I rented this house to visit my friend who relocated to Portsmouth. She is convinced that this house is the most beautiful house in Portsmouth. It's a toss up whether the master bedroom, that has a balcony, or the living room has the best views.

While we enjoyed eating out in restaurants, we opted to spend several nights grilling on the balcony and eating in the dining area near the fireplace. Every portion of the house is perfectly decorated. It was a pleasure being in a house that doesn't have a television in every room. Instead the large TV is in the living room and the rest of the house is blissfully without one.

My only regret was that I could not remember all of those piano lesson I had a child so that the piano remained untouched.

Ogunquit Maine was a short drive away and the trail along the Atlantic ocean at Marginal Way is not to be missed. While I love to shop in New York City where I live, the shops in Portsmouth and Ogunquit are not to be missed.

In sum -- you can't go wrong staying at this house -- its absolutely perfect.

Our home, constructed in 1918, is in a historic district known as Atlantic Heights, which was originally built to house people working in the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Portsmouth is a fully functioning seacoast town with large tankers and fishing boats traveling through Portsmouth Harbor. Portsmouth was named to the National Geographic travelers list as a distinctive destination.

Some highlights to see are historic houses dating to 1674, The USS Albacore, a national landmark, is a decommissioned submarine open for public viewing. Strawberry Banke is a 10 acre waterfront museum of historic houses of the first settlers in 1630 with manicured gardens with free nightly concerts and plays. Portsmouth Harbor cruises will take you on a narrated trip through the harbor and out to the Isle of Shoals.

....and the best part is downtown Portsmouth is just a bike ride away. Fantastic restaurants and eclectic boutiques and shops!
