Other things to note
This home at the end of a quiet street offers excellent privacy with a view of everything the harbor offers. In addition to the waterfront, it is surrounded by acres of park and conservation land, a museum, and historical buildings. Naturally beautiful views are in every direction including those of the Royal Governor’s mansion and the Wentworth Hotel. The historic Astor home at Creek Farm is a five minute walk around the corner.
The home features four bedrooms, three full baths, seasonal outdoor rinse area, sleeping for 7-8, and ample parking. A sea wall with ladder provides for excellent swimming and diving in your back yard and put-ins for kayaks and other watercraft are steps away. Easy access to a tidal sand bar and plenty of nearby island exploring. Enjoy bicycles and kayaks and other recreational toys provided by the owners.
A short walk, bike ride, or drive gets you into downtown Portsmouth where you can choose from a wide array of shopping, dining, and touring options. Kittery’s vibrant downtown is also just minutes away. A 10 minute drive brings you to the larger beaches in New Castle and Rye.
This location is ideal for couples and families who appreciate privacy and room to stretch out, love the outdoors, and want to be in town for all that Portsmouth offers. Besides the master/king, most of the beds are suitable for kids or short-term guests. It is not for large groups or parties. Well-trained dogs are welcome!
High-speed Internet and a Sonos system are available. Sorry, the house is intentionally television and cable free!
This family home is a very old funky farmhouse with lots of character and a casual, lived-in feel. It has squeaky stairs, slanting floors, and sagging doors. It is uncluttered, clean, and comfortable, and will make you feel relaxed and at home immediately. When you wake up here on a sunny morning there is nowhere else in the world you'll want to be!

I am an artist, married and mother of two daughters. I have 2 dogs whom I adore and a flower garden that is just a bit too big to manage realistically. I am crazy about sunsets and cooking great food.
