Stunning South End home, an easy walk to downtown Portsmouth and public schools is on the market for the first time in 20 years. Dating back to 1713, this house retains much of its historical charm, with exposed beams featured in the first floor, and original Norwegian red pine wide floor boards on the second floor. Lockers in the back hall were made from original floorboards reclaimed from the home's attic. The sunny dining and living rooms look out over small, fenced front gardens, and across the street to the South St. Playground. The kitchen includes Brazilian green slate counters and stainless appliances. Floors are wood throughout, except in the back hall and first floor bathroom, where they are heated slate tile. Upstairs are three bedrooms, a full bath, and a front room (now a studio) that could serve as a fourth bedroom. The house has ample storage in the attic and full basement. Updated energy efficient Andersen windows throughout, and Atrium patio door with venting side lites in the rear. Enjoy the City's twice annual fireworks display from the back deck, which offers glimpses of the South Mill Pond. A mere 5 minute walk (sidewalks the entire way) to seasonal farmers market and neighborhood public swimming and water access. Harvest your own pears and raspberries from the comfort of your own private fenced-in backyard. OPEN HOUSE SAT 9/30 12:00-2:00
