For those looking to live in a Historic Neighborhood where you can walk out the door to experience the culture, restaurants, and history of Portsmouth, then the South End is the place to call home. This is a wonderfully maintained Circa 1800 home which has a 1 year old roof and an exterior that has been kept up to date with paint every few years. Enter the home and you will immediately be taken by the character inside including the exposed beam, working wood fireplace, and built ins. In the center of the home is the kitchen and office area, for those looking for a bigger kitchen this would be a great opportunity to join the two rooms for an expanded kitchen space. An addition to the home 11 years ago is another very comfortable living area with vaulted ceilings, exposed beams, and a wall of windows looking into the backyard. Interior access to the basement and a half bath round out the first floor. On the second level there are 2 bedrooms, a full bath, and an office that could also be used as a 3rd bedroom. Coveted off street parking, there is a driveway with room for at least 2 cars. Moving towards the rear of the house is the perfectly sized, fully fenced backyard that has views looking into the gardens and antique houses of Strawberry Banke. Enjoy the mature plantings of English rose, peonies, French double white lilacs, knockout rose, hinoki false cypress, and red stick boxwood.
