Here is a unique opportunity to have your own brownstone just steps from downtown Portsmouth, and from the happening West End. Soaring 9 ft ceilings and 5 ft windows on the 1st floor make for a very spacious feel, highlighting the nearly 3000 sq ft of living space. Thick brick walls provide a natural barrier from the everyday sounds of the city, but on the 3rd floor one can still hear the bells of the Old North Church. Built on a slight rise, the house has some lovely views of the Harbor and River, downtown skyline, the North Church, and the Memorial Bridge. Outside there is a concrete reinforced brick driveway and multiple brick patios in the private, fenced backyard, along with an asphalt driveway that fits 4+ cars. This house is the best of the old and the new with Victorian architecture and details, and modern heating and electrical systems. This home is literally built on the bedrock of Portsmouth, and the cave-like basement provides for a wonderful natural wine cellar, which is sectioned off as a sanctuary in the front 3rd of the basement. A huge laundry list of upgrades were recently done to the property: topping the list is a new 3 zone heating and cooling system, upgraded Honeywell security system, 15 new premium aluminum clad wood windows just to name a few changes. There is a world of potential in this three-story Victorian brick home and it is just waiting for you to make it your own. It is truly a one of a kind and a pleasure to show!
