Nestled in the heart of New Castle Village, this lovely turn key antique colonial is steps from the Town Hall, Post Office, Portsmouth Yacht Club and a short distance to the beach and New Castle Common. Carefully updated, many new upgrades have been made to the house all while retaining its historic character. This inviting home features a completely renovated custom kitchen with stunning mahogany countertops, slate floor and high end finishes. The kitchen opens up to a “keeping room” with wide pumpkin pine floors, a large working fireplace with beehive oven and built in cabinetry. Also on the first floor are a formal living room, dining room with fireplace and powder room. Upstairs you will find two well appointed bedrooms, each with a fireplace and en suite bath. The master also has an adjoining sitting room. The walkup attic provides generous and easily accessible storage space. Outside is a charming private backyard accessed through a vine-covered arbor. The yard is comprised of a pocket garden, trees dating to the colonial period in which the house was built along with perennial plantings, stonewalls and a brick patio. The cobblestone and gravel driveway fits two cars and leads to a one car garage. Enjoy a view of the Piscataqua River from the front of your new home. This well situated and beautifully maintained property offers perfect Seacoast living!
