Just ten minutes from the center of Portsmouth, this 1760 reproduction Saltbox home is privately situated on a serene 5-acre lot abutting another 450 acres of conservation land with cross country and horse trails. Beautiful perennial gardens and brick walkways surround this amazing home. The front center entry features a captain’s staircase with hand planed woodwork. Off each side of the entry, there is an oversized living room and dining room each with a Rumford fireplace. The back entrance opens to a keeping room, featuring a third Rumford fireplace with cooking crane and simulated beehive oven. The country kitchen, with handmade pegged cabinets, Corian counters, and window seat, is conveniently located off the keeping room. An additional room opens out to a privately situated pocket garden. The second floor includes a large master bedroom with a walk-in closet leading to a tile bath with double sinks, soaking tub, laundry, and skylights. There are two additional bedrooms, a large storage closet, and access to the attic. Quality is evident throughout this beautiful home with double crown moldings, raised panel and feather edge paneling, handmade lanterns, chair rails, Christian doors, plaster walls, thermopane windows, and wide pine floors. A separate, oversized, garage has I-beam construction and stairs leading to a room above. This home is situated on historic Old Garrison Road which was used by the Concord Coach and therefore kept as it was then, unpaved.
