Follow the sea breeze to Shoals House (c.1750), a Cape Cod-style home rumored to have been built on Star Island at the Isles of Shoals...with the original house carefully disassembled, barged to the mainland and reconstructed on a new foundation; a post-and-beam barn later added and connected to the house. Today, this expanded and renovated home offers a unique lifestyle. The front living room exudes warmth with original hardwood floors, shiplap walls, windows with paneled shutters and a dramatic brick fireplace…a cozy spot to curl up with that book you just can’t put down! A modern, open-concept kitchen and dining area is where family and friends gather to enjoy quality time and home-cooked meals. You’ll fall in love with the south-facing family room and its brick floor, vaulted ceiling and wall of glass overlooking a private deck and vast sea of green lawn stretching toward the woods. One of its greatest surprises is a 1st floor master suite! Sleep soundly in this quiet space and wake to views of wildlife passing through the 1.7-acre yard…enjoy the convenience of a walk-in closet and bathroom with grotto-style shower. On the other side of the house are two extra bedrooms…one with a wood-burning fireplace, the other with a ladder leading to a loft. Beyond the mudroom, above the garage, there’s a soaring, rustic recreation room loaded with potential...great space for an art studio, home office or future apartment. Less than 1 mile from the ocean...less than 3 from Portsmouth!
