Peek inside this weathered antique home (c.1780) on a quiet street in Portsmouth's South End, where the owners stripped layers of paper and paint and exposed wooden laths behind plaster to create a rustic backdrop for their vintage furnishings. Bring your unique vision and transform this little gem into the pied-a-terre of your dreams! The property includes two parcels: a .017-acre lot upon which the house sits; and an additional .019-acre lot where you may park up to two cars tandem and launch a kayak from your own pocket garden along the tidal waterfront. Ideally sited in Portsmouth's most charming neighborhood...a sidewalk stroll to all of the city's most treasured amenities (Market Square, Strawbery Banke, Prescott Park, boutiques, cafes, theaters, and so on) and the island town of New Castle. Priced below recent appraised value!
