Only miles from Portsmouth, Maine, Massachusetts, and the Seacoast, 156 Portsmouth Avenue lies right in the Town Center of Stratham, New Hampshire. Built in 1783, this two-story, historic Colonial home has been redesigned in an open-concept, contemporary style that does not detract from its classic roots. The main building - sitting on 0.36 acres pending sub-division - has a large, dual access driveway and plenty of lawn on either side to enjoy year-round. Step inside the double French doors to the spacious kitchen, custom designed and built in elegant style with commercial-grade appliances and farmhouse sink. Continue into the finished hardwood floor living room with brick fireplace and attached office nook surrounded by windows for an amazing view to complete your work to. Followed by the family room with another fireplace and attached office nook, adjacent stairs head to three bedrooms, each with their own fireplace openings and hardwood floors as well. A second floor kitchenette leads to another living room with access to a long balcony with exterior stairs connecting to the driveway. A finished attic with a third-floor balcony and knee wall closets rounds out this home and allows extra space for family or guests to stay with direct access to the kitchenette, second-floor laundry, and full bath. Take a look at why being in the center of the Seacoast truly has its benefits!
