My Notes
Edit
Portsmouth, New Hampshire Charmer An l870's Victorian in the New Englander style, located in the Historic District and the Little Harbour School District. The date of the house was determined by a photo from the Garland Patch collection of Strawbery Banke, a copy of which is in the owners possession. At the rear is a small carriage house with the wide double-door. It would make a great summer house or workshop. The granite carriage stepping stone from the front of the house, seen in the Patch photo, has been relocated in the garden. The three story structure is clapboarded and features dental molding. The bathroom and kitchen have been updated with period sensibilities. There is a reproduction wood cookstove large enough to prepare a Thanksgiving turkey. It also can heat more than half the house. A compact laundry center has been located within the kitchen. In the bath, a newly refurbished deep tub with a European shower is in a setting of oak bead board and hand blocked wallpaper. The main rooms are square with nine foot ceilings, large windows and their original molding. On the first floor ( in addition to the kitchen, dining and living rooms) are a formal entrance hall and a library with floor to ceiling bookshelves. The hall continues up to the second floor where there are three bedrooms and a bath. Every room is self-contained with solid Christian doors. There is a mix of maple floors, wool broadloom (over maple) and inlaid. A second staircase runs from the kitchen up to the back hall. The solid oak front door and side lites hold original beveled glass. The original art nouveau door knob and lock set are solid brass. The generously sized newel post, banister and balusters are mahogany. In the front room there is a marble surround with brick hearth. It holds a glass fronted gas stove in marble and enamel with an individual thermostat. There is a full attic with two rooms that would allow for bed and bath expansion as well as storage. The full basement opens into the kitchen and the yard. The eastern exposure is lined with mature Norway Maples that provide cooling shade in the summer and in the winter allow strong light and sun to filter through. The side yard is laid with crushed granite, flagstones, and fieldstones with low key meandering beds of Victorian plantings. The house was re-roofed in l998 and the carriage house in 2005. Both were painted in 2005. A dual zone gas furnace was installed in 2005. Plumbing and electrical have all been updated. The wood and gas stoves provide cozy warmth during winter storms. The house includes a gas powered wood splitter and approximately three cords of wood. This Victorian house in a largely Victorian neighborhood is a comfortable family home. It is only blocks from Market Square, Prescott Park, Strawbery Banke and a number of parks and playgrounds. There are city sidewalks throughout.
