Follow the sea breeze to Shoals House, an antique Cape Cod-style home with a fascinating history! Rumored to have been built (c.1750) on Star Island at the Isles of Shoals, the original house was carefully disassembled, barged to the mainland and reassembled on a new foundation. A post-and-beam barn was added and later connected to the house. Today, this expanded and renovated home offers a unique blend of old and new. The front living room exudes warmth with original hardwood floors, walls of shipbuilding boards, 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 companionship 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 corner and wake to views of wildlife passing through the yard…enjoy the convenience of a walk-in closet and tiled bathroom with grotto-style shower. On the other end 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. Less than 1 mile from the ocean, Less than 3 (mi) from Portsmouth!
