Almost nothing beats the romance of a stormy evening on the Seacoast, except maybe a stay in a sweet little cottage. Maybe it’s time to own one?
Some of the New Hampshire Seacoast properties listed below are cottages; others are estates that include cottages. Whether you are looking for a grand manor or a cozy getaway, I can help you find the Seacoast cottage of your dreams.
Years of thoughtful planning and the talents of local craftsmen transformed an early 1900's gardener's cottage into this casually elegant signature property. Privately sited away from the street, this New Castle gem features seasonal water views from nearly every window; lush, tiered landscaping; blue stone terraces; and lichen-covered stone walls. The beauty is in the details of this "right-sized" home, where spaces flow from one room to the next with columns, half-walls, and graceful trim, all high-end finishes. Double French doors open from both the dining room and the chef's cherry kitchen to a 30' long screened porch. While the list is long, special features include a serene master suite, mini-guest suite with kitchenette, gas exterior fire pit with granite seats, a pergola, a fountain, and a studio/office with a view. Location offers stunning sunsets year-round, especially dramatic in the winter. This is a rare combination of location and taste in this Island community.
