Oh, the allure of the harbor and its unique sights and sounds…where ocean views are only obstructed by the masts of sailboats dancing on the water. A rare, one-of-a-kind opportunity to own one of three direct waterfront homes on Rye Harbor. Enjoy this hidden gem in its current use as a seasonal, renovated cottage, or build a new home with the approved plans. Riparian rights with 249+ feet of direct harbor frontage offer the potential to construct a 150-foot private dock in your backyard. Imagine launching your boat from home to explore the New England coastline and islands! The setting is reminiscent of a bygone era with a working waterfront where the daily catch is brought in and sold at lobster pounds. Rye is known for its beaches, golf courses and proximity to downtown Portsmouth, not to mention its low tax structure. Easy access to Boston Logan and Manchester Airports with private jet access only 15 minutes away. Broker interest.
