Portsmouth Historic Homes

 

One of the reasons Seacoast NH real estate is prized among oceanfront properties is the rich history of its buildings and architecture. The city was incorporated in 1653 and Portsmouth’s Historic District Commission made sure that much of the city's architectural legacy survives today.
 
In Portsmouth you’ll find historic homes dating back to the 1730s. Or if you’re looking for something a bit more modern, you’ll find historic homes from the turn of the century. But you don’t need to wait for the town crier to learn what historic properties are available, just sign up with us and we’ll email you the latest.

A color-splashed renovation in historic Portsmouth. Enter through the back door - a glossy portal color-blocked in electric shades of pink, green, yellow, and blue-and you'll get a hint at the interior design. Like the White House's famously color-coded rooms, this kaleidoscopic home comprises 12 rooms, and almost every one is dedicated to a different bold hue. On the second floor in the home's Red Room a fireplace made of local fieldstone interrupts the monochromatic scheme on one wall, while frame molding and built-in bookshelves add depth to the others. The Kitchen embraces a fiery yellow. In the butler's pantry, the sunny paint covers the cabinets and walls, while 17th-century Dutch tiles adorn the backsplash and French Petite Granite tiles furnish the floors, which are fixed with radiant heating. The kitchen walls feature countless shades of lilac, pale blue, and yellow blended together-almost making the lavish 18th century French chandelier look as if it's casting a rainbow of light around the room. From the French blue sitting room to the rear foyer in purple paneling, each living space takes on a tone of its own. The off-white master bedroom is the most neutral room in the home, making its balcony the star, looking down into the gated courtyard below. In the 1880's the property served as a warehouse and then later as an office space-incredible considering the transformation in to the beautiful residential brownstone that exists today. *Boston Magazine's Sofia Rivera
