Property Description for 37 South, Portsmouth, NH 03801

This house offers a rare opportunity to live directly on South Mill Pond; a home with a commanding view that extends across the pond to the steeple of North Church in Market Square. It has been five years since one of these pond-front homes has come on the market. The 1790's house in the historic South End is a classic, sun-filled and crisply maintained New England colonial with a center staircase and views of the pond from almost every room. The story passed down from owner to owner is that a portion of the structure was brought over from the Isles of Shoals in the post-revolutionary era. There are period details including two working fireplaces, raised panel woodwork, hard wood floors and a built-in hutch in the dining room. A three-season sun porch, which opens onto the deck, has just been refreshed and both offer magnificent water views. The large eat-in kitchen has full length counter space. The property is listed as a two-bedroom, and the upstairs study could easily be converted into a third. The house, complete with off-street parking was re-clapboarded and painted with new front windows less than 3 years ago. Take a walk on lovely brick sidewalks to Town, the library, Strawbery Banke (where dogs run off leash until 9 a.m.), and Prescott Park. Enjoy the tranquility of the water and beautiful vista from the deck. This house is full of character, simple style and South End charm. It is truly a gem.
