We proudly offer one of the South Ends most unique antique properties. Not just another meticulous restoration, though thoroughly up-to-date and lovely. Even WMUR-TV thought so and featured it on New Hampshire Chronicle. After all, the 1778 Elbridge Gerry House is both flawlessly refreshed and comes with a splendid historical pedigree. Gerry, you see, was U.S. Vice President and signed the Declaration of Independence. Yet there are many compelling amenities for todays buyer. Uppermost is a hard to find private dock with deep water access. The entire waterfront world is now yours! The lot is oversized and beautifully landscaped with access from three different streets. The potential for further enhancement, like building a garage or studio, is here. As it is, there are waterviews almost everywhere. Well-appointed formal rooms beckon visitors, one of whom was actor Paul Newman. He must have enjoyed the seven working fireplaces, king pine floors and the third floor with its remarkable Piscataqua River views. Vistas so inspiring that the artist Christopher Ward learned to paint here. But perhaps its the things you cant see that truly draw you to this special place. It could be waking to the sounds of blue heron, ducks, cormorants and other birds that call the area home. Or thoughts of leisurely walks to downtown Portsmouth, Prescott Park, maybe a day on the water. You are entitled to dream. Now make them come true!
