“You can’t help but admire its curb appeal with signature cobalt blue shingles, dramatic gambrel roofline and elegant front porch,” according to one description from Sotheby's International Realty about the property.
The historic district of Portsmouth, New Hampshire, is something else. From the elegant homes to the brick masonry work, everything bonds history to modern era Portsmouth.
One of the homes that exemplifies the combination of historical tribute to classy and modern design is the Stella Maris at 640 Middle Road.
The house is currently listed for just $3 million, and is just under three quarters of a mile to Market Square. Originally designed by Fred Crowell Watson for stockbroker Cyril E. Jackson, it's a three bedroom, two-and-a-half bathroom home.
The redesign in 2015 leaves this 20th century home feeling like a Ritz Carlton.
The fireplace and dining room as a center piece in the first floor is a work of art. The custom master walk-in closet is any shopper's dream. The bottom level exercise room is an opportunity like no other.
And did I mention the rooftop deck and classy screened in porch overlooking the luscious backyard?
If elegance is your style, "luxury touches are sprinkled throughout, from marble, polished nickel and tasteful chandeliers to heart pine flooring and extraordinary millwork," according to the listing site.
This place is sweet, and certainly turn-key and available for purchase now.
Take a look at the incredible work done on this historic masterpiece. We're sure you'll love it as much as we do.
