Property Description

18th Century Carriage House Worthy of Renovation. Here is a unique & rarely available well maintained 2880 sq ft Two Story home. This is the Carriage House to the Mansion built by Professor Parsons of Rye (University of Pennsylvania) in the 1800's. There is a possibility of adding the ground floor as living space where you will find a completely dry concrete daylight area with oversized windows & an amazing stone foundation. All original barn doors throughout. Situated on a secluded, but easily accessible private road is this 3/4 + acre gently sloping picturesque lot with a 30 ft elevation surrounded by conservation land on three sides. The entire interior of this Carriage House is the original ubiquitous, 2.5 wide Bead Board of the Victorian era which is still popular & versatile today. It has captured center stage in summerhouses or shore cottages. The original 12' to 16' beadboard covers floor to ceiling & includes the ceiling as witnessed here and is just one of the features, along with level floors, slate roof and Cupola. Enjoy morning coffee on the 37x14 screen porch with ocean breezes and an up close view of nature and wildlife. Home contains a functional, heated living area where you could stay during the renovation. Just a short walk to Rye's Wallis Sands Beach and 2.5 miles from the City of Portsmouth. Seacoast NH where property taxes are low and and there is NO income tax. Come enjoy privacy and quiet here on Port Way and bring your home ideas to life.
