Located just steps away from vibrant downtown Portsmouth, this historic federal home built in 1804 features 5,100+/- sq ft, 6 bedrooms and 6.5 bathrooms. Known as the Pickering-Heffenger house, these walls have a story to tell, host to a peace treaty ball between the Japanese and Russians during the Treaty of Portsmouth in 1905. The elegance of another era is evident throughout this three-story sun-filled home with exquisite crown moldings and trim, arched doorways, marble fireplace surrounds, and the lovely, curved staircase with its decorative spindles, a center focus of the entry hall. History meets today’s standards seamlessly with a large bright updated kitchen featuring stainless appliances, loads of cabinetry and a large center island. The kitchen opens to a dining area with access to the multi-level terraced garden, a quiet private oasis. The first floor comprises the kitchen/dining room, parlor, living room, and an even larger dining room all designed to entertain. Upstairs each bedroom is ensuite with bath and fireplace. The property also offers a large courtyard that can accommodate 8 cars, and a 3-car garage. A separate renovated carriage house features 3 well-appointed 2-story rental units netting north of 100K yearly rent and provides an additional 2762 sq ft of living space. Walking distance of Market Square, an opportunity to own a bit of history, on a quiet street, in the heart of Portsmouth. Change of use allows for commercial use &#38' commercial construction.
