The Henry Sherburne House is a historic property located at 62 Deer Street in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire and a part of a cluster of houses in the area known as "The Hill." This four-level, wood frame, high-style Georgian home was built circa 1725, and is an unusually large house for this part of Portsmouth in the late Georgian period. The distinctive front doorway is reportedly the only known original scrolled pediment doorway to survive from the period in the entire state. Much of the original architecture and decorative features have been restored to its early 1800's interpretation and brought together with modern, updated amenities. Currently utilized as a corporate office, this property could easily transition into a six-bedroom, three-plus bathroom, single-family residence with gated parking, or another compatible use in the City's Central Business District.

Around the corner from Portsmouth's hip North End and an easy sidewalk stroll from downtown, this like-new (c.1845; completely renovated 2002-2017) Colonial blends seamlessly on one of the city's most historic streets. It's a neighborhood bustling with good energy, a popular route for walkers and runners! Deeded access to North Mill Pond means you can walk from your backyard to the shore, hop on a paddleboard at high tide and explore the eclectic urban waterfront. Evenings are best enjoyed on the bluestone patio, gathered around a firepit, marshmallow roasting and storytelling...or stargazing in the hot tub! Inside, you'll find warm, welcoming living space that is often filled with family and friends. The kitchen is BRAND NEW, from cabinets to countertops and appliances...a dream! The granite peninsula was designed for entertaining and there's room for everyone to enjoy holiday meals in an oversized dining room. The spacious living room has a custom entertainment center, gas fireplace and numerous windows that frame water views and capture natural light all day. Upstairs, a lovely master suite with matching built-in wardrobes offers the best sunrise views over the pond! Two add'l bedrooms and an office complete the 2nd level. With a newer foundation, you have a fabulous basement (storage space + a ~600 SF recreation room), a rare find here. Commuters will love this 'get up and go' location, with easy access to highways...and walking distance to New Franklin Elementary School.

Testimonials

I was selling our large home and in need of a smaller, but as comfortable new living situation, still as close to downtown as possible. Ruffner Real Estate, in beautiful downtown Exeter, with Florence Ruffner’s initial guidance as to an eye-pleasing home inspection and Mollie Ruffner, who took charge and came to my rescue. Mollie not only sold my house within six months, she guided me to a great number of new home options. We found a delightful, wooded condominium within bicycle riding distance to the downtown. Two years later I’m thoroughly enjoying “condo” living, happy and content. Thank you Mollie.
