    Description

    Known as the James T. Fields House, this was the childhood home of James T. Fields who would later go on to guide the Atlantic Monthly to become the foremost literary magazine in the United States. This historic antique colonial (circa 1750) consists of two adjacent condo units each with a separate entrance. The three-level home has been painstakingly restored with its dramatic hand-hewn beams, wide-plank pine floors and reclaimed wood. The home includes two bedrooms, 2 baths and a front room that can be used as an office or dining room. The cozy living room has a wall of paned-glass windows that look out on a spacious secret garden with a vine-covered trellis. Just imagine a winter evening with a nice warm fire crackling in the fireplace and the snow falling outside. Head upstairs to the master bedroom with a full bath and sitting area on the landing. A sun-filled bedroom on the top floor with private bath looks out on the garden and nearby Strawbery Banke Museum. Ideal for guests or as a quiet retreat. Located on one of the most desirable streets in the South End, its an easy walk to downtown, the Farmers Market, Prescott Park and all the wonderful arts and eateries that Portsmouth is known for. With a life spanning four centuries, this home has seen it all from the birth of the nation to the creation of a vibrant contemporary community.
