$2,800,000 / Shingle Style
Lynne Joyce Tate & Foss Sotheby's International Realty
Introducing ‘Stella Maris,’ a c.1902 Shingle Style beauty! Seamlessly renovated (2016) for a luxury lifestyle, it has the character of an older home with the efficiency of a new building (siding, roofing, insulation, electrical, plumbing, HVAC). As you head toward Market Square (3/4 mile), you can’t help but admire its curb appeal and signature cobalt blue shingles. Inside, the floor plan is open, with one stylish, light-filled room flowing to the next. From the chef’s kitchen, you have a clear view through the main living area (with 2 working fireplaces) to a brilliant, screened porch overlooking the private backyard. An exquisite primary bedroom suite features walk-in closet, bath with tiled steam shower and soaking tub, working fireplace, mahogany deck. Thoughtfully reimagined to include 2nd floor laundry; 1st floor butler’s pantry and home office; lower-level exercise and mud rooms; and 2-car garage. Luxury touches sprinkled throughout, from marble and polished nickel to heart pine flooring and extraordinary millwork. Sited on 1/3 acre with irrigated lawns and blooming perennials. ‘The Star of the Sea’ offers a rare combination of amenities to live your best life in Portsmouth!
