Buena Vista

The name says it all with 'pleasing views' of the Piscataqua River, Whaleback lighthouse and the Wood Island Life Saving Station. Standing near the ocean's edge, this renewed glory is a showpiece of Victorian architecture in the highly desired village of Contemporary Castle. Dating back to 1667, the original framework was a template for the design and entire renovation (2019) using architectural ornamentation, gabled and mansard roofs, stained glass, plus the addition of a tower and glass structure allowing natural sunlight to beam in. While the exterior speaks to the era, you will find the interior provides all of the modern conveniences of a new home while preserving its historic charm.

Entertaining is a pleasure with an oversized Chef's kitchen anchored by a casual fire placed tremendous room. The walls of glass found here wll captivate any audience with the ever-changing water views of sailboats bobbing on their moorings and huge tankers being escorted up-river by the iconic red tugboats. French doors open to the waterside oasis, a gracious retreat with a stone terrace nestled behind the meticulous hardscaped walls and manicured gardens. An easy stroll brings you to the sandy shores, commons and idyllic town center. With its low property taxes, historic charm and proximity to bustling downtown Portsmouth, it is easy to understand why this is an opportunity of a lifetime. Experience the magic of Buena Vista on the exclusive island of New Castle.
