About 47 Park Avenue

Just beyond the charming village green, Thomas Ayres Homestead (c.1737) shines brightly, exuding the loving care of all who have called it home over the years. The current owners have masterfully restored the property and enhanced its energy efficiency, with improvements to insulation, a new tankless hot water heater and an automatic, natural gas-fired generator (powers whole property), to name just a few. This unique compound consists of 4 buildings on a pastoral 2.35-acre lot: >3,300 s.f., 4 BR, Federal-Georgian-Colonial style home; >980 s.f., 2 BR, furnished carriage house (great for rental income, family or guests!); >1,100 s.f., lofted ice house (perfect for office, studio or workshop!); and a commanding 3-story Yankee barn with 2 garage doors (store your vehicles, equipment or horses!). Some of the main home's authentic details include 7 wood-burning fireplaces (one with a double beehive oven and 3 cooking cranes!), wide plank wood floors, exposed beams, raised paneling, Indian shutters, gunstock corners and many built-ins. History Buffs: legend has it that Paul Revere stopped here to change horses on his ride to Portsmouth to warn Colonists of British plans for Fort William and Mary! Own a special part of New England history, while enjoying today's modern conveniences. 47 Park Avenue is ideally located near schools, shopping centers, major routes for commuting, ocean/beaches and all of the wonderful things to see and do in downtown Portsmouth.
