Historic 1784 home of Captain Thomas Thompson, one of the first naval officers commissioned by the Continental Congress. Capt. Thompson commanded the Frigate USS Raleigh, which was built on Badger's Island in 1776. The USS Raleigh is depicted on the NH State Seal. The 5,692 SF home has always been in private ownership and retains the aesthetic, architectural heritage of the period. Contiguous buildings include a shed, barn and a renovated 5+ room carriage house with 1,547 SF. Corporate meetings, nonprofit philanthropic initiatives and political gatherings have taken place in the parlor. National and local politicians, well-known film and theatre personalities and international dignitaries have been guests of honor at these events. Historic neighboring properties include; The Governor John Langdon House and Strawbery Banke. This home has history, legacy, presence and yet, there are still stories to be written. Are you the next author? Are you the next steward of this magnificent Portsmouth property?

From Our Clients

"Brian and I wanted to let you know how much we appreciated your assistance and hard work over the last few months. As first-time homebuyers, we kept you quite busy with our questions and worries. You were always very helpful and pleasant, and truly on our side as we navigated the process. You went above and beyond several times, and for that we are grateful.

Your professionalism, expert knowledge, recommendations, and advocacy on our behalf are just a few of the reasons why we would confidently refer any potential home buyer or seller to you in a heartbeat.

After our unpredictable run of ups and downs that were outside our control, we have finally found the right home in Durham NH, thanks to you. We are very happy here in Durham, and look forward to seeing you around town."

Erika Tobiassen and Brian Place, Durham, NH
