We proudly offer one of the South End's most unique antique properties. Not just another meticulous restoration, though thoroughly up-to-date and lovely. Even WMUR-TV thought so and featured it on “New Hampshire Chronicle.” After all, the 1778 Elbridge Gerry House is both flawlessly refreshed and comes with a splendid historical pedigree. Gerry, you see, was U.S. Vice President and signed the Declaration of Independence. Yet there are many compelling amenities for today's buyer. Uppermost is a hard to find private dock with deep water access. The entire waterfront world is now yours! The lot is oversized and beautifully landscaped with access from three different streets. The potential for further enhancement, like building a garage or studio, is here. As it is, there are waterviews almost everywhere. Well-appointed formal rooms beckon visitors, one of whom was actor Paul Newman. He must have enjoyed the seven working fireplaces, king pine floors and the third floor with its remarkable Piscataqua River views. Vistas so inspiring that the artist Christopher Ward learned to paint here. But perhaps it's the things you can't see that truly draw you to this special place. It could be waking to the sounds of blue heron, ducks, cormorants and other birds that call the area home. Or thoughts of leisurely walks to downtown Portsmouth, Prescott Park, maybe a day on the water. You are entitled to dream. Now make them come true!

The Henry Sherburne House is a historic property located at 62 Deer Street in downtown Portsmouth, New Hampshire and a part of a cluster of houses in the area known as "The Hill." This four-level, wood frame, high-style Georgian home was built circa 1725, and is an unusually large house for this part of Portsmouth in the late Georgian period. The distinctive front doorway is reportedly the only known original scrolled pediment doorway to survive from the period in the entire state. Much of the original architecture and decorative features have been restored to its early 1800's interpretation and brought together with modern, updated amenities. Currently utilized as a corporate office, this property could easily transition into a six-bedroom, three-plus bathroom, single-family residence with gated parking, or another compatible use in the City's Central Business District.
