Introducing ‘Stella Maris,’ a c.1902 Shingle Style beauty designed by Fred Watson for stockbroker Cyril Jackson. Seamlessly renovated (2016) with the highest quality for a modern lifestyle, it has the timeless character of an older home with the efficiency of a new building (siding, roofing, insulation, electrical, plumbing, heating/cooling, etc.). As you pass by on your way to Market Square (3/4 mile), you can’t help but admire its curb appeal with signature cobalt blue shingles, gambrel roofline and front porch. Inside, the floor plan is open, with one stylish, light-filled room flowing to the next. From the chef’s kitchen, you can watch neighbors stroll along the sidewalk and have a clear view through the main living area (with 2 working fireplaces) to a magnificent, screened porch overlooking the private backyard. Upstairs, an exquisite primary bedroom suite with custom walk-in closet, bath with tiled steam shower and soaking tub, working fireplace and mahogany deck. Thoughtfully reimagined to include 2nd floor laundry; 1st floor powder room, butler’s pantry and home office; lower-level exercise and mud rooms…and a fabulous garage. Luxury touches are sprinkled throughout, from marble and polished nickel to heart pine flooring and extraordinary millwork. Sited on 1/3 acre with lush, irrigated lawns, perennials that bloom through the season, and landscape lighting. ‘The Star of the Sea’ offers a rare combination of amenities to live your best life in beautiful Portsmouth!
