This New Construction Cape is a gem located in downtown Portsmouth, NH. There was an existing structure on the property that was beyond repair but the city mandated that we reuse the existing foundation and we were able to add additional square footage for a growing family. The custom home boasts 4 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, office, living, dining, kitchen, butler’s pantry, four-car garage, and plenty of space left unfurnished to expand.
The architectural design was inspired by the existing tutor home with the gable facing the front and arched details. The front door is the existing front door adding a splash of the past.
The landscaping was a key component to the plans to provide a beautiful foundation plantings and control water run-off with rain gardens, a raised patio in the back and raised landscaping in the front with permeable pavers for the driveway. The plant list features hydrangea, miscanthis grasses and birch trees with perennials that will bloom from spring well into fall.
