Situated on almost a half-acre, a rarity in this area of Kittery, 160 Whipple Road offers ample parking for visiting guests, beautifully landscaped outdoor space, 248'+/- of water frontage on a quiet inlet of the Piscataqua River, a private 60' dock and a riparian rights mooring. The current owners saw this antique cape, originally built in 1895, as an opportunity to honor the history of the home while transforming it into a modern day sanctuary. Beginning in 2017, the home was taken down to the studs and completely remodeled. Each decision from the unseen framing to the stunning finishes has been painstakingly chosen to ensure this home will be here and enjoyed for another 130 years. The gorgeous new wall of windows in the main living area of the home takes full advantage of the exceptional water views. Functional new spaces were thoughtfully designed during the remodel including the first floor's laundry room, half bath, open concept living room, dining area and high-end kitchen with butler's pantry, and a water side primary suite with walk-in closet with custom built-ins, and a stunning bath with tiled shower. All new modern home systems: ducted heat pump with central air, two upstairs mini splits, recessed lighting, 220 amp electrical service, security system and closed cell foam insulation were added while preserving much of the charm of the original home with reclaimed wood accents, the original curved staircase and a few well-appointed leaded glass windows. This truly special property is completed by a detached two car garage with storage above, a full basement with convenient outdoor access and a perfectly positioned rear deck ideal for entertaining and for taking in the natural beauty of the waterfront. Fabulous location close to Pepperell Cove, Kittery Foreside and downtown Portsmouth. Newly added sidewalks make it easy to take walks along the charming water side road.
