Oceanfront penthouse offers panoramic vistas

Open House today, Sunday, Oct. 13, from 11 a.m. to 3 p.m.

This one of-a-kind Great Boar’s Head penthouse is gracefully perched high on a bluff offering panoramic views of the coastline, out to the Isles of Shoals and infinite Atlantic Ocean.

Located in a shingle-styled, oceanfront building in the lovely Great Boar’s Head neighborhood of Hampton, about a mile north of the main beach resort area, the spacious condominium offers an indulgent lifestyle in a magnificent location. An open-concept, vaulted-ceiling living room, and an array of windows and glass doors out to the oceanfront deck, give the luxurious home a vast wide open feel. It is a front row seat in one of the most prized locations on the income-tax-free New Hampshire Seacoast.

While the views are spectacular, so are the high-end details of the carefree home. The oceanfront kitchen will please even a gourmet chef with Subzero, Thermodore and Fisher Paykel appliances. Practicality and technology are perfectly balanced by beauty with gorgeous granite counters, glass-tiled backsplash, handsome WoodMode cabinetry and a breakfast bar that effortlessly links the kitchen to the dining room, living room and the oceanfront deck. The layout has been carefully planned to maximize workspace, to keep the cook in the conversation and to allow said cook to enjoy the glorious oceans vistas while working in the kitchen.

The dining room, with amazing ocean views on two sides, works equally well for an intimate candlelight diner or for entertaining. Just beyond the dining room the very-private mahogany oceanfront deck features plenty of space for a gas grille, alfresco dining and entertaining.

Bathed in natural light from the double-glass doors, the 22-by-14-foot living room is remarkable, with an elegant wood-burning fireplace that anchors the room and balances the space with style and warmth. Custom built-in bookcases provide visual texture and excellent display space for objet d’art. The soaring, vaulted ceiling captures the open feel of the oceanfront location, linking the indoor and outdoor living spaces.
