Hampton home is perfect for beach side living

An open house is scheduled for Sunday, June 8, 10 a.m. to 2 p.m

Do you spend summers traveling to the ocean? If you lived at 5 Mill Pond Lane in Hampton, New Hampshire, you would never want to leave home. Just a short sidewalk stroll to sandy North Beach, this expansive contemporary home began life as a cute seaside cottage in the 1930s, but a full remodel in the 1980s by a well-known surfing enthusiast transformed it into year-round beach house. Great for either a primary residence or a perfect second home, this gem has room for everyone. And with an indoor pool, sunken hot tub, and bluestone patio with outdoor shower, it is the perfect place for indoor and outdoor entertaining all year round.

The seacoast town of Hampton is truly the best of all possible worlds. Home to Hampton Beach State Park and many local attractions including deep sea fishing, museums, restaurants, and retail shopping, it also offers easy highway access to Boston, a commuter’s dream!

But why leave home, when this property has so much to offer?

The spacious master bedroom has wood floors and a private balcony overlooking scenic Mill Pond, a perfect location for sipping wine on warm summer nights. The full bath sports his and her sinks. The fully-carpeted second floor family room is ideal for playtime, movie viewing, game nights, and more.

The heated indoor pool promises year round exercise, and with track lighting, will inspire many evening pool parties. It is is located right off the fireplaced living room, and when not in use, can be covered for a bonus room.

The updated eat-in kitchen has newer appliances and opens to the large ground floor deck, as does the pool and sunny living room.

Storage is never a problem with huge closets, built-in wooden shelves and surf board racks.

Outdoors you’ll find an well-maintained, low maintenance lot, nicely landscaped with perennial beds and sweet pocket gardens surrounding the home, a bluestone patio, large deck with sunken hot tub, outside shower and a small fenced in area, great for corralling kids or dogs or both! An antique grist mill is located at the street corner, a living reminder of the region’s rich history.
