Investors and historians take notice! This is your opportunity to purchase a unique pair of historic homes on a single 1 plus acre parcel with views overlooking Portsmouth Naval Shipyard. Tucked off the main road on a quiet side street, just minutes outside the Kittery Foreside, 9-15 Friend street offers a multitude of future use options. Reconstruct or renovate both homes or take advantage of this large private setting and remove both buildings to design your own single family residence. Possibilities abound! Built in 1863, The Old Jacob Joy Place (9 Friend St.), was designed lavishly for its time, complete with Greek revival style elements that remain still today! This spacious 3 bed, 1 bath cape is adorned with intricate dental moldings, a unique winding center staircase, and wide plank floors. It is ready to be restored and brought back to life. The old ladder leading to the attic is known to have come from the captain's quarters of a boat at the shipyard, potentially Jacob Joy's. Built as a cottage in 1936, 15 Friend St. offers single floor living with 2 beds and 1 full bath. Hard wood floors throughout, a galley kitchen and a generous living and dining space with plenty of natural light are highlights of the home. With just a bit of updating, you will be enjoying the view of the harbor from the front porch along with your morning coffee! Significant due diligence on renovation options has been done. Please see listing packet for a list of vendors we have received past bids from. Lot subdivision and creation of condo association to separate the two homes into two units have both been considered by seller. Will not qualify for conventional financing. Parcel SOLD AS IS. All showings delayed until after OPEN HOUSE 10 AM - 12 PM Saturday May 6th and 1PM-3PM Sunday May 7th.
