As it gently meanders from the center of town to the Ocean at Foss Beach, Washington Rd. is often described as the most charming street in Rye. Lined with antique colonials, farmhouses and classic is the quintessential New England location! And just 1/2 mile from the beach, sits this beautifully sited 1950s cape, surrounded by stone walls and mature landscaping. Lovingly maintained and updated for the last 30 years, it's time for the next owner to enjoy its sun-filled family room, charming screened porch and private brick patio. Family Holidays were enjoyed here, as generations spread out into the fireplaced LR, Formal DR and eat-in Kitchen overlooking the walls of windows in the FR. Some may even have settled into the private, bookshelf-lined Den to catch a few minutes of the Game! Upstairs there are 2 good-sized guest rooms that share a bath and the Primary Suite that has been upgraded with multiple closets and an updated bath with a large shower. From the road, the stone walls and beautiful landscaping frame the picture-perfect front entry, and the very private rear patio leads to an expansive backyard with lush lawns and towering trees! Just a short walk or bike ride to the end of Washington Rd., where locals enjoy the quieter Foss Beach. A rare opportunity to live in Rye and enjoy all the benefits of a smaller community - but still have easy access to dinner, theater and shopping in Portsmouth! It doesn't get much better than this!
