Step into the Tenney House, a National Historic Landmark convenient to downtown Exeter and prestigious Phillips Exeter Academy, and be captivated by its historic charm. Built c. 1800 and situated on a half-acre in a quiet neighborhood, the stately six-bedroom, four-bath home features many unique details including original window shutters and shelving, four working fireplaces, keystone arches, crown molding, hand-hewn hardwood floors, even a multiple-floor laundry chute. Designed by prominent local builders Ebenezer Clifford and Bradbury Johnson, the Federal-style home’s three-story design is unique among early 19th-century New England homes. Entering the front door, noted for its fluted columns and delicate carvings, an intimate sitting room to the right, complete with fireplace, beckons; to the left is a casual sitting room, also with a fireplace. Separated by an elegant hallway, the back of the Tenney House features a custom, eat-in kitchen in classic black and white, featuring soapstone countertops, updated appliances and ample storage. Step through French doors to enjoy morning coffee or a glass of wine on a screened porch. Also adjacent to the porch is a formal dining room, perfect for intimate dinner parties. A second porch provides extra entertainment space or a secluded spot to enjoy the charming garden. And that is just the 1st floor, come explore the 2nd and 3rd floors with a surprise in the attic. The Tenney House…history you’ll love living.
