Not my favorite tour of Portsmouth homes, but our tour guide was very nice and knowledgeable. It is worth the visit, IMO.We did not get to see the gardens as there was a wedding when we were there.

This is a truly grand home with strong adherence to the Georgian architecture style. The exterior of the home is in strong need of repair and painting. Admission is only $6 person person for a guided 1 hour tour. Our tour guide "Jim" was excellent...More
