In conjunction with a new hotel development, this residential piece acts as the announcement of things to come in an area ready for change.
There is an art to making a new building feel old. That art is evident in the thoughtful design of Harbour Hill, where traditional materials such as brick, clapboard and stone have been used to craft a building in keeping with the historic structures of downtown Portsmouth.
The same care has been given to distinguishing the residences from the adjacent hotel and providing a unique combination of privacy and accessibility. Although they create a different architectural appearance, the residences are clustered in a separate building, linked to the hotel by an interior passage to allow residents to access hotel facilities.
But perhaps the most intriguing feature of Harbour Hill is the opportunity to enjoy easy, one-floor living and still have room for overnight visitors at the hotel right next door, where resident's guests will receive preferred treatment.
One, two and three bedrooms are spread across a variety of floor plans from 820 to 2200 square feet. Each residence includes altitudinous ceilings, elegant French doors and Juliet balconies. A common roof terrace offers a social atmosphere for residents, offering exceptional harbor views. Security is guaranteed with assured covered garage parking. Other advantages include ground floor retail and lobby access to the hotel.
DeStefano Architects served as the design architect for this development.
