Spectacular “Earthrowl House” beckons owners to enjoy gentle turn of the 19th century high style in the finest 21st century comfort. Here there are unmistakable echoes of an age when city dwellers escaped to the Isles of Shoals and its two grand summer hotels. An era when Presidents Chester Arthur, Howard Taft and later FDR came to the Little Boar's Head District for summer respite. Constructed in 1890 by Captain W. H. Jacques and moved to its present location in 1947, today the residence is thoroughly up-to-date from its granite and mahogany kitchen to fresh oak and mahogany in-laid floors. One enjoys fine Atlantic views looking directly out to the Shoals. To the rear are pastoral vistas and access to marsh canals and abundant seashore wildlife. Watch the ocean's moods from a magnificent full-length porch or the grand, formal full-length front room with its two fireplaces and huge picture windows. All rooms here are well proportioned with high period ceilings. There is a splendid dining room and cozy den. A sunporch allows informal space to relax, entertain and contemplate both the ocean and the marsh. Make no mistake, this is a perfect blend of old world and new. And with seven sunny bedrooms and four sophisticated new baths, finding space for visitors is not a problem. Old Captain Jacques would have been duly impressed by how this special property has evolved. And you will be too.
