Is there anything more magical than peak autumn foliage in New England? This is when the beautiful Seacoast peninsula of Dover Point, Dover NH comes alive in brilliant bursts of color along its tidal waterways! Here, the Cocheco, Salmon Falls and Bellamy rivers flow to the Piscataqua, past Portsmouth Harbor and out to the Atlantic Ocean. It's truly paradise for nature lovers and boaters!
Dover Point is home to some of the greater Seacoast area's finest waterfront properties, many with private docks. You'll find these luxury homes in beautiful neighborhoods such as Captain's Landing (Waterloo Circle), Breezy Hill Landing (Shore Lane), Foster's Drive, Landing Way and The Paddocks at Tidewater Farms (Saddle Trail Drive).
One of our recent Dover Point waterfront sellers commented,
We love the river views throughout the house...and waking to beautiful sunrises from the master bedroom! We have also enjoyed watching the wildlife, especially the eagles and cardinals, from our deck.
The historic city of Dover NH (c.1623) is a great up-and-coming place to live, especially for young professionals and families seeking value. It's a prime spot for commuting on Route 95 north to Portland ME or south to Boston MA, each an hour away. And both downtown Portsmouth NH and the University of New Hampshire are just 10 minutes away!
Dover has a well-regarded public school system with an impressive, modern high school...it's campus has one of the largest displays of solar panels in the state and a great Career Technical Center. There is also Saint Thomas Aquinas High School, a co-ed school situated on the north side of the Dover Point peninsula and Portsmouth Christian Academy, a 50-acre campus next to the Bellamy River.
Wentworth-Douglass Hospital, a Dover-based non-profit health organization, has been named best on the Seacoast and is a member of the Massachusetts General Hospital family.

One of our Seller clients who lived on the Piscataqua River shared,
We have so many wonderful memories of living here! I'll always remember an eagle sitting in a tree just outside the upstairs office...a pair of swans that visited often...kayaking and boating along the river. Everyone who visited always commented that it was such an amazing, magical, private spot. It's almost like living in a very well-equipped tree house!
