65 High Street, “The Tenney House”, is a very special property. Dr. Samuel Tenney, a surgeon at Bunker Hill, constructed the home in 1798 in the Exeter Town Square, adjacent to the Church on Front Street. In 1893, the home was moved by oxen across Exeter’s “Great Bridge” to its current 65 High Street location. The 6 bedroom Federal home embodies many grand architectural features that have been carefully preserved. The original expansive front door is ornamented with a doric style portico and leads to a grand foyer facing the main winding staircase. A formal living room and a library, both feature original fireplaces with elegant hand-carved mantels. The living room fireplace is flanked by 2 westerly facing windows styled within recessed archways. A designer eat-in kitchen has custom cabinets, soap stone countertops and high-end appliances. French doors lead to a 3 season porch and a westerly screened-in porch wrapping around the formal dining room. 2d and 3d floors carry 6 bedrooms. The master is expansive with 2 walk-in closets on either side of the fireplace. One guest room has a cedar closet that leads to a “sleeping porch” and connects to the other guest room. Located on a quiet street with direct access to the PEA athletic fields and trails. History, charm and character have been preserved in this rare Exeter Property.
