Along the shore of Sagamore Creek in beautiful Portsmouth NH, you'll find Tidewatch Condominium, 'A Seacoast Community of Timeless Perfection.' The lifestyle here offers a rare combination of rural beauty and urban convenience. It's a setting where you have room to breathe and relax. All residences are sited on high ground to maximize the best views of the water, woods, and marshland. Great care was taken to ensure the privacy of individual homeowners and the integrity of the natural environment.

If you ask around, locals will tell you that Tidewatch Condominium is in a perfect location...privately tucked off a road that takes you to downtown Portsmouth, the beaches of Rye, and major routes with shopping centers. In just a few minutes, you can be in Market Square to enjoy great restaurants, a lively music and arts scene, fabulous boutiques and many historical sites. When you drive back home, you get to enjoy the peace and serenity of your low-maintenance lifestyle. The best of both worlds!

Sagamore Creek, Portsmouth NH

Sagamore Creek is a wonderful place to set out and explore the Seacoast by kayak, canoe or paddleboard! It's a saltwater estuary that flows eastward from the Urban Forestry Center into Little Harbor, north to the Piscataqua River and Portsmouth Harbor, and due east between Rye and New Castle to the Atlantic Ocean.


There are 117 condominium units in 44 buildings, plus a mailroom and maintenance building, constructed in 3 phases over a 20-year period (from approximately 1986 to 2007). Tidewatch Condominium encompasses 53.5 acres of land at 579 Sagamore Avenue, near the equally popular Seacoast towns of Rye and New Castle.

The monthly fee is $586 per unit, which includes water, sewer, master insurance, exterior maintenance of all buildings, common area landscaping and maintenance, snow and trash removal, etc.
