Welcome to 916 Pequot Avenue. Poised on Southport’s most coveted street, the Captain Thorp House is a gracious 1874 Georgian Colonial beauty. Located in the heart of historic Southport Village, enjoy walking to restaurants, train, beach and harbor. A pair of copper beech trees welcomes you to this iconic coastal home. Featured in Better Homes and Gardens, distinctive living spaces have maintained their historic character with four original fireplaces and custom built-ins. The home has undergone two renovations, first by Simon Banks of Banks Shipping Line in 1892 and the second by celebrated local architect Cameron Clarke at the turn of the 20th century. An expanded, modern kitchen features professional appliances, Vermont cabinetry and a marble floor. Outside, the covered porch leads to beautiful architectural gardens, a terrace surrounded by flowering trees, a gunite pool/spa, and barn. The custom slate roof is crowned with an iron widow’s walk and a compass rose adorns the floor of the center hall, harkening back to the home’s maritime roots.
