The OP said they would spend about $300,000. That will not go far along the Seacoast in New Hampshire. Certainly less than the Groton area. The OP has also expressed interest in living in a town with good schools. Portsmouth is nice, kind of touristy now, but as I understand, the schools do not perform well. There are towns in that area that could work, though they are not on the Seacoast. The OP should post in the Maine and/or New Hampshire forums for recommendations if they haven’t already. Jay

An inland town that might work in that area is Stratham... Altough I say inland it has coastline along the Great Bay and is only 1 town in from the ocean

Some years ago my sister worked at the Groton Navy Base. She looked all over the area and chose to live in Westerly, Rhode Island. It's a really great little town!
