Located under 20 minutes southwest of Portsmouth, NH, Stratham is on target to become an extended “suburb” of Portsmouth as Portsmouth continues to expand in the near future. There are roughly 7300 residents, primarily 37% of Stratham’s population consists of families, and 35% of people that live there are between 45 and 65 years old. Bordered to the west by the Squamscott River (a tributary of the Piscataqua River), Stratham is a great option of young families, offering larger square footage at a lower price than Portsmouth. Stratham consists of a growing number of upscale communities, some of which border the river. The school system is growing, and at the high school level, students attend Exeter High School, a reputable neighboring school district.
