Property description

Fabulous 5 Bedroom Vintage Plum Island Beachfront Cottage - Circa 1900 - Amazing Location!

Location...Location...Location...that says it all! Spectacular sunsets, a private sandy beach, and panoramic Harbor views of Downtown Newburyport! The Arctic Cottage offers you one of Plum Island's premier locations to enjoy your family's vacation or week-end getaway!

Imagine yourself relaxing on the beach on a beautiful sunny day - eyes closed listening to the waves, feeling the warmth of the sun on your face - ah, this is what vacations are supposed to be all about! Retreat back to the wrap around porch and enjoy the shade while still taking in the breathtaking views of Newburyport Harbor.

Walk for miles on the continuous beach that stretches from your front door (the Northwestern tip of Plum Island) all the way to Sandy Point on the Southwestern Tip - approximately 12 miles one-way! Take a stroll down the beach a few hundred yards from the cottage and purchase tickets for the next deep sea fishing trip at Captain Lady's Fishing Charters - catch Stripers, Haddock, Cod, Pollack, Halibut, Mackerel, and Blues! Plan an evening of fun aboard one of the Sunset Dinner Cruises departing from Plum Island Point and dance the night away under the stars.

Come and enjoy boating, kayaking, etc. on some of the most scenic waterways along the entire East Coast!

For the avid fisherman, Newburyport Harbor, Joppa Flats, and the mouth of the Merrimac River are known for the most productive Striped Bass fishing in New England and the entire East coast!

The property is located at the Northwestern tip of Plum Island, 5-10 minutes from downtown Newburyport - fast becoming the #1 Summertime Tourist destination point in Massachusetts.

Newburyport, known as the "Landside Nantucket" (only better!) Easily accessible to Boston & Logan Airport only 35-40 minutes away by car, or 1 hour by train. Newburyport has an extensive offering of Restaurants, Shops, Boutiques, Art Galleries, Theater, Museums, and countless Historical attractions to enjoy! There's fun for everyone to enjoy!

Take a scenic one hour train ride into Boston for the day and catch a Red Sox game, walk the Freedom Trail, visit famous Faneuil Hall and Quincy Market, shop on Boston's trendy Newbury Street, and enjoy dinner in Boston's famous Italian North End!

Or visit some of the other countless attractions Boston has to offer - The New England Aquarium, Children's Museum, Museum of Science, and the Museum of Fine Arts - to name just a few!

This 1900's vintage Plum Island cottage - known as the "Arctic Cottage" is one of the oldest cottages on Plum Island. Originally built as a seasonal cottage, many of it's architectural features were designed to take advantage of it's seaside location. The distinctive wrap around porch that provides shade and shelter after a long day out on the beach, pocket windows that mysteriously disappear into the walls to take advantage of the summertime breeze. The expansive windows throughout the cottage bringing the outdoors - inside, transforming the cozy beachfront cottage into an "on the water" experience!

To get a "bird's eye" view of Plum Island and to view the cottage's location - go to Google Maps and enter the address - 17 82nd Street Newburyport, MA.
