Property description

The “Top of the Plum” is located at 33 Fordham Way, Newbury, MA. (Plum Island). This home has a breathtaking unobstructed view of Atlantic Ocean from second and third floors. Come and enjoy the sun, sand and surf at prestigious Plum Island Beach only minutes from Historic Newburyport with its many famous restaurants, exciting shops and picturesque riverfront boardwalks. At the Northern tip of the Island, there are chartered boats that leave morning, afternoon and evenings for fishing, whale watching and party excursions. If you are looking for an adventure on the water, the Plum Island Kayaking Rental Company out of Newburyport offers a full line of kayaks and guide to make this experience one to remember. The Plum Island Basin and Sound is the most ideal place to learn. It is a 'kayaker's heaven', with its calm and shallow waters and the many tributaries to explore. The Sound takes you through the Wildlife Sanctuary and allows you to enjoy the many birds flying overhead or resting on its banks. The quiet solitude on the pristine waters will remain in your memories forever. Come enjoy what nature has to offer its BEST!!!

The open concept allows ocean views from an immaculate kitchen with an adjoining dining room that leads to a spacious glassed-in porch that is separated by an open six-seated bar. There is a breakfast “nook” directly off the kitchen, with all the necessary appliances, leading into the new two-story addition. The new addition has a contemporary flair with 18’ ceilings, a ceiling fan, and catwalk with 4 port hole windows to lighten up the room.

The upper level is referred to as the “lounge”. There is a large bar that seats eight comfortably with a beverage fridge and TV – ideal for watching sports or just quiet talk. There are ten glass windows and a french door leading onto a deck overlooking the ocean. There is a 360-degree view of the wildlife refuge, the marshes and the Atlantic Ocean. The views are spectacular, known for their glorious sunrises and magnificent sunsets. At night, the moon shining on the vast ocean waters will leave you with memories long after you’re gone.

The sleeping accommodations consist of four (4) bedrooms. There are 3 queen and a set of twins, ideal for small children. There are two and one-half (2.5) baths. The sheets, pillows and blankets are also furnished. I ask that you bring your own towels, (beach and bath).

The home is fully furnished with many amenities including a dishwasher, washer and dryer, BBQ grill, a furnished outdoor deck and a covered porch that supplies shade and protection from any inclement weather. The backyard is fenced-in which is ideal for children, and there is parking for 6-8 cars.

Come experience a piece of “heaven”, serenity at its best!! Escape to a getaway of sheer relaxation where only the sound of the waves crashing on the shore will interrupt your “peace of tranquility”!! This is a must “SEA”….for further information, please call.

There are no pets or smoking, thank you.

Owner info

Why the Owner Chose Plum Island:
We have owned this property for over 25 years and done major renovations, addition and upgrades. We absolutely love plum Island which is so private, quiet and the 'second' Martha's Vineyard. So much to see and do here just not enough time to do it all. The house is so large, comfortable with everything you need to call it 'home'. Come and enjoy!! A MUST SEA!!

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Plum Island has everything the Cape has without the crowds, traffic and summer congestion. There is never any traffic on or off the Island, even during the height of the summer season. Another reason to choose PI for you next relaxing vacation!!
