Plum Island house description

This home has everything to make your Plum Island vacation the experience you want!

The house was completely renovated in 2012 with all modern amenities, comfortable furniture and tasteful decorations. Inside the home you will find a bright and sunny 3 season Sunporch, perfect for relaxing with your morning coffee or a good book. The first floor is an open concept living area with a living room, kitchen and dining area, and a bathroom with a custom tiled, walk-in shower. You will find wood floors, recessed lighting, granite counters, stainless appliances, a breakfast bar and full size washer and dryer. The kitchen is fully equipped with all your cooking needs, including a lobster pot! There is also wireless Internet, a flat screen tv, and blue-ray player.

The second floor has 4 bedrooms and a full bath. All bedrooms are sunny and roomy with wood floors and large closets with plenty of space to unpack and settle in. The first bedroom has a queen memory foam mattress. The second bedroom has a queen bed. The third has two twin beds. And the fourth bedroom has a daybed with a pop-up trundle underneath that can be used as either two more singles, or a queen if they are put together. This room can also be used as a sitting room or office, with a second TV, a small desk, and views of the basin. The bathroom is large and has a bathtub with shower and granite counter on the sink. All bed linens and towels are provided. The house also has 2 zone central heating and cooling .

Outside the house, you will find 3 decks, one on the front and 2 on the back. The front deck is perfect for relaxing in the sun, furnished with rocking chairs. The back decks both have water views of the basin. The lower deck is equipped with a table for outdoor dining. The upper deck, furnished with a conversation set, is perfect for watching birds on the basin, the sunset, or star gazing at night. There is also a private outdoor shower with hot and cold water, and a gas grill for outdoor cooking.

You will have many options when venturing away from the house. The beach is a short 4 minute walk away. This beach, though public, is far enough away from any public parking that it is never crowded and feels quite private. The life-guard beach is about a ten minute walk away, or a 2 minute drive. The basin access is also minutes away and offers options for swimming, kayaking and fishing. The Parker Wildlife Reservation is less than a mile away and offers year-round hiking and birdwatching. Or, take a bike ride to the tip of the island and see the lighthouse. Add Mad Martha's Cafe, a block away, for breakfast or lunch, the Plum Island Grille for dinner, and a convenience store and liquor store in between, and you will never need to leave the island.

But, if you do choose to go off island, downtown Newburyport is only a ten minute drive away. Newburyport is a classic New England fishing village with quaint, narrow, cobblestone streets offering many dining and shopping options. From here, you also have the choice of many different water excursions. Newburyport has many events throughout the year, so be sure to check the city's website to see what may be happening while you are there.

In about one hour, you can get to downtown Boston either by car or commuter rail. Or, you could get to any number of other coastal villages like Gloucester. Rockport, Portsmith, York, Ogunquit or Kennebunkport. An hour and a half will get you to the White Mountains of New Hampshire.
