About the Property

House, 4 Bdrm/2.5 Baths/Den/Sunroom, Sleeps 14 in beds

Our house is located in the middle of an old tree-lined, family neighborhood with the Merrimac River and a launching dock at the bottom of the street. Up until this summer, the house has been owner occupied and is fully furnished with all the necessities and then some. The backyard is shaded with large trees and can be enjoyed from the first floor deck off the kitchen or the second floor balcony off the den.

A 15 minute walk through a family and dog friendly neighborhood or along the river will lead you to the historic seaport village of Newburyport. There, one will find countless fine specialty and antique stores, restaurants, an old movie theatre, a live performance theater, a boat dock, river walk and a park on the river with live outdoor entertainment. There is also a bike and walking trail and the ocean is a four mile drive or bike ride away. Whale watching tours and deep sea-fishing excursions are offered from downtown locations and there is a Maritime Museum as well as many other historic buildings and homes.

Within a couple of blocks from home there are two public parks with playgrounds, a baseball and a soccer field and tennis courts. One park sits on the river and has a public docking ramp. Plum Island Beach, Salisbury State Beach and the Parker River Natural Wildlife Refuge are all just a few miles away as is the Plum Island Airport.

Two miles in the opposite direction of town there are two large grocery stores, drug stores, gas stations, a K-mart, the C and J bus service to Logan Airport and South Station and direct access to Interstate 95. And two miles south is the train station that offers service to Boston's North Station where you can arrive in downtown Boston within an hour and avoid the driving and parking hassles of the city.

Owner info

About the owner: We are flight attendants and travel extensively during the summer months so we thought it would be nice to share our home and town while we are seeing other parts of the world.

Why the Owner Chose Newburyport, MA, USA:
This has been our primary home for the past eighteen years, the house in which we raised our daughter who is now off to college. We decided to employ this house to help off college tuition. Our location is ideal, being less than a mile from the lovely downtown of Newburyport with all its shops and restaurants and bars. In addition we have within a two mile radius everything essential and more....grocery, drug and liquor store, local hospital, Marshall's and KMart, Interstate 95, the Merrimac River...

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Newburyport is a wonderful city live in and raise a family but the bonus is it is just as wonderful to visit. Situated at the cross section of the Merrimac River and the Atlantic Ocean, the historic seaport village offers delightful specialties shops and numerous dining venues.
