Owner info

Year Purchased: 1972

About the owner: Like to meet and greet new friends. On a recent trip to India my children commented that there is no place on this earth that I don't run into someone I know.

Why the Owner Chose Salem, MA, USA:
Ideally located to downtown Salem with out waiting in traffic or trying to hunt down an illusive parking space. Also after enjoying the sights and sound of Salem you can walk to the commuter train station to take the inbound train to Boston or the outbound Train to Newburyport, Rockport, Gloucester or Manchester by the Sea.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Close to everything you may want or need. While walking the nieghborhood you'll get to see the GIANT GNOME that lives next door or view the massive garden that is home of prize winning GIANT PUMPKINS over 1,000 lbs.
