Our house is just a few yards away from the brand new Clipper City Rail Trail Walk or bike along the1.1 mile multi-use pathway. Haley’s Ice Cream and various bakeries, coffee shops, and restaurants located a short distance from the trail.
Just a block and half away are downtown Newburyport's Market Square where holiday events and live entertainment go on.
Newburyport/Plum Island is world-famous as a “natural history” destination. Recognized as one of the nation’s finest birdwatching areas, birders and nature enthusiasts from around the world come to this area.
There are whale watch cruises with Newburyport Whale Watch, deep-sea fishing boats, evening party boats, public docks, sunset cruises, and harbor tours.
Kayaking are ways to enjoy the river and sea. In the summer, the Merrimack River is full of boats; you don’t have to have your own to enjoy the beauty from the water. Instead, you can take a narrated harbor tour or a Plum Island Ecotour.
There are plenty of fish to be caught in the Merrimack River and offshore. If you enjoy fishing, you can cast your lines off the shore of Plum Island, or sign up for an off-shore excursion with the Captain’s Fishing Parties, Rocky Point Fishing Charters or the Clipper Fleet. Or hire a charter boat with Channel Edge Charters.
Bicycling, running, jogging and walking around the flat streets of the city are popular pastimes. Newburyport’s reputation for exquisite fare is well known throughout New England and beyond. Park your car and you are in walking distance to over thirty restaurants. Locals, day-trippers, and tourists flock to this city of dining delights, not only in the summer but year-round.
We hope you enjoy your vacation in our beautiful home.

*Please note, we have one nest security camera on the exterior front of the house.
**Please note that our 218-year-old home does not have central air. It does have seven air-conditioners, one in each bedroom and two on the first floor. The attic master suite in extreme weather conditions can become too hot for both the ceiling fan, skylight shades and air conditioner. We can not be held responsible for the weather.

About Monica M Welsh
Sean and I both work in Advertising in New York City. We bought the house shortly after moving from San Francisco to Newburyport. Since this was our first home, there has been a lot of love put into it. We added a brick sidewalk and landscaping not long after moving in. We enjoy golfing, biking and swimming in the area. We have a 14-year-old cockapoo named Brownie, that loves to chase after squirrels in our yard. After weeks in the city, Brownie is glad to enjoy her yard in Newburyport.
Monica M Welsh purchased this House in 2002
Why Monica M Welsh chose Newburyport
We chose Newburyport for its beauty and its schools. Being urban people, we wanted to live near where the action is. Our house is in a very desired location near town. We love being steps away from everything downtown. Running back to our house from a waterfront concert downtown is a nice convenience.
What makes this House unique
We have enormous windows with views of the water. The pedicabs run around our block all the time so catching a ride is easy. We have a treadmill in the master with a view of the river that is magnificent. Our home is stylish yet comfortable

This home had a charming blend of old with modern decor. Located in the heart of Newburyport, the house was a fabulous place to entertain and take advantage of the areas shopping and restaurants. All the bedrooms were large and comfortable. I definitely plan on staying at this home again.
