http://www.SeanRPerkins.com - A town of just under 7,000 residents, Newbury Massachusetts is located just 32 miles northeast of Boston. Located just minutes from the historic seaport of Newburyport. Newbury also includes this village of Byfield and Plum Island.
During the 18th and 19th centuries, Newbury business and industry reflected a pattern that developed throughout New England. Activity centered on the river because of the water power it generated. The Parker River Falls created a manufacturing area known as "Mill Village" and once had six water powered mills, manufacturing various products from woolens to snuff. Today, Byfield is primarily residential, with many examples remaining of it's fine antique architecture
Set upon the banks of the Parker River, this updated Antique style home offers unparalleled river views from every room! Originally the blacksmith's home of Old Newbury, this property was built in 1750 and was completely rebuilt 10 years ago. This is an incomparable location that also includes a lot across the street, totaling over 2 acres of pure bliss. Exquisite landscaping features a stunning riverfront garden, mature plantings, and even the architectural remains of the old grist mill.
The Gate House sits at the edge of the falls and has potential for a truly one of a kind home office or guest quarters.
Meticulously crafted, the interior is a combination of impeccable taste and high-end finish. The open floor plan is an entertainer's dream, with beautiful views of the river and the falls at virtually every turn.
