2 Andrews Lane | Amesbury, Massachusetts historic real estate & homes - Located on the banks of the Merrimack River, Amesbury Massachusetts is a suburban community north of Boston which offers an unusual industrial and manufacturing history. Conveniently located off Routes 95 and 495, Amesbury, MA is just minutes from Portsmouth NH, Hampton Beach NH, Newburyport MA, Salem MA, and Boston MA. First settled in 1645, the town's earliest industries included mills, shipyards, and a heavily used ferry operation across the Merrimac River to Newburyport. Along with the sturdy 19th century commercial buildings, Amesbury is rich in Federal period residences, which the community carefully preserves as its link to the past.

This is truly a Currier and Ives setting. The Point Shore area features has always been a premier neighborhood with the historic Lowell's boat shop and fines homes built from first period, through colonial and Victoria periods right up to the present.

The Jacob Fowler house, built in 1789 by the Fowler brothers, is the quintessential New England center chimney colonial home with outstanding period features, nestled on a hidden side street in the historic Point Shore neighborhood of Amesbury.

Located just one street back from the Merrimac River, this gracious home has a wonderful floor plan, great light and views of the river. With 2,900 square feet this surprisingly large home has been lovingly maintained and updated for over 20 years by the current owner.

The open kitchen and large fireplaced family room overlook the brick patio, and terraced landscaped yard with two charming out buildings and numerous plantings.

The fireplaced library and dining room both boast Georgian paneling wide pine floors and period molding. A roaring fire, a glass of wine and a good book ... and you're set!

With three bedrooms and a den on the second floor, plus a sky lit third floor studio there is plenty of room to pursue creative endeavors.

This is your opportunity to own a truly classic home.

Amesbury today is a thriving suburban community, dotted with evidence of it's historic past. Downtown offers distinctive shops and galleries, a wide array of services plus an eclectic choice of restaurants - all in a very walkable district.
