95 Prospect | Newburyport, Massachusetts real estate & homes - A small, affluent coastal city just 28 miles northeast of Boston, Newburyport is an historic seaport with a vibrant tourism industry. An ideal commuting location, the MBTA commuter rail, Interstate 95, Route 1 and Route 1A are accessible within minutes. 

Newburyport is quaint and an ideal walking city.  Just blocks away from the fabulous Newburyport restaurants, shops and waterfront is 95 Prospect Street. 

Originally built in 1830, the building was completely renovated in 2005 and transformed into 3 condominium units. Unit #1 is located on the entire 1st floor of the building, with entrances in both the front of the building and the rear, adjacent to the private gravel driveway, which can accommodate 2 cars. 

The unit comes with 3 deeded off street parking spots, an especially important feature during the winter months when off street parking is mandatory and space is at a premium.  

The owners have continued to improve this unit with the installation of Restoration Hardware cabinetry in the bathrooms, lighting fixtures, curtain rods and brackets. California Closets was also contracted to install a custom pantry off the kitchen, and to embellish the closet space to make the best possible use of the already generous closet space.  Because of the 1st floor location of the unit, it's perfect for those looking for convenient in-town living, without having the challenge of stairs.  Condo living also doesn't mean that you have to forgo outdoor space. 

The owners have created a zen inspired bricked patio area complete with boxwoods, evergreens and perennials. The patio is fenced providing plenty of scale and privacy.  A full unfinished basement area provides additional storage and is easily accessible for larger items. Complete with Central AC, a 2005 hot water heater, furnace and an impeccably maintained unit and building, this property is absolutely turn-key.  

Upon entering the unit, you are greeted with warm honey toned wide pine flooring which graces the entire unit. A beautiful gas burning fireplace (with a built in cabinet above the mantel to accommodate a flat screen television if you wish) is the focal point for the living room. Crown molding, chair rails, and a beautiful neutral paint palate highlight the craftsmanship of the space.  

The kitchen features crisp white cabinetry, black polished granite countertop and an adjacent pantry area providing ample storage space. The kitchen also opens up to the dining room allowing the chef to mingle with their guests. 

The dining room is spacious enough to accommodate a table seating 10 or more and feature French doors leading to the patio.  

The quality continues to the Master Bedroom with private full bath and features a surprising patio area providing the perfect spot to sit with that 1st cup of coffee of the day. 

The guest bedroom could also double as an office space .

What is the best light for shooting real estate video tours? - When shooting real estate video tours, especially interiors, the quality of the light is what makes the difference between a poor to average video tour and an exceptional one.

Contrary to what most Realtors like ("shoot in the middle of the day with bright sun and blue sky"), that is actually the worst time of day to shoot a home!  The difference between the (cooler) color temperature and high intensity of the light outdoors, contrasted with the much darker and warmer (orange) color temperature of the light indoors, makes shooting interior video extremely difficult.  And the results are mixed at best.  During the winter months when the sun is very low in the sky all day and is also reflecting off of the white snow is even more difficult - and sometimes impossible!

Shooting on an overcast day or at dusk creates a much more pleasant blend of interior and exterior light. The light is soft and indirect, unlike during the middle of the day.  Instead of blown out, white windows, you can see through the windows to the outside view.  

The ambient light inside the home is much more beautiful than dealing with harsh, streaming sunlight coming through windows, washing out all of the colors.  Too bright highlights and dark shadows can make for an unpleasant look.  Shooting after dark actually removes all traces of that super bright, cooler, outdoor sunlight and the results can be stunning.  Throw in a roaring fireplace and some well placed lit candles, and you can have a video tour that really stands out from the pack!

Granted, it's not always possible or practical to specifically choose when you shoot video for a home, but if it's possible to make that choice, choose a time that will show off your listing in it's best possible light!

The North River, salt marshes, pine forests, and over 500 acres of town conservations land typify the character and flavor of this pretty New England town, noted for its fine schools and colonial architecture. The North River is today known for its natural beauty and recreational opportunities including boating, swimming, access to the ocean and great striped bass fishing. For much of the town’s history it was noted for shipbuilding and over 1,000 sailing vessels were built along its banks, including the 464 ton Mt. Vernon built just up river in 1812.
Today, Norwell has a suburban residential character which residents feel has not detracted from its charm as a small, friendly, rural town. The Greenbush line of the MBTA Commuter Rail can be found just one mile from Norwell for an easy commute to Boston.
