http://www.CherylCaldwellHomes.com - Newbury, Massachusetts, established in 1635 is a town rich in history and beauty. It’s boundaries are filled with beaches, marsh land and farm land. Newbury is also the home of the Parker River and a portion of Plum Island, providing ample opportunities for boating, fishing, swimming and bird watching. Located next to the historic seaport of Newburyport, less than 1 hour north of Boston and ½ hour south of Maine and New Hampshire – it is easily accessible and becoming a well known tourist destination, while keeping it’s historic charm and character.
8 Parker Street is located a stone’s throw from the Newbury Upper Green. The Upper Green was once used as a training ground for the military, but is now better known as a town common, with a duck pond that doubles as a skating pond in the winter for young and old alike, a baseball field for little leaguers, the venue for the fireman’s muster during Yankee Homecoming events and is even home of the Annual Tree Lighting for the Town of Newbury’s own Christmas Tree. It’s become a focal point looked upon fondly by residents and visitors alike, and the homes that border the Upper Green have become some of the most sought after addresses in the area.
The home at 8 Parker Street was originally built in 1736 and has been tastefully maintained and improved by the owners in keeping with the character of the home.
A partially fenced level yard with bricked patio area is the perfect spot for family dinners, entertaining and outdoor fun and games. The 1 car detached garage, has an exterior as attractive as the home itself and features new custom doors to match the character of the property.
Within the past few years, the home has been improved by a new cedar shingle roof, septic system, hot water heater, water filtration system, 2nd floor windows, complete kitchen and bath renovation, electrical improvements, extensive foundation work, landscaping, and so much more.
You'll immediately feel at home the minute you walk in. The gorgeous fireplace is the focal point of the living room which also boasts a wall of built-in bookcases, encouraging you to choose your favorite reading material and sit by the fire awhile. Warm pine floors lead throughout the 1st floor.
The dining room, located adjacent to the kitchen, is the perfect place for large family dinners or cozy intimate meals.
The spacious kitchen has been renovated with custom cabinetry and outfitted with the modern conveniences today’s chefs enjoy and features Fischer & Paykel, Bosch and Amana appliances.
A 1st floor bedroom with adjacent full bath provides flexible living arrangements for those needing easy access and no stairs. A door off the bedroom leads directly to the backyard.
The 2nd floor Master Bedroom provides a beautiful and peaceful spot to retreat with cathedral ceilings and beautiful angles of the cape roofline which playfully bounce the sunlight around the walls.
An additional bedroom on the 2nd floor is also spacious and has painted pine flooring. A full renovated bath, complete with laundry, rounds out the 2nd floor.
8 Parker Street is a short 15 minute walk to downtown Newburyport, a leisurely bike ride to the beaches of Plum Island, and minutes to the Commuter Rail into Boston, Route 1, 1A, and 95.
