Video of 16 Lane's Ten Acres Road | Merrimac, Massachusetts real estatet & homes - Merrimac, Massachusetts is a cozy New England town with easy access to 495/95. It has a small town feel with quaint annual events such as the Santa Parade at the beginning of each December - Santa even visits every street on Christmas eve. There is the Old Home Days celebration every summer, and the New England bean "suppas" and Boy Scout barbeques are enjoyed by all.

Merrimac is located close to everything great that living in New England has to offer. You're minutes to tax free New Hampshire shopping, 10 miles to the beach, 35 miles to Boston, 20 miles to the historic port of Portsmouth, and just7 miles to the artistic seaport town of Newburyport at the mouth of the Merrimac River.

This home is located on a tree-lined, private dead end street where it is not uncommon to catch a glimpse of wildlife; like the blue heron, wild turkeys, ducks and the occasionally deer. You're walking distance to Lake Attitash, Skips (a 1950s style burger and ice cream restaurant that hosts a weekly classic and antique car shows, and just a couple of miles from Hodgies Ice Cream, arguably the best homemade ice cream in the county! The commuter rail stops in nearby Newburyport and Haverhill for those commuting to Boston.

The large level lot gives you lots of privacy. It is professionally landscaped with flowering trees and bushes that continually add color to the yard: fire bolt cherry , Bradford pear, Kwanza Cherry, white and pink dogwoods trees, forsythia, bayberry, flowering quince, and pink and bridal white spireas & lilac bushes dot the landscape.

An irrigation system insures that your lawn is green and lush all summer long, and the shed is big enough to store a riding lawn mower and all your outside tools to keep your garage uncluttered.

Feel like a walk in the woods? Go ahead, they are nice dry woods with roughed in trails.

The extra large formal dining room offers gleaming red oak floors and crown moldings.

Upstairs, the master suite has a large walk in closet and oversized master bath. Beyond the master closet there is bonus space you can use for storage. There is brand new carpeting throughout the hallway and all four large bedrooms.
