Two wonderful working fireplaces, two parlors, formal dining room with pocket doors, large welcoming kitchen. Original stained glass windows, gleaming hardwood floors. Upstairs artist studio with sink and built-in cabinets.

Excellent neighborhood: Steps to shopping, restaurants, parks, schools, and the town library. Ten minutes to Newburyport, fifteen to the beach, five to the Merrimac River.

Zoned a two-family, this very fine Queen Anne aso has a huge attic and well-lit dry basement with work room, an additional 2500 square feet not included in square footage above. Income, condo-making and expansion potential.
