Relax and rejuvenate in a bright airy antique home on a historic peninsula near Crane’s Beach, MA Just a few minutes walk to the ocean, this A 2.5 acre property is surrounded by 216 acres of protected land. A former colonial dairy, it has unobstructed gorgeous tidal marsh views towards the Steep Hill section of world famous Crane’s Beach. Beach and kayak access is one mile further out and Plum Island Sanctuary is close.
Bring binoculars in all seasons as migratory birds- egrets, eagles, herons, osprey and more abound in the views from the house. The tidal marsh surrounding is described in the natural history book- “The House in Ipswich Marsh” written by a neighboring author. The nearby wharf was the first colonial settlement in town.

The home is decorated with art and has a kitchen stocked with fine pottery and there is a private art studio. A short drive further out is Great and Little Neck- home of the famous little neck clam.
