On the Market: The “Antithesis of Cookie Cutter” Homes
75 Scotland Road, Newbury
Size: 3,928 square feet
Homes in coastal towns like Newbury are often covered in clapboard, but this house on Scotland Road swaps wood for stonework. Called “the antithesis of cookie cutter” by its listing agent, Melissa Silva, the place is truly one of a kind. The property is fronted by granite steps, stone arches, and wrought iron gates, and contains large swaths of perennial plantings.
Built in 1958, the castle-like construction offers a main home and an in-law suite on the garden level. The three-bedroom main house boasts a three-season sunroom that looks out to the stone temple in the yard, while the two-bedroom lower-level apartment has a wood-burning fireplace and an etched glass conservatory with its own castle door entrance. The garden-level unit is approved for use as a bed and breakfast or Airbnb, or could be used as a home office.
