Fixer-Upper Friday: A Historical Home in Ipswich
This 1772 antique Colonial has four fireplaces and plenty of period detail.
83 High Street, Ipswich
Size: 1,942 square feet
There’s nothing like the distinct historical charm that radiates from the antique homes of the North Shore. The region’s centuries-old homes often fetch millions, however, which makes this aging fixer-upper in Ipswich an uncommon buying opportunity.
The 1772 Colonial is in rough shape, yes. But it has four fireplaces, built-ins, and plenty of period detail. Nevermind that the place is within walking distance to downtown Ipswich and the Commuter Rail.
The fixer-upper is situated on a one-acre parcel that includes a total of four structures: the main house, a shed, a mobile home (a crash pad while you renovate, perhaps?), and a two-story barn with a woodworking shop inside.
With an asking price of $205 per square foot, there’s still room in the budget to make significant upgrades to the house. Plus, its next owner will receive a resident pass to Crane Beach—a worthy investment, indeed.
