186 High Street, Newburyport
Price: $1,195,000
Size: 4,052 square feet
Bedrooms: 6
Baths: 3.5

Built in 1790 for merchant Edward Rand, this centuries-old house in Newburyport is an eye-catching example of Federal-style architecture. The home has been maintained and restored by the same owners for the past 25 years and now awaits new caretakers.

It’s centrally located, situated on a one-third-acre plot that’s three blocks from downtown. Plus, it stretches to more than 4,000 square feet, making the price tag of $295 per square foot seem like a relative bargain. Inside, there are 10-foot ceilings, seven fireplaces, six bedrooms, a grand staircase connecting all three levels, and an updated kitchen. In the yard, there’s a heated pool, mature plantings, and a restored two-story barn.
