On the Market: An 1850 Colonial in Newburyport
With a very cute street address.
6 Olive Street, Newburyport
Size: 2,000 square feet
This picture-perfect Colonial in Newburyport sits at the corner of modern luxury and antique charm. (That’s aside from its very cute street address: 6 Olive Street.) Steps from the Merrimack River, the five-bedroom home boasts 1850s bones without the arduous upkeep.
To start, the place is outfitted with central air. It received a new high-efficiency gas boiler in 2014, plus a new roof and gutters in 2015. The chef’s kitchen, meanwhile, boasts a five-burner Bertazzoni gas range, a SubZero refrigerator, and a stainless steel sink. As for more time-honored features, there are original pine hardwood floors, period sinks, exposed brick walls, and a clawfoot tub in one of the bathrooms. Around back, there’s a blissfully maintenance-free fenced-in patio. The whole package comes to $300 per square foot—not bad for one of the the North Shore’s most charming towns.
