Salisbury property makes beachfront dreams a reality

By Linda Greenstein

---- — Do you dream of living on a bluff overlooking a sandy beach? Would you like to be able to step out your door onto the beach next summer? Want to fall asleep to the rhythm of the waves rolling up on the shore or watch the sun come up over the ocean each morning? For the new owner of a unique multi-family property featuring a single-family house and a duplex on desirable quiet stretch of North End Boulevard in Salisbury, this dream will be a reality.

The charming beachfront 1910 single-family house, sitting high on a sandy bluff, offers amazing views from Cape Ann to the Isles of Shoals and direct access to the soft sands of Salisbury Beach — one of the most stunning sandy beachfronts on the East Coast. The two-story, four-bedroom house has an open floor plan that leads to a large oceanfront entertainment deck. Standing on the deck, watching the waves crash on the shore, tasting the salty air and feeling the cool breeze, is a sensory delight.

Perfect for year-round beachfront living the house has a first floor kitchen, dining room and family room that lead out to the oceanfront deck and work well for entertaining or everyday family living. The deck offers plenty of room for seating, dining and cooking on a gas grill. It would be a great pleasure to host a gathering on the beach and cook a casual meal on the deck or equally delightful to dine inside and watch as the sun disappears below the horizon on cool fall evening.

The well-organized kitchen has stainless steel appliances, hardwood cabinets and a ceramic tile floor.

The living room has exposed beams, lovely woods floor, multiple windows and glass doors that frame the ocean view and lead out to the beachfront deck.

Upstairs the bedrooms feature spectacular views of the ocean and beach. The master bedroom has a vaulted ceiling, good closet space and large bay window overlooking the ocean. All the bedrooms are spacious, bright and relaxing with the calming sounds of the ocean in the background.

With four bedrooms, two baths, garage a

nd off-street parking and the beautiful beach just outside the door, the owner is sure to be popular with friends and family.

The single-family home offers gas heating and even central air conditioning for those days when the cooling ocean breezes are not enough. All three homes have public water and sewer.

This special property also includes a street-side duplex that was completely rebuilt from the foundation up in 1999. The duplex units do offer ocean views, a deck and easy access to the beach. The duplex units are in excellent condition with updated kitchens featuring handsome cabinetry and

nice appliances, tiled baths, heating and mechanical system. The ceramic tile floors are perfect for the beachfront location.

With three bedrooms and two baths each, the almost mirrored duplex units offers year-round, sunlit and refreshing living spaces on multiple levels. The third level bedrooms with skylights and a seating area are beautiful and offer nice privacy. The third floor has a fabulous balcony offering birds-eye’s views of the ocean and beachfront. It would be a spectacular spot to watch fireworks in the summer or simply to appreciate the sunrises year-round.

Just steps from the sandy beach and ocean, each spacious unit has been beautifully planned with for a comfortable contemporary lifestyle and includes off-street parking, plenty of storage and a private entrance. The attractive homes are in move-in condition and offer an excellent rental history in the highly desirable beachfront neighborhood.

Adjacent to Routes 95, 495 and 1, Salisbury is well located for commuters whether they are heading for Boston, Portsmouth, Massachusetts’ technology belt or the nearby Newburyport business, technology and industrial district. The area offers fabulous restaurants, entertainment options and tax-free shopping is right next-door in Seabrook, NH.
