Don’t miss an opportunity to own this beautifully restored 1752 colonial located in the heart of Byfield village and the birthplace of Eliphalet Pearson, Harvard graduate and first preceptor of Phillips Andover Academy. Uncompromising attention to detail has been given by the current owner in preserving and restoring this home and adding the modern conveniences that today's buyers expect, including a cooks kitchen and luxurious marble baths. Architectural features include original wide pine floors, exposed beams, gunstock corner posts, raised pine paneling, original sheathing, 5 working fireplaces and cedar wood shingled roof. The main house boasts a new sunroom with radiant heat and walls of windows to take in the view of the secluded yard with established perennial gardens. A newer barn maintains the look and feel of the period, with parking for two cars, ample workshop space and full second floor with endless possibilities. Minutes to Route 95 and downtown Newburyport. A rare gem.
