The owners of 237 Middle Road first came upon the land in 1999 after a canoe trip on the Parker River. The farming family that had owned the land for generations had decided to quietly sell off the two last remaining lots with frontage on the Parker and the owners wasted no time selecting the perfect lot to build their dream home.
This amazing property contains over 4 acres, with 92,000 square feet of upland and 135 feet of frontage on the Parker River shoreline. It is a short walk from Thurlow’s Bridge, the site of one of the first ferries across the Parker River. One of its closest neighbors is the 250 year-old Governor’s Academy, known as one of the premier private secondary schools in the country, and the largest land-owner in Newbury.
The lot overlooks and borders the Parker River and Great Marsh, which are local havens for birdwatchers and the ever-changing seasonal landscape at your back door ensure an amazing variety of visitors year round. In the summer the marsh is home to hundreds of nesting red-winged blackbirds, wading herons and egrets. In autumn you'll get to witness the massive winged migration to the south. Winter months typically freeze the river and provide an occasional glimpse of an eagle or seal feasting on fish. Spring is as varied as the creatures that call the marsh and the land their home—cardinals, oriels, grosbeaks, wood ducks, wild turkey, fox and deer. Natural gardens and landscaping surround the home and mahogany decks to the side and rear of the home, provide a perfect spot to enjoy the ever changing landscape of the Parker River. Nature is your neighbor. ..
