This charming Rowley cape has seen so many updates and improvements that it is the epitome of “move-in ready”. And while that alone would be more than enough to drive buyers, there is also great potential to make this a horse property.

“This home sits in a bucolic setting on a beautifully landscaped lot of more than an acre,” says Realtor John McCarthy of Rowley Realty, who lists it for $519,900. “The large two-car detached garage/barn in the back could easily be converted back to a stable to take advantage of all of the local riding trails.”

While the grounds are certainly remarkable, the home’s charming interior is equally matched. On the first floor, find a modernized ¾ bath with ceramic flooring and a newly renovated kitchen featuring stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, a breakfast bar, high-end cabinetry, a tray ceiling, and a wet bar. This space is heightened by recessed lighting, custom ceiling, and a separate dining area.

Entertaining is easy here, thanks to a spacious dining room and a generous living room with hardwood floors and a thoughtful wood stove. A den with pocket doors and custom built-in shelving is the ultimate secluded space for work, while a remodeled sunroom with floor-to-ceiling “EZ-Breeze” windows, ceiling fan, and easy access to a backyard deck is the perfect spot for relaxation.

Sharing the second level are three bedrooms, all with hardwood flooring, including the master. Features of these rooms include ample closets, custom cabinets, and ceiling fans. A shared full bath boasts a Jacuzzi soaking tub.

On a long list of additional amenities, find a full basement with laundry, fresh interior paint, a bluestone walkway, perennial gardens, a new furnace and hot water tank, energy efficient windows and doors, Hardee plank siding, upgraded 200 amp electric, and a 2014 septic.

Convenient to nearby Newburyport and Plum Island, this home is also close to downtown Rowley, commuter rail stop is only a mile away, and all major routes for commuting. For more information, or to schedule a showing, call or email John McCarthy at 978-835-2573, or visit
