Property Description:

Tucked away at the end of Nabby’s Point Rd is a one-of-a-kind, 2.2+ acre waterfront retreat affectionately known as "Toad Hall" by the family who has enjoyed it for nearly 50 years. The property includes 472’ of frontage on the Ipswich River with a Ch. 91-licensed PRIVATE DOCK. The 3 bedroom, 3 bath house with detached oversized car garage is well-sited above the water’s edge taking advantage of the stunning views over the river to a largely undeveloped opposing shoreline and marsh. The original house was built c. 1921 for well-known North Shore artist Carl Nordstrom, it was rebuilt in the 1980’s but many of Nordstrom’s artistic touches remain in the garden today contributing to the charm and character of this special place. The expansive yard includes mature trees, forest paths, gardens, lawn & multiple points of water access for kayaks, canoes, and swimming - tidal creeks, Crane Beach, Plum Island and the open ocean are just minutes away by boat. All of this so close to downtown!
