Incredible location, bucolic views and history embrace this once-in-a-generation property on scenic Labor In Vain Road. A proud five bedroom Federal-style colonial and quaint Cape-style cottage occupy 6.8+/- acres abutting conservation land on the banks of Gould's Creek with a private dock.

The main house has been maintained but unspoiled and its original character and charm remain, with high ceilings, natural light and lovely views from every window, the house feels spacious yet intimate. The wrap-around screened-in-porch overlooking the lawn and water is a serene place for contemplations, creativity, weather-watching, bird-watching, and a gathering place for family and friends. The one-bedroom guest cottage is also full of original antique character. The access to nature and recreation is immediate and the location so close to vibrant downtown Ipswich cannot be rivaled.
