Clamshell Landing: Bring Your Game To Its Squash & Tennis Courts! - Essex, MA - North Shore
Available for rentals year round, Clamshell Landing is perfect for family vacations, family reunions, wedding accommodations, corporate outings or other events. This one-of-a-kind vacation rental home is perfect for sports enthusiasts or nature lovers and is complete with squash & tennis courts, a fitness room, locker room, kayaks, and much more.
Clamshell Landing sits on 22 acres of pristine conservation land and overlooks the green grasses of the Essex salt marsh. A myriad of estuaries of the Essex River Basin flow through it like little glittering lanes in which one can swim or kayak to the beach or out to lunch. The original farm house is still here, but the property was enlarged and completely renovated in 2002. Most of the house has central air conditioning, except in the original part of the house.
The 'new wing' has a custom kitchen with a wall of glass from which you, your guests and family can enjoy the endless views. This is a cook's kitchen which boasts high end appliances, marble counters, and a massive island perfect for meal prep.The kitchen is open to spacious and bright dining and living areas that have plenty of comfy seating.
Off of the living area is what was once the original farm house, and there is another large living room with a fireplace, and a flat screen HDTV, and 3 different sitting areas to accommodate many different activities. A huge deck for outdoor relaxing or entertaining is just off of the kitchen, dining and living area.
The master queen bedroom and full bath are privately situated on the main floor. Upstairs are two bedrooms and another full bath. One of these bedrooms doubles as a 'movie loft' with a video projector with surround sound for hook up to a laptop. Back downstairs and just off the kitchen are a mud room and a full bath with tub and shower. There is also a screened-in dining area with beautiful views of the grounds, marsh and sea beyond.
The new wing has two levels, the upper housing 3 bedrooms - two rooms containing 6 singles altogether, and a queen bedroom with ensuite half bath, as well as a full bath with a glass enclosed shower off the hall. The layout of the house is perfect for multiple families to share since there are two master bedrooms with private baths in separate areas of the house.
The lower level of the house is where the climate-controlled squash court is, complete with a viewing gallery above and a 'locker room' with two showers and double sinks. Also on this level is a pool table room and a fitness room with a treadmill, stationary bike and weight machine.
Outside there is even more entertainment; the tennis court, fire pit, lighted half-basketball court, and kayaks are all available for your use. The property is a 15-minute drive from the white sands of Crane's beach, and closer to the village of Essex famous for its restaurants, fresh seafood and local produce. And if you like antiques, Essex has more fine antique shops than any other locale north of Boston. Boston is less than an hour away, and the towns of Rockport, Gloucester, Ipswich and Manchester are all nearby. This vacation home is one of the best vacation spots on the North Shore -- come and see for yourself!
