6 Jersey Lane, Manchester-by-the-Sea, Massachusetts, United States

An incredible property steeped in history dating back to the turn of the last century recently dropped in price to $2,825,000. The 8,496 square foot summer home sits on 3.19 acres and had originally come on the market for $3,550,000 before being reduced to $3,295,000 earlier this year. It’s known as Apple Trees and it is one of Manchester-by-the-Sea’s most classic and iconic properties offered for sale. It was built in c.1896 by Morrison and Rackley for Girard Bement. The property changed hands in 1903 when Stephen van Rensselaer Crosby purchased it for his family. Manchester Historical Museum notes that Mrs. Crosby loved flowers and gardens. Greenhouses were added and the Apple Trees estate soon became known for its beautiful gardens which were designed by William Ernestus Bowditch. The property remained in the Crosby family until their deaths in the 1950s. Today, the meticulously maintained 7 bedroom, 7 bathroom home has had many recent updates including a new heating system and fully renovated two bedroom, legal apartment with separate entrance. The main house is bright, warm and inviting with light-filled open spaces and nearly irreplaceable architectural detail. This prominent residence is conveniently located within walking distance to Tuck’s Point, the Manchester Yacht Club, the village, Landmark School and Brookwood School. A separate carriage house is also potentially available. It’s on the market for $2,825,000 with LandVest
