Bridge House (circa 1890) is a nature lover’s 3 bedroom, 2 bathroom retreat nestled on 2 acres on a scenic country road in heart of Tewksbury along the Rockaway Creek. Upon entering this light-filled home you step into a large family room with hardwood floors and high ceilings open to the loft above. A stone-front wood-burning stove adds to the cozy feel and sliding doors to the large deck overlooking the Rockaway Creek embrace the sylvan setting. The open, renovated kitchen with breakfast bar and granite counter tops has plentiful cabinet storage and leads to a sunny, formal dining room. A family room, bedroom, full bath & large closets complete this floor. Upstairs also has tons of light and features two additional bedrooms, full bath, loft, and large closets.
