Second Period (circa 1743) core with early east & west additions includes a "Beverly jog," legacy fireplace hearths, a brick terrace, 3-4 bedrooms, 3 baths, period woodwork, spacious dining/family area, library, at-home office (swing 4th bedroom), 2-room primary suite w/ substantial walk-in closet, playroom, extraordinary laundry/mud room & a private screen porch. 3 staircases. The East End arose as an area for those employed in the maritime industry & 38 East St. still reflects the charm of this enclave. With its select views of the Ipswich River & its PROXIMITY TO THE IPSWICH VILLAGE, this home is embedded in the town & its history!
