The Richard Manning House
10 Herbert St
The Richard Manning House stands out as one of the best examples of a Salem condo housed in a historic home. Selling for under $150,000 this condo exemplifies the best of the Salem living experience. It is pet-friendly and convenient to local shopping, dining and other activities. This building dates back to 1713 and was Nathaniel Hawthorne's home for 30 years. The condo features a one bedroom, one bath design that is compact and comfortable. The three rooms that make up the condo, offer some exciting amenities comparable to those found in bigger communities.
Maple flooring and crown moulding give the condo a nice touch. The kitchen features industrial-style lighting, stainless steel appliances, maple cabinets and granite countertops. You'll enjoy the bathroom's design, too, with a shower featuring butterfly glass and stone flooring. Residents have a private storage area, as well as access to basement laundry facilities.
The landscaping is well-tended to, and you'll enjoy looking at the grounds from your protected porch. This protected porch is a great way to enjoy some time outdoors even in less perfect weather. You'll also enjoy the shared grilling station and patio area during the summer months.
One of the biggest advantages that this condo offers, is its location. It is between Salem Common and Pickering Wharf, two of the most popular spots in Salem. Eat out at some of the best restaurants around, go shopping and visit the city's exciting museums. You'll also enjoy the easy access to public transportation, too. The train stop for Boston and other communities on the MBTA line isn't far away. You'll also have a short distance to travel to the ferry that goes to Boston. Commuters and those who prefer public transportation whenever possible will enjoy these options. If you want to drive to see some of the nearby sights, 114 and 1A are convenient routes.
