History & Style
The R. Sanderson Cottage 1871 - Salem Deeds - 4/23/1898 - Book 1408 | Page 415
From The Massachusetts Historical Commission - Asbury Grove Historic District
The Italianate style houses follow the basic cottage form but are typically ornamented with bracketed door hoods, prominent window hoods, and cornice brackets. Other features commonly found on these cottages are bay windows, decorative verge boards, pedimented window hoods, and oculi or elliptical windows.
Well-preserved examples of the Italianate cottages are those at 11 Mudge Avenue (1871), 39 Mudge Avenue (1893), 9 Central Avenue (1873), and 12 Merrill Avenue (1872).
Those at 7 Mount Zion Avenue (1873), 29 Central Avenue (1899), and 8 McClintock Avenue (1893) also retain major elements of their original design.
Two notable examples of the Italianate cottage are 16 Clark Avenue (1872) and 9 Thompson Avenue (1871).
The former features a two-story tower, while the latter , The Wee 'Ouse, has a prominent bay window at the second floor.
It is COVID time... So we Zoom
Well its is 2020 so everything is via Zoom or Google Meet these days.
I had the pleasure to "meet" a few people from Asbury Grove and learn a bit more during my Admissions interview.
Yes. To buy a property in The Grove there is an admissions panel. So if you can't pass a CORI there is no need to try to follow in my foot steps. If you want to know more about the process you can find out here.
Anyone wishing to purchase or rent for more than two weeks needs to apply and be approved by our admissions committee. We are looking for people of faith, active in their local church community, who will not only be blessed by our community, but will be a blessing to others.
Don't Worry... I was approved.

In October of 2020 I took a walk with a good friend and Asbury Grove owner.
I had briefly seen an adorable "Fairy House" online and was interested to learn more about "The Grove" and the properties for sale.
