Additional Location Information

Located in sight of the Memorial Bell Tower at Phillips Academy -- the ground on which colonial troops mustered prior to engagement in the American Revolutionary War -- the property is named after the B-24 Liberator heavy bomber in which its original resident earned the Distinguished Flying Cross prior to returning home from Europe and building the home in 1947.

The property is well-located near two interstate highways that provide easy access to every charm offered by the New England region. New Hampshire is minutes away, with choice spots in Maine, Vermont, Western Mass, Cape Cod, Rhode Island and Connecticut largely accessible in less than two hours.

Additionally, the Boston-bound train station is only two miles away, while the Boston-bound bus stop is in walking distance (1/3 mile). The drive to Downtown Boston runs between 25-90 minutes.

Phillips Andover Academy's nationally respected Addison Gallery of American Art and The Robert S. Peabody Museum of Archaeology are easily accessible. Also, the Academy's 65 acre Cochran Wildlife Sanctuary offers several miles of gently rolling trails through woodlands with beautiful ponds for hiking and X-country skiing.

The property is a large New England Ranch House, characterized by all of the rooms being on a single level. This makes it perfect for families traveling with elderly relatives -- for example, to visit their child & grandchild attending Phillips Academy (please see www.pspaandover.org), Brooks School, Pike School or Merrimack College -- and reduces risk should the elder generation prefer to rest at home while the younger family members take an aggressive approach to pursuing day trips to tour venues throughout New England.
