About the Owners
Prior to the Schnurbush’s building this home in 1948, the land was used to farm their apple orchard. Prior to that, Alma had been raised in the Tapley House, an authentic and maintained antique home (circa 1700) located across the street. Like many old New England farms, the Schnurbush property was etched into the landscape by a century-old rock wall. This land is still dotted with several of the original apple trees. The Schnurbush’s lived and raised their family in this home for 36 years. It was somewhat of a local landmark to the area’s children, as Mrs. Schnurbush - Alma to most - taught piano here from her Living Room. With her children haven moving on and her being on her own, Alma decided that the home was simply too big for her to care for, and so, in July of 1984, Alma sold her home to the Parkers and moved a few miles away to Lynnfield’s popular Centre Village for the Elderly. Even with interest rates at 14.30%, the Parkers knew that Lynnfield was a wise investment, after all, their first home in South Lynnfield was purchased in 1978 for only $37,500.

The Parkers have enjoyed their home for 18 years now and throughout those years, have made constant updates and enhancements. Those updates have always been made to keep the house modern, yet careful attention has been maintained to preserve the home’s original charm and characteristics. In 1989, the Parker’s added a new Family Room addition. The third floor was complete done over shortly thereafter. That room has been used as a bedroom / retreat by the elder daughter, and an office for the past 2 1/2 years. Within the past year, the kitchen and baths have had significant upgrades.

From Kindergarten to graduation from Lynnfield High, Lynnfield’s school system has prepared the Parker’s two daughters very well for higher education. Both have, or will shortly be graduating from the area’s fine colleges. The kids are now grown and are spreading their wings. At the same time, the lure of warmer weather and a longer boating / motorcycle season is pulling strong, and thus, the Parker’s have chosen to relocate to the Del Ray Beach, Florida area. Lynnfield will always be their home. Maybe it will be yours too.


Lynnfield - A Narrative
The Town of Lynnfield is a traditional New England residential community which has an open town meeting form of government, headed by a three-member Board of Selectmen. Its residents enjoy the small town feeling while within a short commute of Boston’s cultural and employment opportunities.

Lynnfield’s school system is very highly regarded, residents note proudly, sending over eighty percent of its graduates to college.

The center of the town is graced by The Common, a small green bordered by historic structures including the Lynnfield Meeting House built in 1714 and the Lynnfield Public Library, which was built just before the Civil War.

The town provides a wide spectrum of recreational facilities with ball fields, tennis, parks and three golf courses.

When it comes to real estate, there are three things that are important when selecting an area. They are: Location, Location and Location. Lynnfield offers these and much more. Lynnfield continues to draw key business and sports figures. The school system is excellent, taxes have been reasonable, water is low cost, the town’s services are good and the town fiercely protects its small town charm and is ideally located. These are but a few reasons why Lynnfield continues to be a wise investment.
