Photograph Castle Hill

Castle Hill

Beautiful mansion with over 160 Acres to explore.

Castle Hill refers to either a 165-acre drumlin surrounded by sea and salt marsh or to the mansion that sits on the hill. Both are part of the 2,100-acre Crane Estate located on Argilla Road in Ipswich, Massachusetts.

Take a walk through the public garden or down to the beach. Plenty of beautiful photo opportunities to be had here.

Super Awesome Walking Spot

Awesome views of the ocean. A good afternoon stroll

Unique And Scenic

Castle Hill is a really scenic area with cool outdoor architecture and nice views to the ocean and Plum Island. The path to beach access is nice. There are often deer wandering around in winter/fall/spring.
