Homeowner embroiled in lawsuit puts property up for sale


Saying he was fed up co-existing with town officials, the owner of a 1750s-era house on Main Street has put the home and the 6.8 acres it sits on up for sale and is encouraging developers to build affordable housing there.

“The town doesn’t want me here anymore,” Michael Kovalchuk said Tuesday morning.

Kovalchuk’s words come as he fends off a lawsuit from the town accusing him of erecting a fence along 238 Main St. without permission. The fence, according to a complaint filed July 11 in Lawrence Superior Court, blocks the public’s view of the historic 18th century house.
