              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 2007

              About the owner: Your hosts are a family of four and two pups. We moved 'back east' from a tiny ski village in the Sierra Nevada mountains. After living at 7,100 feet for three years, we thought we'd enjoy being at sea level in a seaside town. What a good decision! We live in the most amazing 'castle,' that was built around 1900 as a carriage house serving the nearby Clifton Train Depot. Although the horses, carriages, and train are long gone, you will be charmed by the beauty and adventure of this old turreted building. Just as we do. We are delighted to welcome people to Marblehead and enjoy our beautiful gardens, yard and seaside community.

              Why the Owner Chose Marblehead:
              By the sea, by the sea, by the beautiful sea! Loads of conservation land. Beaches. Great green parks. History. Arts and culture. Family community. Good schools.

              The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
              Situated less than ½ mile from Preston Beach, 1 ½ miles from Devereux Beach, 2 miles from historic old town Marblehead, and 15 miles from Logan Airport and Boston—convenient for both vacation and business travelers. Marblehead has historic homes, art galleries, old winding roads, a lighthouse and so much more. Nearby Salem is ripe with witches, pirates, House of the Seven Gables, and the incredible Peabody Essex Museum.
