Marblehead is a world-famous yachting capital as well as a quaint historic New England village. The home is walkable to everything important in Marblehead and very close to beaches, a pond (fishing allowed) and restaurants/bars. Marblehead has a vibrant arts scene and many local art museums, galleries, and art cooperatives. Many shopping opportunities are a short walk or drive away. The summer arts programs (including classes) are well known, featuring a 4-day-long "Marblehead Festival of the Arts", over the July 4 weekend, with art shows, performances at Crocker Park (free), and street performers.
Year Purchased: 1980
About the owner: We raised our twin children (boy and girl - now 26!) in this home and they spent many happy hours at the beaches and pond nearby. We added on a huge family room, kitchen eating area and back deck in anticipation of our growing family and we spent most of their time there enjoying views on three sides! I am a (near) retired energy conservation engineer working for a large company but I am now travelling a lot (business and pleasure) so renting my home out during the summer is perfect for us (although we hate missing the best part of living in Marblehead - the summer activities!). I moved here in 1977 straight after graduating my engineering program at University of Illinois (Champaign/Urbana campus), since I fell in love with Marblehead at first sight! I have never tired of seeing and smelling the ocean next door and always feel that "Ahhhh!" moment when I drive past Grace Oliver Beach on the way to the driveway after a long hard day at work.
Why the Owner Chose Marblehead, MA, USA:
The neighborhood is filled with young children and everyone is very friendly. We are all professionals in the neighborhood and we live here because while the home is near the central Historic District, we all love the open areas and countryside features of the neighborhood. It is a very quiet neighborhood and everyone looks out for each other. That's why I always feel safe and welcome here in this little gem of a neighborhood. You will too!
The Unique Benefits at this House:
This house always draws a "Wow!" when people first see it. It's a central-entrance Colonial built in 1875, but beautifully maintained and retaining all the original architectural features that made it special in 1875: exterior Greek Revival details, shutters (real ones) that still work, interior mouldings, and many built-ins that make living here both beautiful and convenient. We added a huge family room that adjoins the conveniently arranged kitchen and allows everyone to join together in activities. An outdoor deck is right off the family room and has couches, chairs and tables for outdoor relaxing and eating. The best feature, however, is the location - walkable to everything great about Marblehead and on the border of the Historic District. There are so many unique hidden walkways and stairs in Marblehead that you will undoubtedly spend many hours exploring the neighborhood and each time you will find something interesting you missed the last time!
