Elegantly Furnished Antique on Boston's North Shore: Old Town Marblehead

"Sweetheart Cottage" - If you're looking for New England charm close to Boston, consider this bright and welcoming two plus bedroom home in Marblehead, Massachusetts. Built in 1841, the house comes with modern features including central AC and an on-demand, gas-powered hot water heater. The kitchen is equipped with a 5 burner LG gas range, Miele dishwasher, GE microwave, and a dining table that expands to seat 8. Enjoy a dedicated office and a half bath on the first floor between the music room and the sitting room. A full bath connects the two bedrooms "Jack & Jill" style on the second floor. A laundry room and spare room are conveniently located off the master. There is ample closet space throughout the house and a spacious shed in the garden. And there is plenty of parking, a rarity in Old Town Marblehead.

Located in one of the largest predominantly pre-Revolutionary era neighborhoods in the nation, the address is 13 miles north of Logan Airport and less than a 20 minute drive to the Swampscott or Salem train station. Marblehead is 15 miles north of Boston and Cambridge. The home is a quick, picturesque walk to Marblehead's renowned harbor. (Marblehead rivals Newport, Rhode Island, in the sailing world.) Step out to restaurants, the village supermarket, the cinema, banks, and unique local shops. The Me & Thee Coffeehouse, historical re-enactments, the summer arts festival, and Symphony by the Sea are just a few of the cultural events at your doorstep.

On a winter's evening, sit by the fire or play the baby grand in the music room. During the warmer months, enjoy the private deck and a fenced yard set off by magnificent trees and lovely gardens. A quaint shed holds bicycles and more. You'll find safe parking for 4 cars on the premises, wonderful neighbors, and excellent schools, some within walking distance. An enchanting and comfortable place to call home...

We had the pleasure of renting this lovely home 2016-2017. The house is charming and comfortable, the location beautiful and authentic New England, you just can't beat this. Joy was so welcoming and wonderful to work with; she really made us feel at home. We highly recommend this home rental. Mary D. & Steve O. Excellent Mary Catherine Dunn 8/2/2017 9:21:00 AM
Even though we were unable to rent her home, our experience with Joy was an excellent one. We especially appreciated her welcoming rapport and prompt, informative communications - and her home is even more lovely than the photos depict. Highest recommendations. Excellent Pamela Mackay 9/25/2016 7:24:00 AM
Our experience could not have been better. The home was charming, location was the essence of New England, neighbors were lovely, and Joy was wonderful to work with. Very, very pleased. Excellent Chris 9/4/2016 6:23:00 PM
