While this Marblehead antique has all of the period details one might imagine, it also brings a laundry list of unexpected riches according to Realtor Lori Cressy of the Cressy Team at J Barrett and Company. Located in the heart of the historic district, this significant home has been newly reintroduced to the market for $989,000.
Built 1721, the “Nicholson Broughton House” is beautifully appointed with original wide-plank wooden floors, antique-style shutters, paneled walls, and ornamental moldings and trims. At the same time, it boasts a two-car detached garage with overhead storage, large rooms, ample closets, and a generous walk-out basement with high ceilings – all elements seldom seen in early eighteenth-century architecture.
A myriad of comfortable and welcoming spaces grace the main level, starting with a living room complete with exposed beams, chair rails, and one of the home’s six working fireplaces. A more relaxed family room features built-in cupboards and shelving, while the adjacent dining room is a bit more formal with decorative wainscoting and an over-sized fireplace. Rounding off this floor are the well-applianced kitchen, a convenient butler’s pantry, and a full bath.
Two spacious bedrooms and a cozy family room (or a third bedroom if desired) – all with fireplaces – share the second story with a full bath. Should you require more room, the home’s flexible third level offers another bedroom, a sitting room, and a full bath.
Other notable highlights of this property include a fenced bluestone patio edged by mature shrubbery, a wooden deck with custom bench seating and views of the harbor, a storage shed, an additional off-street parking spot, and a brand new gas heating system.
“This is a very special opportunity to create the home of your dreams while enjoying the very best of Marblehead,” says Cressy. “Along with its versatile floor plan, it has a very unique and special location that puts you within steps to Old Town shops and restaurants, Crocker Park, and the town’s many yacht clubs. This is one of those rare homes that checks all of the boxes.”
An open house is planned for Sunday from noon to 1:30 at 6 Lee Street. For more information, call Lori Cressy at 617-922-3354. Additional photos may be viewed at www.jbarrettrealty.com .
