BEAUTIFULLY APPOINTED HOME IN OLD TOWN

Marblehead House Rental Photos and Description

House, 3 Bedrooms + Den, 2 Baths, (Sleeps 6)

A Residential Home in Old Town:

As you step onto a mahogany front porch with two large benches and overflowing window boxes, you open a walnut wood front door into a spacious and very inviting open floor plan. The dining room is to your left with a beautiful baby grand piano in the front window.

The marble pedestal table invites guests to seat on comfy upholstered chairs and surround themselves with beautifully appointed furniture. The ceiling fixture is a Gaelic silver chandelier.

Your eyes are then drawn to the living room with its tranquil pallet of turquoise, white and tan. The ceiling is painted a very soft sky blue. There is a flat screen 36' TV with HD and a DVD player; a ceiling fan; a wood burning fireplace.

Look beyond to a cheerful and bright kitchen with all amenities.

The color scheme is eggnog and white cabinets. The bead board trimmed island has set-in light blue/white ceramic tile. There is a sky blue Kohler double ceramic sink, a ceiling fan and a bay window - what more could you ask for. Seating for two at extended kitchen counter or in dining room or on deck.

To the left of the kitchen is a full bath and bedroom separated by a pocket door, which allows privacy for the guests. Bathroom has a Kohler white ceramic tub with shower and a single sink vanity called Martha's Vineyard by the manufacturer. The ceramic tile surrounding the tub is in a subway design. The room has white bead board trim 3/4's up the wall and a ceramic floor in the design of a bleached wooden deck. The bathroom is separate from the bedroom.

The attached bedroom has a trundle bed that converts into two twin beds or a king size bed. There is ample closet space. The bedroom also has a ceiling fan.

Beyond the kitchen is a mudroom with coat closets and whimsical primary colored wallpaper of checks/stripes. There is also a window seat.

This room leads out onto a large mahogany deck, which also has a staircase leading down to a large backyard. There is a safety gate at the top of stairs. Seating on the deck with window boxes and white patio furniture makes you feel as though you are in a space all of your own. The deck has seating for twelve. A canvas gazebo covers part of deck and has curtains that can drawn if it rains. It is appointed with an indoor/outdoor carpet, lighting and tables for hors d'oeuvres and seating. Looking beyond the deck, you can appreciate the lovely quiet setting, the shady trees, the old New England stone walls and the gardens. A Weber BBQ propane grill is provided with utensils.

The second floor has a mahogany balcony at the top of the stairs. First upstairs room is used as a den. It has a computer table and a trundle bed with two twins. Second bedroom can be provided with one/ two Pack'nPlays. It has a Graco open top swing, a Kids' II infant seat and a child's doll bed. The room has white wicker furniture and a ceiling fan.

Bathroom is separate from master bedroom. It has a single sink vanity called Nantucket by the manufacturer. There is a large ceramic walk in shower with handicap arm bars. The room follows the same decorating theme as the downstairs bathroom with bead board and ceramic floor tile. Across from the bath is a standard size washer and dryer.

The master bedroom is large. It has a queen size bed with a feather bed topper. There is a comfortable wing chair and a 32' flat screen TV with DVD player; plenty of drawer and closet space.

Footnotes:

Upon purchase, the home was completely gutted and redesigned with architectural plans. Square footage is approximately 1700.

Floors on the first level are all oak hard wood. The second level is carpeted.

The backyard is fully enclosed and safe for children and a dog.

For Boston Sightseeing: You can hop onto the commuter train in Swampscott (neighboring town). It is only a 12-15 minute ride to the depot and a 20 minute ride into Boston's North Station. There is also local bus transportation into Boston at the top of the street.

Ten minute walk to downtown for sightseeing Marblehead Harbor, touring the quaint colonial streets, shopping and dining. There is a medium size well appointed grocery store with a nice selection of wine.

Only a ten minute ride to our lovely beaches.

I moved to Marblehead to be closer to family; and the ocean, of course.

My roots are in New England.

Lovely Retreat in Marblehead

  • 5 of 5
What a beautiful home in old town Marblehead! It is walking distance to shopping and great restaurants. There was plenty of room for us all to spread out, and we loved the fully equipped kitchen and outdoor Weber grill...... We enjoyed breakfast on the deck, above the large landscaped backyard. This location was great for us, to visit our son and daughter-in-law a short drive away in Boston. Everything about this home made us smile.

Lovely time in perfect Marblehead setting. It became a wonderful respite after husband's participation in 2013 Boston Marathon. He was seven minutes ahead of bombs and we were grateful to find rest in quiet Marblehead. Description was accurate. Photos were spot on. Very clean and immaculate. Owner most helpful with all our questions. would totally recommend this property. Go to Maddies! And The Landing - ask for Felix to wait on you!

Beautiful Home!

  • 5 of 5
Our first time visiting Marblehead and this house was perfect! We had a family wedding in September and this house was absolutely perfect. It was in walking distance to the Church and the Inn where the Bride and family were staying. It's immaculate, beautifully decorated and very comfortable. We had such nice weather and really enjoyed the deck and yard and BBQ. The owner is really a pleasant person. Such a great home!! I would highly recommend it. I look forward to renting this place again! Thanks again Linnea! MaryAnn

A beautiful get-a-way that feels like home

  • 5 of 5
My family and I spent a week in this cozy and beautifully decorated home. Everything we needed was available to us and when it was time to enjoy the outside, there was a gorgeous back yard for us to relax in. Just minutes from historic Marblehead, we took a short walk each day and enjoyed shopping, restaurants, ice cream and the water views. At the end of a long day, all three of my young children were cozy in their beds and we all looked forward to another day. My only complaint it's that we had to leave when our vacation was over. I highly recommend this home and we look forward to visiting again one day!

A lovely home

  • 5 of 5
We stayed in this beautiful home for two weeks and it was wonderful. It was clean, comfortable, wonderfully decorated and and the kitchen is fully stocked with dishes, pots and pans, waffle iron, etc. The back yard is charming and the deck is a great retreat at the end of a busy day. The house is conveniently located within walking distance to the old town, the harbor and 5 corners. We loved it and have already requested two weeks for next summer!
