This was a lovely family that wanted to know more about relocating to the Boston area. We provided local information about the North Shore of Boston. With young children, we wanted to make them feel at home so we had toysb by the youngsters. They were a delightful family and left our house immaculate.

Peter and Penny Blaisdell have been Marblehead residence for over 40 years. Peter is a native Marbleheader and Penny grew up on Long Island sound. We have two grown children and after some great careers have decided to enjoy our sailboat and explore Maine when we rent our house during the summer and when we travel south during the winter.
We decided to purchase the house even before we saw the inside. The location is very special and it is very rare that houses in our neighborhood ever come on the market. All you have to do is walk down our lane and you feel you are on the coast of Maine. At low tide you can walk to Brown's Island which is an uninhabited island owned by the Trustees of Reservation.Our locations is truly priceless!
We have a beautifully restored antique that we understand dates back to the 1700s with two working fireplaces and charm throughout. Our house is filled with lovely antiques and is warm and cozy. We have a lovely garden out back that provides water views and even has an outdoor shower with nice hot water.
Located in the oldest section of Marblehead, this neighborhood is a one minute walk to beach and Brown's Island. We believe the date of the house dates back to the late 1700's as the construction is post and beam. You can walk over to Brown's Island at low tide and the area is great for kayaking, wind surfing and board paddleing. The water is warm, clean and reminds you of being in Maine (except the water is warmer). Our garden provides lovely views of the water and has great breezes even during the hottest of days.
