One day after being homesick for the ocean for years, I went to Marblehead having never seen it before, and looked at several gross houses and figured ok, no house.. The person who was showing me around took me to the beach and said: 'This is why I love Marblehead.' I saw the small beach,the cove, the islands, and burst into tears. It looked just like our growing up home. It was almost the exact same view. There was no house for sale there, but oddly fate intervened, and this house is the one I saw as I turned around on that beach, my heart turning over, as I saw its beautiful self tucked into the cliff.

Why VickyKass chose Marblehead
This is one of the most beautiful ocean spots in the world. If you love ocean than this may be the home for you. All but 2 rooms see ocean. It is everywhere. When the tide is high all you see is water. Feels like being on a boat, with more protection, and no drawbacks.
It is secluded, and yet only a few minutes into town.
What makes this cottage unique
This house enfolds people in its heart.
