About Karen Maguire

I summered in Scituate as a child and have lots of wonderful memories of lazy summer days at the beach. My husband and I moved to MA from New York City in 1985 and spent years looking for property near the beach.

Karen Maguire purchased this house in 2005

Why Karen Maguire chose South Shore Massachusetts

We own the house next door and bought this house because we were worried that someone would tear it down. The house was originally built in 1880 and is one of the oldest properties in Minot. We wanted to preserve the character of the house, so we completely gutted renovated the, but tried to keep the unique features and the original line and character of the house.

What makes this house unique

The neighborhood is a throwback to the 50's--unlocked doors, front porches and everyone knowing everyone. The house has gorgeous water views from the very sunny kitchen, and lots of unique features that are hard to describe. One room - the 'tower room'- took the master carpenter 6 weeks to complete the finish work. Everyone falls in love with that room.

Wonderful House

  • 5 of 5

My two young daughters had a wonderful week-long stay at this house in Minot! Only a half block from the ocean, we enjoyed after dinner walks and beautiful sunsets on the beach. The house had everything we needed: updated, open kitchen, nice bathrooms, a full basement for the kids to play games and watch TV. The master bedroom includes a deck and luxurious en suite bath. This house is modern, bright, and well-maintained. Plus you can't beat the picturesque Minot neighborhood, with it's tree lined streets and charming homes. Steve and Kathy were great to work with - very helpful and available. I highly recommend this house!

Historic downtown Hingham has restaurants, shops and some spectacular historic homes; downtown Scituate has a cinema, spa, shopping, casual and fine dining and a totally pictuesque harbor.
