About Eileen O'Brien
My name is Maura Phelan. My family owns the Brick Path property which includes a lovely third floor furnished apartment. My grandfather (pictured with his winning horse at Suffolk Downs racetrack) was a maverick businessman who loved this building. He converted it to apartments that were managed by my father, and now me. I grew up in town and moved back from NYC when I had a family as Marblehead is a great place to raise kids (good schools, close proximity to Boston).
Eileen O'Brien purchased this Apartment in 1950
Why Eileen O'Brien chose Marblehead
This beautiful and historic building has been in my family for over 70 years. It was built in 1727 by a prosperous merchant named Thomas Robie, who was also a British loyalist. The house is 3 stories and has 12 rooms, every one having a large fireplace. Local lore suggests that there was a secret underground passage from the Brick Path that lead to a house down the street. From there the owners of the property could escape to the harbor and get aboard a vessel if needed. Robie and his wife did, in fact, get run out of town by revolutionary locals who did not appreciate his exorbitant fees for gunpowder.
What makes this Apartment unique
In later years, the house became the residence of Major Joseph W. Green, who for years was one of the most enterprising merchants in town. In 1810, the front room in the house was used as a school room and later as a gift shop. The building is ideally located in the heart of Marblehead's historic district. From the Brick Path, it is an easy walk to local boutiques, coffee shops, great restaurants, grocery stores and more.

This apartment was convenient to Boston and had several good restaurants nearby that were within walking distance. Very nice apartment and historical! Our family loved this place and would definitely stay here again!
Perfect 2 bedroom. Very Marblehead. Clean and comfortable.
Amazing gem in Marblehead
Our party of 6 (4 adults and 2 children) stayed here for a family wedding and had an amazing time. The property is charming, and right in the center of Marblehead, where everything was within walking distance - food, beer, muffins, toy store - you name it. Eileen was great to work with and was attentive to all of our needs and requests. Definitely a place we would recommend.
Great location, clean, easy. Would definitely stay again!
We had a wonderful time. I highly recommend this location.
