On the Market: A Stately Brick Home in Salem
21 Chestnut Street, Salem
Size: 4,599 square feet
If you’ve always dreamed of owning a brick beauty on Beacon Hill but foresee some trouble scrapping together the cash, this home in Salem’s McIntire Historic District is easily the next best thing. The corner residence boasts a whopping 4,599 square feet, and with a price tag of almost $1.3 million, it’s relatively affordable at $282 per square foot.
The stately abode, called the Pickering Dodge Stone House, features four floors, nine fireplaces, and its own elevator. Built in 1814, the home entertained President Andrew Jackson in 1833. Its soaring ceilings and crown moldings transport you back to that era, and the grand, curving staircase seals the time-honored deal.
