On the Market: A Waterfront Wonder in Winthrop
This five-bedroom manse is impressive on its own, nevermind those stunning views of Boston Harbor.
153 Court Road, Winthrop
Size: 2,612 square feet
Located in a section of Winthrop called “the maze” because of its abundance of winding streets, this turn-of-the-century Queen Anne is quite the gem. With its meticulous craftsmanship, stained glass, pocket doors, and period woodwork, the home is impressive on its own, nevermind its stunning backdrop.
Indeed, the five-bedroom manse is a waterfront property, boasting unrivaled vistas of Boston Harbor and the skyline. A sizable back deck makes room for a grill and a dining set, framing panoramic views of the ocean. The quarter-acre yard packs in the charm thanks to mature trees and a small lawn, while beyond it, a dock with water rights is the perfect jumping off point for a quick boat ride.
“Imagine..,” writes listing agent Brianne Grady, “Just minutes from Boston, you can grab your kayak for a sunset paddle and grill on the deck while drinking in a spectacular sunset and tranquil water views.”
The only downside? Those views are also a front-row seat to the goings-on at Logan. You’ll have to get used to the drone of airplanes landing just across the inlet. Not a bad tradeoff, if you ask us.
