On the Market: A Modern Harborside Home in Old Town Marblehead
Take your pick between watching a movie on the retractable smart TV or gazing at the water through the windows.
24 Lee St. #C4, Marblehead
Size: 612 square feet
Care to live in a breezy harborfront home in a historical district on the North Shore? Then schedule a showing for this sweet one-bedroom condo in Marblehead’s Old Town neighborhood. Over the past 10-plus years, the past and present owners have updated the one-bedroom pad with a slew of renovations, including a remodeled kitchen and all-marble bathroom, fresh coats of paint, and the installation of bamboo floors. One of the cleverest projects is less obvious: A retractable smart TV, already hooked up with a top-notch sound system, lowers from the ceiling above the dining room table at the push of a button.
The sailboat-filled views of the water through the living room windows put the proximity of the ocean into perspective, and if you sidle over to the roofed deck, you can improve the lookout even more. When wintry weather rolls in, convert the 72-square-foot terrace into a sheltered den by firing up the wood-burning fireplace inside and rolling down the plastic screen that seals off the water-facing wall.
