Shingle style house on Marblehead’s Unknown Oceanfront
A man came to see 11 Crown Way a while back and commented that he had driven up and down Atlantic Avenue for years and had no idea that there were oceanfront houses at the end of the streets between Preston Beach and Beach Street.
There are a lot of small streets that lead to the water and have 1 or 2 or maybe 3 or 4 houses sitting directly on the ocean at the end. And for the most part these houses sit on the rocky Atlantic coast and are high enough that flooding is not a concern, while many of them face South, have great views of Ram Island and down the coastline, and are well protected from the nor’easters that can impact more exposed areas.
In 2014 there were 29 houses with an Assessed Value of $2 million or more in this area and by this year that number had jumped to 45.This area does indeed contain Marblehead’s Unknown Oceanfront properties.
11 Crown Way, which has breathtaking views all the way down to the South Shore, is a gracious, restored (1998-2006), 1870s oceanfront home. The open floor plan offers an easy flow for entertaining. The house sits on a private beach, high above the Atlantic, in a wonderfully protected location (no flood insurance required.) VIEWS and VIEWS and VIEWS.
The Carriage House is believed to have been a stop on the Underground Railroad, and the property has been featured by the Massachusetts Historical Commission.
Listen to the sound of the ocean, while looking out over the rocks which provide a sanctuary for wildlife.
11 Crown Way is just 13 miles north of Boston’s Logan Airport, while enjoying all the charms and delights of the “Yachting Capital of America”, and “New England’s Best-Kept Seaside Secret.”
