Rare opportunity for new construction in Marblehead

If you have been shopping for new construction in Marblehead, you’ve undoubtedly found your quest to be a challenging one. Although such homes are rare in this desirable seacoast town, Dick McKinley of Harborside Sotheby’s International Realty is currently marketing not one, but three, offerings. With one home completed, the foundation of another one just being started and the third close behind, the buyer who acts quickly could be nestled in for the spring and summer.

Spanning more than 3,300 square feet, the first home boasts five bedrooms, two full- and two half-baths and a combination of formal and leisurely rooms. Beautiful finishing touches such as hardwood flooring, crown molding, a gas fireplace and exceptional attention to detail help to make this home very special, says the Realtor.

The main level is to feature what McKinley describes as an “aspirational” kitchen with high-end stainless-steel appliances, gleaming granite counters and a separate casual dining area. Thoughtfully adjacent is a sprawling family room with fireplace and sliders to a covered deck. Ideal for entertaining, the living and dining rooms with detailed trims are elegant yet inviting.

Upstairs, find spacious bedrooms, including a master suite featuring a large sitting area/office, a walk-in and two additional closets and an en suite bath with double vanities, soaking tub and separate “walk-in, custom tiled shower.” The remaining bedrooms share both a full and a half-bath. Bearing in mind that home buyers have varied needs, McKinley points out that the fifth bedroom might alternately serve well as a second-floor family room.

Rounding off this fabulous home is an oversized two-car garage, a generous attic for storage and a spacious basement that can be finished upon request. Aside from the obvious aesthetics that make this home so appealing, it is important to note that only the most current and energy-efficient techniques have been used in the building of this home.
