Custom three-bedroom offers contemporary styling, flexibility in Marblehead

Set way back from the street on a quiet cul-de-sac of similar homes, this Marblehead contemporary is for sale for the first time by its original owner. Lovingly cared for and impeccably maintained, this charming home boasts a striking curb appeal, wide-open interior spaces and a sleek fashionable design.

“The nice thing about this house is that it offers a lot of choices, thanks to a very versatile floor plan,” says Mike Cannuscio of Harborside Realty. “The rooms are large enough so that they can really be used in different ways. Also, there is over 1,000 square feet of space in the basement that is able to be finished, opening up a world of possibilities for the next owner.”

While this home is noticeably roomy, architectural features such as vaulted ceilings, skylights and oversized windows serve to enrich the fluidity of this house. A tiled foyer leads the way to a family room where floor-to-ceiling windows seem to let the outside in by streaming in abundant natural light. For more formal gatherings, there is the living room, so spacious that it currently accommodates a home office at one end. This room is enhanced by a beamed cathedral ceiling and a stone-faced wood-burning fireplace.

For options in dining, the list is long. In the kitchen, where the cabinet space is plentiful, a center island easily accommodates seating for two, while a separate area provides more than enough room for a large table. For more structured meals, find the formal dining room complete with hardwood flooring and French doors to the large composite deck where al fresco dining is made easy, thanks to a natural gas line ready for a barbecue grill. Rounding off this level are a recently renovated full bath and a convenient laundry.
