4 State Street – Marblehead, Massachusetts

Nestled on one of the most iconic streets in Marblehead, you can step out the front door of 4 State Street into the center of Old Town. Just a short walk to the harbor, historic landmarks, parks and shops, this highly sought after location can’t be beat.

As you approach the Gambriel-roofed house, your attention will be drawn to its stately exterior, which has been well maintained throughout the owners’ stewardship. The façade of the house, now a Greek Revival, was originally built in 1795 by Benoice Johnson, a cabinet maker, for Sea Captain, John Adams.

A perfect blend of old world charm and modern comforts, this exceptionally updated antique colonial features four bedrooms, three full baths and one half bath. With five fireplaces, you’ll find warmth and character in every room of this 2,254 square foot home. Other period details include wide pine floors and original wood paneling.

The kitchen’s clean lines and fireplaced dining area creates an intimate space for eating in and hosting guests. A wet bar adds the finishing touch for entertaining. 

Upstairs you will be wowed by the impressive master bedroom and en-suite, boasting a dramatic combination of beams, skylights, and lighting.  Throughout the other bedrooms, unique character is abundant — highlights include built-ins and crown molding.

Just outside a lovely Beacon Hill garden and coveted parking space await.

4 State Street is an exclusive listing of Dick McKinley and Matt Dolan – Team Harborside, Sagan Harborside Sotheby’s International Realty.
