With 300 years of history, 80 Front Street is intimately tied to US Independence and allegedly, George Washington himself once walked the same wide pine floors that still exist in the home. In 1770, John Twisdon and his wife purchased this home. Twisdon also owned a fishing schooner by the name of Hawk, which was fitted out for naval service and re-named the USS Warren. The USS Warren was used by General Washington to intercept British supply ships bound for Boston.
Perhaps Washington and Twisdon looked out at Hawk in Marblehead Harbor from one of the many windows that provide the owner unencumbered views of the boats in the harbor...
Built in 1730, this Old Town beauty features every sought after characteristic of a classic New England seaside home: brimming with character & charm, water views from every level, a picturesque outdoor space, and off-street parking. Spread across over 3000 square feet with 5 bedrooms and 2.5 baths, this home has space to accommodate all of modern day living including a garage with EV charger. Meanwhile, period details such as gleaming wide plank floors, arched closet doors, gorgeous wood beams, and beautifully crafted windows that have withstood the test of time add character that only an antique home could.
Formerly used as a multi-family dwelling, 80 Front St also offers the opportunity to host an income-producing unit, an in-law/guest/au pair suite, or create 2 living units.
