Description

This unique West End property is brimming with centuries of lore. When built, the harbor and the beach were the main thoroughfare, and Commercial Street did not exist. This explains why the front of the house faces the water. Three chimneys converge just inside the front door to create an old fashioned ''Snug Harbor,'' where sailors and fishermen would stop in to warm up. Thought to have been built in the mid-1700s, the property is rumored to have been a safe house on the underground railroad. Amongst the owners through the years, a sea captain's family in the 1800s, a well-known artist in the 1900s and a string of successful restauranteurs beginning in the late 1970s, most recently the popular and acclaimed Martin House where Norman Mailer was a frequent patron. The conversion back to a residence began in 2010, with meticulous care taken to restore and preserve the rich history while updating all of the inner workings. Become part of this property's legacy as its next steward.
