Nestled on a coveted street in our beloved Historic District, 63 Marine St offers equal measures of history and modern day living along with wonderfully repurposed original elements and a healthy dose of whimsy. Built as a smaller house but with grand singular details you expect to find in old mansions and the eclectic character of an artist's cottage - the fusion is magical, welcoming and infinitely usable. A happy home with 3 porches and a generous courtyard invite outdoor living year round.Greeting the sunrise with morning coffee or recapping the day with evening cocktails on the appropriate porch, you'd never know the heart of the city beats just 2 blocks away. Go make merry and then stroll along the waterfront back to your peaceful nest to watch the moon rise over the bay. Read about technical/structural bells and whistles when you can but now let's go inside. 1st floor offers en-suite guest quarters which open to porch and courtyard. Laundry closet is tucked in the hall. 2nd floor presents open living, dining and kitchen - ideal for daily life and entertaining what promises to be a long list of guests. Serious cooks will love the soapstone counters and the spice cabinet concealed behind 19th century hand-carved doors. Kitchen porch overlooks the courtyard and the other presides over Marine St. Flex room stands in as office or 3rd bedroom when both sets of vintage pocket doors are closed. 2nd full bath is at the top of the stairs. 3rd floor is the prize with its panoramic Intracoastal view and breeze! The primary bedroom with 1/2 bath (easily expanded to full) lives up here. Owners have added professional home theatre in the shared space so movie nights are on the menu. Back downstairs, a generous courtyard is the most effortless of back yards with its sheltered al fresco living and dining areas. 1-car garage and driveway give your cars a home but you'll do most of your exploring on foot or bike. Indulge yourself and make the move - we think you'll like it!
