Beyond the Empty Nest

Tucked in a quiet Marblehead neighborhood, this quintessential Cape style home is now an updated residence for an empty nest couple with a bevy of frequently visiting grandchildren. The client has happily traded the luxury of “living in a big house” for the pleasure of easy maintenance in a jewel box of a small house.
