Property Description for 18 Chestnut St, Salem, MA 01970

Rare opportunity to own this magnificent piece of history. This Federal style home is located in Salem's McIntire Historic District.

Around 1846 Nathaniel Hawthorne lived there with his family while working at the Salem Custom House shortly before he wrote "The Scarlet Letter". The property has retained its original architectural character and features 8 fireplaces, original wood floors, high ceilings and three levels of living space. This diamond in the rough has potential to be brought back to its original splendor. Courtyard space with additional 1 car parking. This property will be shown by appointment only.
