About Annmarie Jonah Realtors

Annmarie Jonah Realtors

Welcome to our real estate website serving Lynn, Massachusetts and the suburbs of Lynnfield, Peabody, Saugus, Salem and Swampscott.  This area of the Commonwealth is especially beautiful with its oceanfront, parks, beaches and woodlands. Lynn, Salem and Peabody also boast vital downtown centers just ten miles north of Boston.

 

Lynn, founded in 1629, is proud of its history, the progress of its industries and the diversity of its people.  The colonial and victorian architecture of its large buildings and the varied neighborhood housing stock makes Lynn a unique gateway to the North Shore.

 

In early cities, settlements grew into winding clusters abutting the rivers, ponds and natural landmarks.  These safe and stable neighborhoods are wonderful places to live.

 

 Close to the ocean, the DIAMOND DISTRICT is where the shoe manufacturers and Lynn’s founders built their mansions.  Today, many of these grand homes have been divided into condominiums but some remain, beautifully maintained for over 200 years.

 

SAGAMORE HILL, once home to the great Pawtucket nation, provides a panoramic view of Broad Sound, Lynn Harbor and the Nahant peninsula.  Where Chief Nanapashemet ruled the Eastern Shore, the shoe factories of the 1800’s have been renovated to provide apartments and condominiums.  Businesses and restaurants are also part of the area.

 

 The HIGHLANDS, also the site of many early great houses, is now mostly multi-family dwellings but the famous High Rock Tower with its beautiful park dominates the neighborhood and provides a magnificent view across the city to the ocean.

 

  LAKESIDE was developed in the late 1800’s around Flax Pond and is still one our most desirable family neighborhoods.  Early Queen Ann colonials with scalloped shingles and front porches, small cottages and two recent new home developments attract young families to the tree lined streets and the pond with its fishing, boating and skating.  

 

In WYOMA, developed in the early 1900’s, there are many old style colonials mixed with large Gambrels and lake homes on the shores of Sluice Pond and Flax Pond. Here again, the water activities provide a great quality of life.  This neighborhood also is adjacent to the beautiful municipal Happy Valley Golf Course and the Lynn Woods Reservation, a 2400 acre city forest.

 

Near Salem, the original FAY ESTATE is now a vibrant family neighborhood of Capes and Ranch homes built after World War II.  Spring Pond, Glenmere Pond are in this area as is the old stone mansion of the Fay family and Georgian mansion of their daughter.. For over one hundred years, there was a floating bridge to this part of Lynn on the road to Salem.  Now there is a new modern Buchanan Bridge that spans Glenmere Pond where the swans float in summer and the kids skate in winter.

 

 

 

In West Lynn, PINE HILL became a favorite home of the General Electric employees.  This beautiful area has views of the city to the Boston skyline.  A mixed housing stock of homes built between 1900 and 1980,this is an quiet enclave even today for the hard working populace of a great city.

 

The BRICKYARD was the destination of the early immigrants who came to work in the shoe factories.  At that time it was a robust, hard scrabble place of triple deckers where a broad mix of ethnic families lived and worked together.  Many local businesses bakers, grocers, tailors, pharmacies, etc. got their start in the BRICKYARD melting pot.  This area was razed in the late 1950’s to make way for larger business  many social service agencies.   Close to Lynn Commons and downtown, some old families remain and  it somehow retains the glamour of its history.

 

VETERANS VILLAGE is a beautiful group of several streets in the Tower Hill area that was build for returning
