This week there were multimillion-dollar sales in Greater Boston — and all of them have a water view.

Not only do they boast views, but each of these homes — located in Ipswich, Marblehead, and Gloucester — are directly on the water.

The biggest sale of the three was for $7,700,000, but a fourth should not be overlooked; a new Back Bay property sold for $3,900,000.
