Although one might think that a home such as this would be more commonly found along the coast of Maine, this gorgeous antique Colonial is right here in Amesbury. Sitting just at the bend of the Merrimack River, “Point Shore” affords never-ending vistas of the water and all of the beautiful backdrop that surrounds it. While its roots date back to 1847, the home has been artfully restored to feature every conceivable modern-day convenience. This unique offering, listed for $2,095,000, is presented by Dolores Person of William Raveis Real Estate.
“The exterior landscapes are equally matched by a reimagined interior space that artfully blends antique and state-of-the-art design,” says Person. “Breathtaking views are interrupted only by soaring birds and the low, deep chugging of a power boat or the flapping of an unfurled sail.”
Step through the front door to a beautiful main level enhanced by wide-pine floors, multiple sets of French doors and a bright white pallet. Formal spaces include the living room with a fireplace and custom built-ins, and a dining room with raised paneling, a wall of windows and pendant lighting. Highlighting this level is the gorgeous gourmet kitchen. Wide-open to the family room, this space is enclosed by floor-to-ceiling windows and features generous white cabinetry with granite countertops, a large dining bar with prep sink, recessed lighting and a dramatic coffered ceiling.
On the second floor, find four bedrooms including a sumptuous master suite with a private deck and spa-like bath. A fifth bedroom with plush wall-to-wall carpeting and a three-quarter bath makes up the third floor. Rounding off this lovely home is a first-floor home office and a carpeted playroom on the lower level.
The comfort of this home may tempt you to stay inside, but should you be an outdoor enthusiast, you will undoubtedly feel otherwise. Included on this waterside property is a private dock and a boathouse fully equipped with a half bath and kitchenette.
“This home and all of its spaces have been so thoughtfully designed to soothe the senses that it’s almost sinful,” says Person. “This is a very special home and a rare opportunity.”
