Presented by Mimi Pruett of J Barrett & Company, this stately circa-1800 Colonial home has been seemingly designed for the homebuyer with a discriminating palate. Sited on nearly an acre-and-a-half and just minutes away from West Beach, the commuter rail and charming downtown Beverly Farms, this arresting manse affords the perfect combination of proper and casual spaces. Complete with a beautiful in-ground heated swimming pool and grounds to match, it lists for $1,695,000.
“Period details, hardwood floors, multiple fireplaces, a floor-to-ceiling bay window and French doors all add to the ambiance of this special property. It is filled with all of the wonderful things you might expect from a classic 19th-century home,” says Pruett.
The gracious entryway makes a striking first impression with an arched doorway, built-in china closet and commanding spiral staircase. While the living and dining rooms are innately formal with crown moldings, wainscoting, decorative columns and coffered ceilings, this main level also offers less-structured rooms, including a thoughtful mudroom, a library, and a step-down family room featuring exposed beams and a stone fireplace.
The updated kitchen with wide-pine flooring, recessed lighting and pantry is well-appointed with stainless-steel appliances and ample white cabinetry. Just steps away, a lovely sunroom with wet bar overlooks the breathtaking yard.
A large master suite on the second floor is enhanced by two baths and a versatile space ideal for a home office or exercise room. Sharing this level are three more bedrooms and a full bath. One story above, find two additional rooms and another full bath. Outside, a three-car detached garage completes this exceptional property.
“This home and its gorgeous surroundings make for the perfect spot for nice family gatherings. The exquisite landscaping encompasses not only the lovely pool and outdoor shower, but charming patios, rhododendrons and azaleas, flowering trees and a large flat, grassy area for play,” says Pruett. “The grounds, as well as the pool, have been professionally and expertly shrubbed so that you have the utmost in privacy. It’s just a wonderful home.”
