Salem new construction ready for move-in

While some potential homebuyers may be drawn to older homes for their vintage charm, there is undoubtedly something to be said for new construction. Be it the obvious appeal of exclusive ownership or the commonsense “turnkey” advantage, a brand-new home can make for an easy transition. So, it only stands to reason that Realtor Terryanne St. Pierre of Tache Real Estate believes that this recently built Colonial is one of Salem’s hottest commodities.

“When you buy brand-new, you can simply move in and know that you have many, many years of maintenance-free living ahead of you. Peace of mind like that is priceless. This is a home that can afford just that,” says St. Pierre.

Nicely appointed throughout with customized amenities such as decorative columns and interesting woodworking, this home boasts 2,000 square feet of fluid space.

Well-suited for entertaining, the “side to side” living room with ceiling fans and hardwood floors is quite large. For formal dinners, the dining room is sure to fit the bill with its coffered ceilings, decorative light fixture medallion and eye-catching wainscoting.

Thoughtfully adjacent, the gourmet oak kitchen is amply equipped with recessed lighting, stainless-steel appliances, granite countertops, a center island with convenient pot rack suspended above and French doors to a sizeable deck.

A half-bath and laundry hook-up round off this level.

A generous second floor includes the master bedroom complete with copious closet space, an en suite bath and lovely views of the backyard. Two additional bedrooms with hardwood flooring share a second full bath.

Sited in Salem’s desirable Witchcraft Heights neighborhood, this home, which lists for $369,900, also features a carefree vinyl exterior, insulated windows, central air-conditioning, plentiful parking for four-plus and additional storage in the basement.

“This house offers a nice space for holiday get-togethers. It really was designed to have an ease about it, making it a very comfortable place to be,” says the Realtor. “There are also many extra details that you do not find in most new construction, such as a Home Energy Rating System Certificate and a builder’s home warranty. It is, quite simply, a great house that is ready and waiting for a lucky buyer.”

An open house at 7 Summit St. is planned for Sunday from 11 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Call Terryanne St. Pierre at 978-580-9396 for more information or email her at terrysaintpierre@gmail.com.
