Relish the views from this Beverly oceanfront Colonial

When location is a priority and only the best will do, finding the perfect property is often a monumental task, particularly here on the North Shore. Perhaps, that is why this brand-new offering is so exceptional, for it affords incomparable views, its own beach and, according to Realtor Peter Dorsey of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, a judicious price tag, considering its oceanfront setting.

“This is a phenomenal opportunity for an affordable piece of seaside real estate. In my many years of experience, I’ve not seen anything on the water as intriguing for under $1 million. It is practically unheard of around here,” Dorsey said.

Hidden from the street and sited on high ground, the house overlooks Mackerel Cove and the outer section of Beverly Harbor. Whether enjoyed from the oversized detached deck, the kidney-shaped swimming pool or from any of its nine rooms, this property boasts a gorgeous backdrop where Mackerel Cove and the Salem and Marblehead coastlines are in view.

On the interior, the strategic use of large windows, skylights and sliders helps to “bring the outside in,” particularly in the sunroom, where the walls of glass overlook the sea below. Featuring an easy flow, the main level also includes a fully applianced kitchen with generous silestone counters, a formal dining room and a very large family room, complete with cathedral beamed ceiling, multihued slate flooring and an eye-catching brick wall and fireplace. Should you be seeking solitude or a private work space, a roomy den rounds off this floor.

Room for guests, as you will inevitably have them, should not be a problem, for upstairs there are five bedrooms including the master suite where picture windows afford panoramic views of the ocean. In need of a private office or artist’s studio perhaps? Fear not, for above the two-car garage, there is a generous space in which to work, accessible from the house and additionally accessible from the garage by a separate staircase.
