Impressive Wenham Colonial has been completely renewed

This stately Colonial home is a tribute to the beautiful things that can happen when the builder’s 50-year-old home is completely upgraded, remodeled and re-imagined for the 21st century.

The 11-room home is situated on a lovely street in one of Wenham’s most desirable neighborhoods — close to the parks, jogging paths, and quaint village shops that make Wenham a picture-perfect New England town. The paved stone pathway and plantings that welcome you to the home bespeak that it’s a place of both Yankee pluck and genteel country living.

“The location of the home is ideal,” said listing agent Peggy McNamara of Keller Williams Realty of Beverly. “It’s a wonderful neighborhood of well-established homes and in this case, the home has been completely redone so it really has that brand-new feeling.”

The first-floor living space comprises the oversized family room, the living room, and the dining room. The living and dining rooms each feature thoughtfully-designed fireplaces to add just the right ambiance whether the plan is for a simple family night at home or a large-scale holiday party. A combination of gleaming, highest quality hardwood floors and plush wall-to-wall carpeting through the house make for easy maintenance and homey luxury.

The kitchen, with its top-grade appliances, endless counter and cabinet space, and marvelous center island, will inspire those who can’t boil water to learn and those who can, to expand their repertoire. The center island’s additional sink is a welcome luxury for the home gourmet and the space is ideal for homework by day and dinner party buffet headquarters by night. The kitchen’s spacious eat-in area overlooks the home’s resort-style heated swimming pool. A bedroom that is currently being used as an office and a powder room complete this level.
