This charming Beverly colonial complete with a quintessential front porch has been artfully and tastefully refurbished throughout. From its re-landscaped yard to its meticulously renewed interior, this is a home that must be seen to be believed, says J Barrett & Company Realtor Joyce Herman, who lists it for $539,000.
“This house was in a state of disrepair when its (current) owners purchased it three years ago,” she says. “In that short amount of time, they virtually tackled everything including putting on a new roof, adding central air conditioning, and installing a new electrical system, furnace, water tank, light fixtures, and a new bathroom in the basement.”
While these “behind the scene” staples are clearly important, one would be remiss not to mention the more “aesthetically pleasing” items found on top of most homebuyers’ wish lists. Step through the front door and into a renovated eat-in kitchen boasting custom cabinets, granite counter tops, stainless steel appliances, and a newly added half bath. While the adjacent living and dining rooms feature freshly painted walls and refinished hardwood floors, these spaces also feature a number of notable early twentieth century appointments such as an original brick fireplace, a built-in china closet, and decorative columns. Three bedrooms with hardwood floors and ample closets, share the second level with a refurbished tiled bath.
For even more space, descend to the completely finished lower level where you’ll find a family room with ceramic flooring, a full laundry room, and a remodeled bath with walk-in shower. There is also a large walk-up attic for the possibility of additional living space should you need it.
This property further offers a four-car driveway and a grassy fenced back yard with pergola and pavered patio. While the home is set on a quiet dead-end street, it is conveniently close to public transportation, major routes, and some of the North Shore’s most prestigious schools.
“Basically, what you have here is a brand new house without that ‘new house’ price tag,” says Herman. “To put it simply, the moment you walk through that door you get the feeling that this would be a happy home in which to live.”
