While its roots date back to 1900, this commanding Cape Ann Victorian which was once part of the renowned Peabody Estate, shows no sign of age. Complete with bay windows, patterned Flemish brick and a slate roof, its exterior is clearly reminiscent of its style. However, following a total conversion back in 1986, this “grand dame” along with its carriage house, is now host to five luxurious year-round condominiums including its penthouse which is currently for sale. Newly priced at just $475,000, it is proudly presented by The Hope and Lisa Team of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage in Manchester.
“The unit spans the entire third floor and offers cool sea breezes and the most gorgeous three-season views of the Atlantic Ocean from every one of its rooms,” says Hope Watt-Bucci. “This craftsman home is in every sense, ‘turn-key’ ready.”
Extensively renovated, the modern kitchen is a chef’s dream with Omega custom cabinets, quartz countertops, stainless steel appliances, a tiled backsplash, and Italian porcelain flooring. Just adjacent, the exceptionally large living room features gleaming Brazilian cherry floors, a wall of over-sized windows, and French doors to a large and private ocean-facing deck. Scrupulous improvements extend to the recently refreshed bathroom where you will find Toto fixtures, a sumptuous soaker tub, state-of-the-art Hans Grohe faucets, and a porcelain floor. Two bedrooms boast multiple windows, and wide pine floors. A third room, currently used as an office. This unit also offers multiple closets and and exclusive storage area in the basement.
Additional enhancements include high-end Hubbardton Forge lighting fixtures and switches, a Sonos sound system, wall mounted televisions throughout and Anderson windows that overlook the Atlantic ocean. A monthly association fee includes landscaping, snow removal, and master insurance. Pets are welcome with association approval.
“Surrounded by nature and just three short blocks to the beach, its quiet grounds still reflect that regal estate stature,” says Watt-Bucci. “This is a truly exceptional property.”
An open house at 158 Hesperus #3 in Gloucester is scheduled for Sunday, September 15th from noon to 2 p.m. For more information, call The Hope and Lisa Team at 978-808-5451.
