The best of seaside city life in new Beverly condominiums

Idyllically situated close to the ocean and the fun shops and terrific restaurants of downtown Beverly, Twelve Lothrop is a new development of seven exceptional condominium homes. Formerly a warehouse-style building, the stunning residences are the result of forward-thinking, creative revitalization.

“Buyers will be impressed with the attention to details and the unique architectural elements. The developer chose Andersen Windows, created the 8-foot high doorways and preserved several of the original architectural features, which has resulted in truly beautiful and distinctive residences,” says listing agent Paul Herrick of Keller Williams Realty of Beverly.

Just steps away from the city’s public landing and several Beverly beaches, the homes offer a rare opportunity to purchase a new home in the popular waterfront area.

“It’s really the perfect location when you consider that you can easily walk to the commuter rail, Independence Park, and all of the wonderful shops and other amenities downtown Beverly has to offer,” adds Herrick.

Each unit offers luxury city-living amenities such as a one-car garage with loft storage and an outdoor parking space, central air-conditioning, a gas fireplace, in-unit laundry, and top-line stainless-steel kitchen appliances. And convenient for today’s lifestyle, each home features a first-floor master suite and exclusive private outdoor space.

At the same time each residence boasts a bounty of desirable amenities, there is nothing cookie-cutter about the community, and each unit has features — exposed brick or beadboard walls, tubular exposed ductwork, or exposed beams and plank ceilings — that mark it as a home of distinction.

The homes offer two or three bedrooms, and all feature two fully tiled bathrooms and an abundance of closet space. The kitchens are designed with the cook in mind and offer plenty of counter space and cabinets for storage. The largest of the units features three generous bedrooms, a home office, a soaring ceiling with exposed beams and a large, private yard ideal for the pet owner or gardening aficionado.
