---- — “Cosmopolitan chic” may not necessarily be characteristic of the suburbs, but neither is this brand-new condominium in Salem. Boasting all of the features one might expect from the big city, such as a wide-open contemporary floor plan, high ceilings and state-of-the-art systems, this premier townhouse, brought to you by local developer Joe Skomurski, offers that and so much more.
“This is an absolutely spectacular listing that has already sparked an awful lot of interest in the short time that it’s been on the market,” says Realtor Betsy Merry of MerryFox Realty. “When people walk through, they all seem to comment on the tranquility and overall calming quality it exudes. It’s simply beautiful.”
Spanning a generous 1,625 square feet, this is the first of two completely renovated units to be offered in what was once the builder’s family home. To reflect today’s more current tastes, Skomurski reinvented every room by infusing them with various shades of creams and whites and incorporating upscale contemporary lighting, sleek fixtures and rich dark hardwood flooring.
Thanks to a fluid design, the main level is the perfect venue for entertaining, as the living and dining rooms blend seamlessly with the kitchen. Here, find custom Shaker-style cabinets with brushed nickel hardware, granite counters, top-of-the-line stainless-steel appliances and an ample breakfast bar. For more seasonal dining, perhaps, a glassed-in three-season porch leads the way to a large deck overlooking the perennial-filled backyard. Rounding off this floor, a master bedroom suite has all the bells and whistles, including a walk-in closet and spa bath with custom tile and stained maple cabinetry. Two additional bedrooms and a full bath share the second level.
Additional features include 6-inch crown moldings throughout, central air, gas heat, an innovative high efficiency “on-demand” hot water heater and parking for two. Priced at just $379,000, this home is situated in a lovely established neighborhood within a short distance of both the harbor front and eclectic downtown Salem.
While not quite completed, Unit #1, featuring two bedrooms, two baths and 1,250 square feet of single-level living space, should be available for sale within the next few weeks.
“Both homes will offer the same upscale, high-end finishes,” says Merry. “These are breathtaking townhomes, literally rebuilt from scratch, that are loaded with natural light and every amenity you could possibly think of. Anyone would be proud to call either one of them ‘home.’”
