Danvers Colonial with inviting pool -- just in time for summer

By Lillian Shapiro

---- — Sited on nearly an acre and close to the reservoir, this attractive Danvers Colonial in the sought-after Putnam View Estates subdivision makes a stunning first impression. With a wide-open and adaptable floor plan bathed in a gorgeous neutral palate, this home is sure to satisfy today’s contemporary homebuyer. Should your lifestyle require generous spaces in which to entertain or comfortable rooms in which to unwind, this is a house to fit the bill.

“Right now, you would be hard pressed to find another listing like this one on the local market,” says Realtor Pamela Spiros of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “This home was designed to accommodate easy living. There is such a natural, airy flow, with all of the rooms melding seamlessly together, and there is tons of storage throughout.”

Anchored by a lavish kitchen, the sun-drenched family room features gleaming wood floors, generous windows and French doors to a covered porch. For formal meals, the dining room is quite elegant with raised paneling and decorative trims. Tying these spaces together, the kitchen, renovated just two years ago, is a true show-stopper with copious cabinetry, built-in window seat with storage, granite counters, high-end appliances, including a double wall oven and a six-burner Wolf stove, pendant lighting and an island large enough for four stools. Should you require additional seating, the breakfast nook provides more than enough space. Roomy enough for a large table and chairs, this alcove is complete with a wood-burning fireplace and sliders to the 16-by-38-foot Gunite free-form heated swimming pool with attached hot tub. Rounding off this level is a half-bath and an in-home office.

Upstairs find four bedrooms, including a newly added 24-by-26-foot master complete with soaring cathedral ceilings, plush carpeting, recessed lighting and a tremendous walk-in closet. Rivaling the finest of spas, the sumptuous en suite bath boasts double vanities, top-of-the-line fixtures, stone soaking tub and oversized “rain” shower.

For bonus space, the finished basement with half-bath and two rooms includes a professional dance floor with mirrored walls, serving well perhaps as a dance studio, rec room or guest suite. Additional amenities such as a two-car garage with ample storage and separate workshop, an alarm system and underground sprinklers complete this lovely home.

“Not only is this home striking and meticulously maintained, it has a location that is ideal,” Spiros says. “Perched atop a lovely nook, fronted by beautifully landscaped stone retaining walls, its height allows for the prettiest views. The setting is very private, yet it is within minutes of all of the major commuting routes. It is just a classically beautiful property.”

This home, which lists for $750,000, is shown by appointment only. To arrange a viewing, or for additional information, call Realtor Pamela Spiros at 978-808-6022.
