Charming Cape-style home in Danvers offers lots of opportunities

By Nancy Mades-Byrd

---- — Unique design allows this charming, New England-style Cape home that has been totally remodeled to serve double duty in Danvers. Set up into two distinct living spaces, the residence offers a myriad of opportunities to realize your dream home.

“This is truly a unique property,” observed listing agent Phil Dennesen of Keller Williams Realty of Beverly. “There is really no other home like it in the area.”

With nine rooms and 4,000 square feet of living space, each living space has a private exterior entrance and living area separated by French doors off the dining room, explained Dennesen. There is fabulous in-law potential or you could easily set up a home business as the area zoning allows.

The main living space features the enormous living and dining spaces and kitchen designed for the home cook or the budding gourmet. “The kitchen and baths have been completely renewed with recessed lighting and Corian counters,” said Dennesen. “The hardwood floors that run throughout the home have recently been refinished. Everything in the residence is top quality and has been beautifully maintained.”

Wonderful upgrades including central vacuum, ceiling fans and a full china closet add to the appeal. The home also has an economical gas heating system with ductwork that is ready for easy installation of central air-conditioning. Appliances are upscale, including a new stackable Bosch washer/dryer combination, all being left as a gifts for the new owner, added Dennesen.

The main section features three bedrooms and a fantastic 500-square-foot two-room master bedroom with its own sitting room and closet space that goes on and on. The master bath rivals any spa in terms of luxury and amenities. It features imported European top-of-the-line fixtures, the highest quality tile and a custom glass door.

The residence enjoys the exclusive use of close to a half-acre of land graced by magnificent perennial gardens and flowering trees that enhance the New England charm of the residence, said Dennesen. The backyard is private and accessed through three sets of sliders out to the entertaining-friendly patio. The double gables and porch add even more to the curb appeal of this special home that also boasts an oversized two-car garage.

“The home is ideally located close to major highways, but at the same time is very much a home,” Dennesen added. The huge, high-ceilinged basement adds another 1,200 square feet and could be easily finished for even more living space.

This is a new listing and the residence is offered at $449,900. An open house is planned for Sunday, Sept. 29, from 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. at 74 Elliott St., Danvers.
