Danvers colonial flexible, dependable and affordable

---- — Featuring everything one would want in a family home, from a desirable location to plenty of room in which to roam, this Danvers property also boasts an appealing turn-of-the-century allure. Even with the expected symmetrical façade and center-entrance design, there are still a few surprises inside this circa 1870 Colonial.

“This house offers beautiful built-in cabinetry, original wood floors, solid paneling and so many touches unseen in newer homes today,” says listing agent Terryanne St. Pierre of Tache Real Estate. “The interior of this home really offers fabulous living spaces to satisfy just about any buyer looking for quality and dependability. This residence has been lovingly cared for by the current longtime owners and it shows throughout. The new owners will need to do some updates but this home is certainly worth investing in.”

Step through the front door to find adjacent living and dining rooms, each with its own classic charm. Twin custom china cupboards with plentiful shelving and closet space flank the living room, while paneled wainscoting adds warmth and detailing to the spacious dining room. Both rooms are bathed in natural light, thanks in part to large bay windows. Comparably, the adjoining kitchen is bright and cheery and sufficiently equipped.

“Bringing the outdoors in” according to the agent, is a fully carpeted family room complete with easy access to a well-manicured backyard with storage shed and fencing. Thanks to the inclusion of a full bath on this level, the possibility of a first-floor master renovation would be a relatively simple project, should one choose down the road.

Three bedrooms and a second full bath occupy the second floor while additional expansion prospects await one flight up. Whether the sprawling walk-up attic is to be used strictly for storage or for added square footage perhaps, this extra space is sure to prove helpful.

This home is listed for $299,900, a fabulous price tag for this area, believes St. Pierre. “Danvers is a very sought-after community and this particular house is in a great part of town. There is ample off-street parking and it is convenient to shopping, entertainment and major routes.”
