The best of seaside city living in new Beverly condominiums

---- — When timeless, classic components such as beamed ceilings, beadboard and hardwood flooring combine with more contemporary touches like recessed lighting and granite accents, the end result can be spectacular. This is clearly evident at 12 Lothrop St. in Beverly, a forward-thinking development of seven exceptional homes with only two left for sale. Formerly a warehouse-style building, each of the condominiums serves as a shining example of creative revitalization at its finest.

Presented by The Paul Herrick Group at Keller Williams Realty, these brand-new residences just steps from the harborside offer chic urban living without the hassle. With desirable first-floor master suites, designer kitchens and unique elements throughout, there should be little doubt, according to the Realtor, as to why this redevelopment project is already 70 percent sold.

“Buyers will be impressed with the attention to details. The developer chose Anderson 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 Herrick.

Currently, interested parties will have their choice of two select units, offered at $359,900 for Unit #3 and $409,900 for Unit #2. Both sunlit homes feature two bedrooms, two full baths and in-unit laundry hookups but vary somewhat in size and amenities.

In the latter, a generous 1,545 square feet includes the aforementioned master suite complete with walk-in closet and a deluxe bath with separate soaking tub, tiled shower and twin sinks. A large, fluid living room features a gas fireplace and oversized French doors to a secluded deck offering peeks of the ocean. The chef’s kitchen, thoughtfully exposed for optimal entertaining, is beautiful with beadboard ceiling, white painted cabinetry and rich granite countertops. One flight above, find a very private second bedroom. Clearly a bonus, this unit includes a garage with storage loft for added space.

Should you prefer something just slightly smaller, Unit #3 boasts 1,220 square feet and similar niceties.

“This unit has been designed for today’s buyer,” says Herrick. “It features wonderful one-level living with ease to main entryways, making it very accessible.”

Here, the master suite is similar, while the second bedroom boasts custom-built closets. The living room in this unit also features a gas fireplace, while doors here lead to a private patio. The adjacent kitchen with granite, stainless-steel appliances and upgraded cabinets is similarly open to the main living area. This home comes complete with a garage, as well.

While these condominiums are nestled in the desirable suburb of Beverly, city conveniences such as the commuter rail, fine dining and public parks are pleasingly nearby.

“This development is something that is truly special and rare — the opportunity to live in a new home so close to the waterfront,” adds Herrick. “It is ideal for the homebuyer looking to escape the chores of individual home ownership and enjoy the outdoors. These homes will sell fast, because they really have it all — location, stunning design and an affordable price.”
