This strikingly handsome Colonial set on a 3.2 bucolic acres in Hamilton includes a portion of the Ipswich River. Stunningly renovated and meticulously maintained by its current owners, this beautiful home is unconditionally “turn-key ready”, according to Realtor Josephine Baker of J Barrett & Company, who lists the property for $1,479,000.

This entire home is bathed in natural light and is classically appointed with hardwood oak floors, crown moldings, high ceilings, and tall windows. A focal point of the main level, the remodeled kitchen is as attractive as it is well-equipped with generous white cabinetry, stainless steel appliances including a double oven, honed black granite counter tops, and a solid cherry island with designer pendant lighting above. A generous butler’s pantry opens to a large casual dining area and a fireplaced family room with built-in bookcases. French doors lead the way to a glorious sunroom, barbecue deck and fenced backyard. Connected by an office alcove are the formal living and dining rooms, both enhanced by wood burning fireplaces and walls of windows.

An en suite master on the second floor is a true oasis with a soaring cathedral ceiling, double vanity, whirlpool bath, and a steam shower. Sharing this level are three additional bedrooms, a full bath with soaking tub and separate shower, and a laundry room.

While there are remarkable features around each and every corner of this home, it is the lower level that holds what is perhaps the greatest surprise of all — a state-of-the-art movie theater with surround sound and a stage, a workshop with dry storage area, an exercise room and a very spacious playroom, which includes custom cabinets and shelving, and windows to the backyard.

Additional amenities include a walk-up attic, central air conditioning and vacuum, an automatic whole house generator, updated light fixtures, a fenced courtyard with a bluestone patio and formal gardens, and a lovely farmer’s porch. A barn-style three-car garage with a heated and air conditioned upper level, large picture windows and a separate entrance would make the ideal studio or private office, suggests the Realtor. Boasting views of the river, this home is ideally located just a tenth of a mile from the Appleton Farms walking and riding trails, less than seven miles from Crane Beach, and within minutes of Hamilton/Wenham’s top-rated schools.

“The (current) owner happens to be a very talented artist and you see throughout, how her undeniable eye for color smartly compliments the landscape,” says Baker. “This is a very special and unique offering.”
