This magnificent townhouse in Salem represents a degree of elegance rarely found outside of Boston. Seamlessly blending 19th century sophistication with today’s advanced technology; this striking home is the epitome of “move-in ready”, according to Betsy Merry of MerryFox Realty, who lists it for $809,000.
“This exclusive property affords contemporary design as well as all of the traditional grandeur right in the heart of the city,” she says. “It is seductive, stylish and refined.”
A breathtaking foyer leads the way up to a wide open main level boasting soaring 12-14’ ceilings, recessed mood lighting, gleaming hardwood floors, gorgeous crown moldings, and raised paneling. A step to the left brings you to a generous living/dining area enhanced by floor-to-ceiling windows, custom built-in shelving with separate wine and beer chillers, decorative wainscoting, and the home’s original fireplace. Those proficient in the kitchen will be thrilled to see this recently renewed space featuring bright white cabinetry, quartz counters, and top-of-the-line appliances.
Three bedrooms including the master are all highlighted by large closets and remarkable millwork. Also on this level are a brand new state-of-the-art bath and a slightly secluded library complete with walls of custom bookshelves and cabinets. A private lower level is finished to perfection with a spacious living area and full bath ideal for over-night guests.
Aside from its obvious visual beauty, this residence is on a whole different level “technically speaking”. Sure to be appreciated by any owner, this home is well-equipped with the latest Sonos sound system, Nest climate control, and an electronic lock with app-programmable remote access.
Despite its “city feel”, this property comes complete with tremendous storage, professionally designed English gardens with landscape lighting, a fenced brick patio with koi pond, and coveted two-car parking. Located just off the Common yet tucked away for privacy, it is within minutes to the train, elegant restaurants and cafes, boutique shopping, world renowned museums, and the waterfront.
“This home has all of the charm and stately dignity you could ever hope for,” says Merry. “It is a unique opportunity to live a chic and cultured lifestyle without having the hassle of a major city,” says Merry.
