North Salem townhome offers unsurpassed adaptability

BY LILLIAN SHAPIRO, SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT FOR REAL ESTATE MARKETPLACE

It will prove quite difficult to find a “home” that compares to this impeccably maintained townhouse. Complete with a seamless blend of old-world charm and current-day amenities, this bi-level home offers an unmatched versatility, a quiet North Salem location, and enchantingly appointed rooms. Recently introduced by Team Cotraro of LUX Realty North Shore, it listed for $624,500.

Spanning the second and third levels of a masterfully converted 1920s Colonial, this unit is filled with beautiful details such as gleaming hardwood floors, original crown moldings, and stained glass, exposed brick, and bay windows. While many of these features are deeply rooted in its history, modern updates have brought this home to a whole other level, including high beaded ceilings, recessed lighting, and a gas fireplace in the living/dining room. The newly updated kitchen is absolutely stunning with high-end stainless steel appliances, quartz countertops, a soapstone backsplash, custom built-in shelving, and a sweet breakfast nook. Rounding off this floor are two bedrooms, one full and one half bath.

Offering peek-a-boo ocean views, a private balcony, and a world of possibilities, the second level is a virtual “home in itself”. Ideally suited for a master suite or guest quarter perhaps, this phenomenal space affords a generous room complete with a kitchenette, wine chiller, skylight, and a repurposed sliding barn door. An expansive bedroom sporting vaulted ceilings with exposed beams, a remote control chandelier and a large walk-in closet is further enhanced by an en suite bath with a two-sided shower, a luxurious soaking tub, and a handcrafted linen closet. A bonus lower level offers two heated rooms as well as a spacious storage area.

Other notable highlights of this bright and airy property include a private entrance, an additional two porches, an updated two-zone heating system, a one-car garage, and a brick patio with fire pit. Though tucked away in a peaceful neighborhood, this home is just a half-mile from the train station and less than a mile from vibrant downtown Salem.

“This is the perfect home for that buyer in search of something special. There is absolutely nothing ‘cookie cutter’ about it,” says Mary Cotraro. “The seller, who is a master craftsman, poured his heart and soul into this house and it shows. Each and every room is unique unto itself. You literally have to stop and look around in order to take it all in.”
