   Gloucester cottage offers striking blend of old and new

                BY LILLIAN SHAPIRO, SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT FOR REAL ESTATE MARKETPLACE

Surrounded by two and a half acres of private upland and marsh boasting unobstructed views of Biskie Head and beyond, this classic 1920’s cottage in Gloucester brings a perfect combination of twentieth-century charm and modern day convenience. Meticulously preserved and updated by its most recent stewards of more than thirty years, this residence is likely to be unlike any other you have seen, believes LUX Realty North Shore’s Brian Marvelley, who shares the $948,000 listing with Jane Meterparel.

“This is a property that allows you to swim, fish, or launch a canoe or kayak right outside your door,” says the Realtor. “The (current) owners bought this house as a summer cottage and quickly got to work insulating the roof and all of the exterior walls, installing a forced hot air heating system with central air, modernizing the plumbing, and adding a whole house generator. Despite those improvements, every visible update has been made in keeping with its history. This is a modernized house with all the early 1900’s coastal cottage details.”

A mudroom leads right to the kitchen where you will find period features such as rich natural fir walls and cabinetry, a good morning staircase, a butler’s-style pantry, and an 1880’s ornate coal burning fireplace (converted to propane) with stone surround. At the same time, this space also brings a fashionable soapstone farmer’s sink and a porcelain stove refurbished to include a six-burner range and two ovens.

That striking woodwork flows effortlessly into the formal dining and living rooms that feature large windows, a built-in china cupboard, a stone fireplace, beamed ceilings with period-appropriate fans, and French doors leading to a covered water-facing porch and hot tub. Completing this level is an enclosed heated sunroom and a powder room.

Upstairs, the master suite is beautiful with a gas stove, double marble-topped vanity, an over-sized walk-in shower with thirteen showerheads, and a private porch with access to a roof-top deck with shower. Rounding off this floor are three more bedrooms, a small laundry room, and a shared bath with a claw foot tub.

Additional highlights of this remarkable property, which is just minutes to the highway and commuter rail, include hardwood floors, a large basement for storage, a second outdoor shower, a one-car detached garage with a wood stove, and plenty of parking for guests.

The Realtors invite all interested parties to 31 King Philip Road in Gloucester for an open house on Sunday, November 17th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. For questions, or to schedule a private showing, call Brian Marvelley at 978-390-7146 or Jane Meterparel at 781-237-3341.

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.”

For more information, or to schedule a showing, call Mary Cotraro at 978-927-3363 or Mike Cotraro at 978-337-6355.
