The outdoor enthusiast will undoubtedly enjoy stepping outside. Ideally suited for seasonal entertaining and alfresco dining, the large level yard is almost completely fenced-in. It also sports an over-sized shed.

Additional amenities include ample off-street parking, a private gravel driveway, mature trees, plush perennial gardens, and an unfinished basement with bulkhead for storage or possible expansion.

Fall 2019 HOMES- Decorating, Renovating, Real Estate

LUX Realty North Shore is a proud advertiser with North of Boston Media Group that publishes, The Eagle-Tribune, The Salem News, Gloucester Daily Times, and Newburyport Daily News. Featured in our Fall 2019 HOMES Issue is 29 Nelson Street, Georgetown- $925,000 listed by Joy Munoz.

Country setting affords beauty and privacy in Georgetown 


Listing agent Joy Munoz of LUX Realty North Shore trusts that this meticulous farmhouse colonial in Georgetown will have you feeling as though you are on vacation all year long. Nestled on nearly five bucolic acres edged by mature trees and beautiful perennials, this arresting home is complemented by a country club-like backyard complete with an in-ground pool and a sprawling deck with covered portico for shade.

 “This very comfortable home has a wide-open and versatile floor plan that was clearly designed for gracious entertaining and comfortable living,” says the Realtor who lists it for $925,000. “Furthermore, its country setting with wildlife galore as well as the land that surrounds it, only adds to the appeal of this special property.”

A welcoming front porch helps to usher you into the main level enhanced by inlaid wood floors and a commanding staircase with a two-story landing above. Thoughtfully open, the living room is truly striking with a vaulted beamed ceiling, glass doors to the backyard, and a soaring stone fireplace with a wood-burning stove insert. Just adjacent, the well-appointed updated kitchen features rich wood cabinets, granite countertops, a breakfast bar, double wall ovens, and a six-burner stove. Should you prefer your meals a bit more formal, this home also features a spacious dining room with decorative wainscoting. Enriching this level are a guest bedroom with a full bath and a cozy family room with wall to wall carpeting and French doors for privacy.

The gleaming wood floors extend to the second level where you will discover a somewhat secluded master suite sporting a newer spa-like bath with a double vanity, a jetted tub, and a custom painted mural. Rounding off this floor are three more bedrooms, a shared bath, and a home office.

Additional features of this remarkable home include a third-floor exercise space with a six-person steam room, central air conditioning, and a three-car garage. While its rather sheltered location provides a great amount of privacy, this property is at the same time close to Route 95 for easy commuting.

“The (current) owners have spent a lot of time and effort in maintaining both the systems and the overall appearance of this home,” says Munoz. “From the moment you come up the driveway you get that ‘Ahhhhhh’ effect. This is the home you’ve been waiting for.”
