Riverfront perch brings amazing water views
This pristine Contemporary in a quiet cul-de-sac has as its closest neighbor the Danvers River. Every first-floor room, including two utility rooms, has a water view. French doors in the rear lead to a back patio of slate, then to a large wooden deck with a built-in hot tub, and the remainder of the 25,000-square-foot lot is a sandy beach that reaches right to the water’s edge.
The main interior space is a living room with extraordinary cathedral ceilings, dark exposed beams, skylights, and cooling fans. Large half-moon windows crown the space. A liquor cabinet is under the stairwell.
Built in 1986 for a now-retired heating supplier, the entire first floor has radiant heat.
The large kitchen, which has three water-view windows, is U-shaped, has cooking surfaces, Corian counters, and an adjacent pantry with oak cabinets. The first-floor master easily absorbs a king-size sleigh bed, and has sunlight flooding in from water-view windows. The full bath is clad in black-and-white marble and has a whirlpool tub and separate shower with steam unit. There is a walk-in closet.
The second floor has a large sitting area underneath skylights and a large, rectangular water-view window topped by a half-moon window.
The largest of the two second-floor bedrooms has angled walls and a bank of three water-view windows that give a sense of being on the bridge of a large ship. The second bedroom is comfortably sized with two skylights. There is a full bath.
There is an unfinished space in the house and above the two-bay garage. There are six zones for heat. Striped bass are pursued from the beach. Josephine Mehm Baker of J. Barrett & Co. in Beverly Farms is the listing broker.
