Immaculate Centerville Cape ready for move-in

Clean and crisp and sleek in design, find this truly pristine expanded Cape in one of Beverly’s more-sought-after subdivisions. Sited on a half-acre lot in the enclave of Centerville, this four-bedroom home is virtually move-in-ready. According to Realtor John Farrell of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, who lists this property with his wife and partner, Cindy, the current owners have been truly fastidious with this property.

“They have really freshened it up nicely over the time that they’ve lived here. They took a lovely 1990s home in nice condition and brought it up to 2014 standards by renovating bathrooms, sprucing up interior colors, and adding nice updates like new hardware, lighting and fixtures. This is a home that is seriously ‘ready to go.’”

Architecturally speaking, this house is classic in its style with features such as a pitched roof, center entrance and multiple gables. Once inside, a welcoming foyer with gleaming hardwood flooring and bathed in natural light spills into a formal living room with a fireplace on one side and a spacious dining room on the other.

Thoughtfully planned to create a wide-open, fluid space for entertaining and day-to-day living is a large family room complete with wall-to-wall carpeting, coiffured ceiling, a gas fireplace and French doors to a back deck. Just a few steps away, find a practically designed kitchen featuring stark white cabinetry, lustrous black appliances, granite countertops, an island with room enough for three stools and glass sliders to the aforementioned deck. A generous dining area provides additional seating. Rounding off this first floor is a tiled entryway with ample closets, a laundry room and updated half-bath.

Sharing the upper level are four carpeted bedrooms, including a master with high ceilings and a walk-in closet. Two full baths, one with a shower and the other with a tub, have been recently renovated.
