This stunning expanded Cape in the pastoral town of Topsfield leaves nothing to the imagination. With three floors spanning just under 4,000 square feet, a newly built barn with loft and garage space, and more than two acres of well-manicured grounds enhanced by patios and a gazebo, you would be hard pressed to find anything quite like it. Listed for $949,000 by The Lopes Group of J Barrett & Company, interested parties also have the option of purchasing an additional 2.94 acres for a total asking price of $1,100,000.
With its charming stone veneer, delightful flower boxes, and cobblestone walkways, a passer-by might assume that this is merely a quaint country cottage. However, once inside it is immediately clear that this home offers way more than meets the eye. The striking main level is complete with sky lit ceilings, gleaming oak floors, walls of over-sized windows, and multiple sets of French doors. Sharing a two-sided wood burning fireplace are a sprawling great room and a spacious dining room with built-in seating. A seamless flow leads right to a gourmet kitchen fit for a master chef or even the unassuming weekend entertainer. This space features granite counter tops, generous handcrafted cabinets, top-of-the-line stainless steel appliances, and two breakfast bars with designer pendant lighting.
A newly added first floor master bedroom suite is truly spectacular with a vaulted ceiling and generous dressing room. A double-sided propane fireplace is meant to be enjoyed from both the bedroom and a spa-like bath boasting a Jacuzzi tub and a large glass shower. A bonus room with closet and full bath is currently used as a home office, but would serve well as a second bedroom suggests the Realtor. Rounding off this level is a mudroom with bath and laundry as well as a flexible bonus room above the three-bay garage.
Sharing the flight above are a second laundry, two full baths, and three additional bedrooms including the original en suite master – equally impressive with a large walk-in closet and a gorgeous bath with two sinks and a step-up soaking tub. The finished lower level which is plumbed for a ½ bath, brings another 1,000 square feet ideal for storage, a media room, or a guest quarter.
“This house is so much bigger than it looks, yet it is so comfortable to live in,” says Dias-Lopes. “There are enough living spaces for everyone to have privacy. The only problem I see here is deciding who gets that second master suite!”
