Waterfront property on Norwood Pond! It is hard to believe this home is in the midst of paradise, sited on a 3.26 acre lot with 80 +/- acres of city owned green space around it. The property is a great combination of waterfront, easy care perennial gardens, woodlands and a fabulous meadow that currently has a chip and putt area set up on it. Located on private Norwood Pond Road, a cul-de-sac with just a few homes on it. Turn onto the road and immediately leave the busy world behind while easily forgetting that you are in North Beverly with great access to shops, commuter rail, restaurants and Route 128. Simple access to North Shore attractions and resources and so close to Boston.
The house was designed to take advantage of the setting and southern exposure with many windows and multiple sets of sliding glass doors. Upon entrance into the foyer, Norwood Pond can be seen immediately through the dramatic open living room with vaulted cathedral ceilings and an impressive wood burning brick fireplace. The glass doors in the kitchen, dining and living room all lead out to the wrap around oversized deck with awning. There’s a hot tub just below. Great place for enjoying the sunsets.
The spacious white kitchen with gorgeous blue granite counters has a center island with stools and a large dining space with breath taking views.
There are five bedrooms and four full bathrooms. The en suite master bedroom has ample storage with three closets. And the center hallway has a balcony view of the foyer and living room on either side. One of the bedrooms is located on the first floor and any of these rooms would easily make great office space.
The lower level family room has views across the pond, a gas burning fireplace, kitchenette and a bathroom. There is an attached three car garage discreetly placed to the side of the house.
“Norwood Pond is also in the North Atlantic Flyway for migratory birds. Many unique birds and waterfowl come in spring and late fall. Seasonal sitings of buffleheads, mergansers, ring neck ducks and wood ducks, along with great blue herons and great white egrets. The swans are always a joy to watch.” Fabulous location to enjoy year round outdoor activities including cross country skiing, skating, fishing and boating.
