We hadn’t noticed that this circa 1800 Georgian style Colonial home was tucked behind a high fence on beautiful historic Bay Road. Set between Boardman Lane & Erins Way, and among many other fabulous homes in Hamilton, Massachusetts. Most of the 1.31 acre yard sits behind and to the side of the home with a well placed in-ground pool and cabana. The gardens are not overly manicured giving the setting a restful bucolic impression.
The home has retained many of the older details including wide pine floors, wood paneling and a large central chimney with multiple fireplaces, while incorporating welcome updates. There are four fireplaces on the first floor and two on the second. This home has a more formal classic center entry with pediment and flattened columns as well as a convenient welcoming kitchen entrance. There are front and back stairways.
Particularly noteworthy is the expansive open living room with three distinct gathering spaces, many windows and two sets of French doors side by side that gaze out and lead to the yard. Adjacent is a warm wood paneled library with bookshelves and fireplace that offers a great balance, perfect for an in home office. The thoughtfully updated kitchen blends well with the older detail. The breakfast room works as a sitting area with a large fireplace and paneled wall. There is a half bathroom and laundry room off of the kitchen. A four season sun room or family room is off of the kitchen and library. A sunny dining room includes a small pantry space between the kitchen and has a fireplace.
On the second floor are four bedrooms and two full bathrooms. The master bedroom has a cathedral ceiling with fan and one of the full baths enjoys a cork floor, walk-in shower, double sinks and a skylight. A fifth bedroom is located on the third floor. Additional features include an attached two car garage, shed and radiant heat in the kitchen and breakfast room.
Convenient access to commuter rail, highways and in-town businesses. Enjoy the many resources on the North Shore from this location. Not far from Crane Beach.
