25 Haven Way, a remarkable estate on 3.77 manicured acres. Once part of the Franklin Haven, an 80+ acre estate that stretched from the village to the beachhead and west towards Paine Avenue. It is said that Haven, the president of Merchants National Bank of Boston purchased the original 20 acres for $500 in 18461. With deeded beach access, the property optimizes timeless elegance and privacy in the very desirable village of Beverly Farms. The main structure, a Colonial Revival was built in 1929 and was once owned by Edward Pickering Parker2, of the Parker Brothers game manufacturing family, i.e. “Monopoly”. An addition was completed in 2008 by the firm Carpenter & MacNeille.
There are five bedrooms, six full and one half baths. In addition, there is a black walnut paneled den with a wood burning fireplace, formal living and dining rooms, a sunroom, and front and back staircases.
The new wing has a large chef’s kitchen with center island and a step down into a breakfast room that opens into a family room. Just off the family room is an enclosed mahogany screen porch that leads the way out to a cut granite and bluestone terrace overlooking the in-ground heated pool, spa and tennis court. There are two options for a main bedroom suite, both with private roof decks overlooking the lush green landscape that was recently curated by noted landscape architect Hugh Collins.
Additional amenities include a home office suite, exercise room, and an ensuite guest room. Enjoy radiant heat in the kitchen and in most of the bathrooms. The lower level has a craft room with a wood burning fireplace and mechanical room with a Viessmann heating system. There is central air conditioning throughout, a whole house generator and an attached 3-bay garage. The property is moments to the village center, commuter rail, and a private path to West beach. About thirty miles to Boston and Logan Airport.
