“Rarely does one of the premier homes in all of Beverly become available. Originally commissioned to architect for George W Reed, vice-president of Peabody Coal, and later owned and occupied by The Columban Fathers, this magnificent estate will enthrall the most discerning of buyers.
“The majestic front portico leads to the grand marble foyer, to the palatial living room with intricate custom plaster ceiling and mouldings. This home will not disappoint. “Old World Craftmanship” is evident throughout this estate. Stately formal dining room leads to bright sunroom, perfect for relaxation and quiet occasions. Enormous kitchen features the original Jewett custom built-in refrigerator, impressive sized pantry, and breakfast room. Peaceful library, powder room with private sitting area, and laundry room round out the first floor.
“The second level boasts 7 bedrooms and 6 baths- including a master suite with fireplace in the adjacent sitting room. Set on nearly an acre of tranquility and beautifully landscaped grounds with mature trees and generous flower beds, this home was recently featured in the “Beverly Garden Walk”. This can be your quiet escape within the city and only 20 minutes from downtown.
“The striking slate roof, sunlit drenched rooms, custom woodwork, dentil crown mouldings, medallions, sconces, ornate fixtures, and wrought iron by noted blacksmith Samuel Yellen, are reminiscent of a bygone era. The 3 car detached garage sits below a one bedroom separate coach house. Walk up attic with roughed in plumbing, plus full basement with fireplace and 2 half baths. Don’t miss this once in a lifetime opportunity.”
