111 South Street, Norwell, Ma. 02061
The home is set nicely off the street in the middle of 1.38 acres leaving plenty of room for the expansive front, side, and rear lawn with an irrigation system and dedicated irrigation well.
The home’s design was inspired by an oceanfront summer home on Cape Cod and will appeal to buyers who recognize true quality and attention to detail which include: cultured stone chimneys, flared shingled sidewalls, solid wood decorative gable brackets, red copper roof details, and cedar wood gutters are just some of the design elements that give this home the feeling it was built in a past era. The custom built cupola over the two car garage with it’s wooden doors enhances this feeling. Hand nailed mahogany decks, red brick walkways, granite steps, and beautiful stone walls, are some of the additional features that distinguish this property. The plantings are enhanced by a Nantucket style, white fenced garden area at the front entrance which you can view from the covered front porch with mahogany decking.
The home’s interior finishes reflect the homeowner’s desire to create a comfortable, casual atmosphere of rich materials with earth tones and understated details. In addition to the red oak floors, the radiant heat kitchen floor and the counter backsplash is a multicolored slate, the counters are honed Vermont Granite resembling soapstone. The beadboard mudroom and first floor half bath have a warm, tumbled travertine limestone floor and the sunroom floor is antique heart pine reclaimed from 19th century mill buildings and finished to a warm honey color. The home’s “great” room features architectural columns and a beautiful custom mantle with a limestone tile surround. A separate reading nook provides a cozy area to curl up with a book or overstuffed chair.
The kitchen features white custom cabinetry and a large cherry island with turned furniture legs. The adjoining pantry has a countertop made of cherry, a bar sink, and a second dishwasher to accommodate entertaining. The home’s large rear deck and covered front porch extend the living space. Top of the line stainless steel appliances include: a Subzero refrigerator, a Viking six burner cooktop and Viking double wall ovens. The two full bathrooms located on the second floor feature porcelain tubs with full ceramic tiles surrounds, ceramic tile floors, and granite countertops. The master bath features a separate toilet room, whirlpool tub, marble floor, tiled shower with marble bench, and a double sink vanity with granite counters. The master suite has hardwood flooring, two walk in closets and a separate, adjacent office area before you enter the suite.
The finished third floor has more than 800 square feet of living space including a full bath, game and media areas, plus a storage area.
The home is very deep and oriented front to back on the lot which provides a very spacious home.
This home is a distinctive home of exceptional quality.
