This updated, immaculately maintained Cape offers modern style galore, plenty of space for the whole family, and a quiet neighborhood just across from the Victorian Lincolnshire mansion, an architectural marvel consisting of ten apartments home to mostly young professionals. A sidewalk from adjacent Hidden Road provides a safe walking path to everything the town center has to offer including shops, dining, the library, and more. Families will love being surrounded by two nearby neighborhoods that often come together and socialize with block parties and other activities. It’s the perfect location to enjoy quiet time at home on a low-commotion road or meander a little further to reach out and connect with neighbors.

The recently landscaped front yard makes a lovely first impression, brimming with colorful perennial gardens for added privacy and curb appeal.

The inviting formal living room is full of natural light with a huge bay window and a wood burning fireplace.

Just beyond the living room the main level’s open concept floor plan begins to unfold with the dining room and kitchen, perfect for comfortable living and entertaining. Everyone will love to gather in the beautifully updated, open concept kitchen as the chef works their magic with granite countertops, stainless steel appliances, cherry cabinetry, a breakfast bar, hardwood floors, recessed lighting, and pantry storage.

A seamless transition opens to the dining room with chair rail and a large picture window to welcome the sunshine.

A cathedral ceiling stretches high above the family room as a wood-burning stove creates a cozy place to gather with large windows to adore the surrounding nature views. A half bathroom on the main level offers convenience for guests.

Special details, including a sliding barn door and ceramic floor tiles, transformed the enclosed porch into a cheerful sunroom with an open feel between the living room and kitchen. The side entry/mudroom is also accessible from the kitchen with an easy connection to the two-car garage, driveway, and yard.

The spacious yard has so much to offer with patio areas for entertaining, plenty of space for kids and pets to play, an irrigation system, blueberry bushes, a peach tree, and occasional glimpses of small wildlife including the large groundhog who returns each year. The side yard offers a flat area that is great for badminton, croquet, and volleyball.

This thoughtfully designed home is guaranteed to fit your family’s needs with the versatility of a first level primary suite. The light filled bedroom was updated and expanded to create a private oasis with picture windows, recessed lighting, a ceiling fan, a spacious closet, and a spa-like bathroom with a quartz-topped dual sink vanity and a beautifully tiled shower.

A second main level bedroom is perfect for family, accommodating guests, or to use as desired, offering easy access to the full family bathroom with a tiled shower.

Three more bedrooms on the second level are a perfect retreat at the end of a long day, featuring hardwood floors and ample closet space. The family bathroom on the second level is thoughtfully updated with a dual sink vanity, ceramic tile floor, and a tiled tub with a shower.

The walkout lower level is an entertainment haven featuring a huge recreation room with a wet bar, exercise area, playroom, and laundry. What a wonderful place to gather on movie night, watch the game, or enjoy rainy day activities. The lower level is carpeted, features the home’s third wood burning fireplace, and has huge picture windows to let in lots of natural light. An exterior door offers another great connection with the backyard and beyond.

There is nothing to do but move right in and begin creating new memories in this meticulous home beaming with pride of ownership and set perfectly in a prestigious neighborhood. Andover offers a highly rated public school system and this location is ideal within walking distance to both Phillips Academy and the private Pike School. Enjoy an outdoor lifestyle with Andover’s many conservation areas and hiking trails yet appreciate being within walking distance to all the fabulous shops, restaurants and parks while having easy access to the Commuter Rail and Routes 93/495.
