‘New year, new me’ doesn’t just apply to those hoping for a total makeover in 2022. This 1880 Victorian in Lynnfield has been recently stripped and refurbished just in time to show off its new modern makeover in the new year. The original charm of the house remains; it just combined fresh styling with modern conveniences, like new gleaming hardwood floors and updated ductless systems.
Half an acre of land with a winding driveway frames the front of this home on the approach. A large mudroom with built-in units greets you once you enter, inviting you to kick off your shoes to relax (and not follow the slushy winter snow on the tiled floors). The first level includes a laundry room, a living room with a cozy fireplace and a large room with high ceilings. There is also a bright and airy kitchen thanks to its nine foot ceilings. The space here is ample and can accommodate a large pantry, Thermador appliances and a bar, while elements such as three-inch-thick Calcatta Arno countertops and custom Dellano cabinets imported from Brazil enhance the interior. space.
On the second level, you will be entitled to three bedrooms, including the master suite with a renovated full bathroom with a double sink. There’s also a bonus office here for all of your work-from-home needs. But the scope does not stop there. If three bedrooms aren’t enough, head back downstairs to find a suite with a fourth bedroom that can meet many needs. With a living room, full bathroom and private entrance, you can use this extra space as a place for guests or in-laws, a way to give your teen a little extra privacy or a way to have a little more office space that really separates the work from the home part of your home. It’s certainly not what the original designers of this house had in mind when it was born, but it is what a modern renovation is.
