“New Year, New Me” doesn’t just apply to those hoping for a total transformation in 2022. This 1880 Victorian in Lynnfield was recently stripped down and refurbished just in time to show off its modern new makeover in the New Year. The original charm of the house remains; it just combined a new style with modern conveniences like new shiny hardwood floors and updated ductless systems.
Half an acre of land with a winding driveway frames the front of this home as you approach. A large cloakroom with built-in items greets you once you enter, inviting you to take off your shoes so you can relax (and not follow the winter sleet on the tiled floors). The first level includes a laundry room, a living room with a pleasant fireplace and a large room with high ceilings. There is also a light and airy kitchen thanks to its nine foot ceilings. The space here is ample and can accommodate a large pantry, Thermador appliances, and a wet bar, while items such as three-inch-thick Calcatta Arno counters and Dellano custom cabinetry imported from Brazil enhance the space. .
On the second floor, you will be entitled to three bedrooms, including the master suite with a complete bathroom redesigned with a double vanity. There is also a bonus desk here for all of your work from home needs. But the scope does not end there. If the three bedrooms are not enough, go back down to find a fourth suite that can meet many needs. With a living room, a full bathroom and a private entrance, you can use this mini apartment as a place for guests or in-laws, a way to give your teenager a little more privacy or a way to have a little more office space that really separates the work from the home part of your home. This is certainly not what the original designers of this house had in mind when it was first created, but it is the essence of a modern renovation.
