A striking Woodbury Hillsetting provides the perect
canvas or “Pitch Pines Hill”
— a stately 15-room Vic-torian home near BeverlyFarms Village. Situated on19 private acres, this grand
old house was designed andrst owned by noted Ameri-
can couple Clover and Henry
Adams. Famous socialiteand early photographerClover Adams is oten cited
as the inspiration or Henry
James’ “Daisy Miller,” andher husband, Henry, was adistinguished writer and
historian.
“The house and the prop-erty are exceptional in somany ways,” says listingagent Peter Dorsey o Cold-well Banker ResidentialBrokerage. “In act, evenbeore the house was con-structed, it was a specialplace because the site iswhere the original owner,Henry Adams, proposed to
his wie, Clover.”
Built as the Adams’summer home in 1876and enlarged in 1900, thishome oers 5,202 squareeet o living space. All thebest loved and most-oten-
reproduced elements o Vic-
torian design are evidentthroughout the home, buthere they are the original,one-o-a-kind oerings o master cratsmen. Custommoldings and trim accent
the high ceilings. Much o the
original woodwork includes“aux painted graining” — a
technique in which the artist
would enhance the naturalgrain look o the woodwork
by using a eather to paint itby hand.
Stately and simple, this jewel with ireplacesin the living room, diningroom, library, den and threeout o the ive bedrooms
— exemplies the best o the
19th-century aesthetic. The12 replaces are themselvesworks o art with beautiul
mantelpieces o both artisan-
shaped woodwork and Euro-pean tiles that helped denethe Victorian age.
“The home has this won-derul European eel to it,”Dorsey adds. “Every roomis custom-designed and hasdelightul and unique ele-
ments — rom the impressive
wood-paneled library to therounded bay window, wherethere is a special tin-linedarea or plants. There’s awonderul old pantry in the
kitchen and beautiul interior
stained-glass windows in the
dining room. It’s truly anenchanted place, and whenyou step inside, you eel likeyou’re stepping into a Euro-
pean country.”
The grounds surround-ing the home are equally
impressive in their embraceo the Victorian era, includ-
ing the stone steps builtinto the hillside or thosewanting to “take the air.”There’s an adorable brick-
lined rog pond and a largerpond area that was perhaps
used as a koi pond duringthe home’s grand past, butwhich the current ownersremember using as a skat-ing rink when they were
growing up.
With its hilltop location,
the residence oers glimpses
o the ocean and MiseryIsland rom some o theupper rooms and the beachis within comortable walk-
ing or quick driving distance.
The homeowner is entitledto a coveted beach parkingsticker or beautiul West
Beach.
“The approach to thehouse is a long, long drive-way, which really makesyou eel as though you’reat an estate way ar out inthe country,” Dorsey adds,“but then you realize you’re
really just about a mile rom
Beverly Farms Village anda short commuter rail rideinto Boston. It’s a very spe-
cial house.”
There are upgrades suchas a modern septic systemand generator, but the actthat the house has not beenclassically “modernized” is
another reason why it’s such
an exceptional property,Dorsey says. “In a sense,one o the special thingsabout the place is that the‘old’ parts o it haven’t beenspoiled, and it retains its19th-century charm. It’s justa really comortable, happy
place.”
This property lists or$750,000. For more inorma-tion, contact Peter Dorsey,Coldwell Banker ResidentialBrokerage, at pkdorsey@gmail.com or 978-340-0661.Enjoy an online tour o thisspecial property by visiting

SPRING 2013
From the minute youenter through the impres-sive double doors into thesparkling granite oyerwhere the sweeping curveo the staircase leads youreye up, up to the cathedralceiling, the custom eaturesnever stop in this dramatic
Beverly Colonial.
Lovely mature trees linethe cul-de-sac to evoke a“country” eeling at a prop-erty that is minutes romschools, shops and publictransportation, as well asthe wonderul community
amenities that make Beverly
a top North Shore location.
The desirable neighborhood
is close to commuter routes
and less than two miles rom
the local beach.
“What makes this house
so unique is that it’s literally
in the middle o everything.
It’s an equal distance romshopping and restaurants
in Beverly and rom the Lib-
erty Tree Mall in Danvers,”says listing agent Fay Salt
o Coldwell Banker Residen-
tial Brokerage. “Yet, it’s the
most private home on thecul-de-sac, with acres and
acres o woods behind it that
make it a wonderul oasis.”
The sleek design o theopen-concept main foor isideal or both amily game
night and larger gatherings
with its ireplaced amilyroom, ormal living roomand dining room. Plannedwith the che in mind, thestate-o-the-art kitchenincludes top-quality stain-less-steel appliances, expan-
sive granite countertops and
tons o helpul cabinet space.
The granite-topped “break-ast nook” easily doubles ashomework center by day,cocktail party headquarters
by night.
The main level alsoincludes a separate laundry
room and hal-bath. Upstairs,
enjoy our sizable bedrooms,
a ull bath with stone/ceramic
tile and the impressive mas-ter suite with private bathand storage-riendly walk-incloset. Striking hardwoodfoors are eatured through-
out the home.
“This is truly a customhome,” Salt adds. “It’sunusual or a home in this
price range to have hardwood
foors throughout — even in
the bedrooms. The house just
eels sunny and bright andopen. It’s nicely decorated
in warm, neutral tones. They
 just did a really nice job on
it.”
With more than 3,200
square eet o living space, theresidence is heated by natural
gas and cooled by central airconditioning. The basement
has a nished entertainment
room with custom granite
bar, and the attached garageaords parking or two cars,
while the enormous paveddriveway adds parking orat least our additional vehi-cles. “The driveway is so big
the current owners once con-
sidered actually painting thelines or a basketball court
onto it,” Salt observes.
Everyone is going to wantto go outside and play once
they see the enced yard withits stunning lawn maintained
to perection with a sprin-
kler system and proessional
landscaping. There’s a sepa-rate area or gardening that
gets the perect combinationo sun and shade or the pri-
vate wooded lot. But, the cen-terpiece o the grounds is the
ready-or-entertaining deck
overlooking the sparkling in-
ground gunite pool.
This property lists or$599,000. For more inorma-tion, contact listing agentFay Salt, Coldwell BankerResidential Brokerage, atay.salt@NEMoves.com or
