1122 Main Street, Hanover, MA MLS ID 71448171

Property I Viewed Today......

Today I visited a broker open house for a property located at 1122 Main Street in Hanover and boy is this one a beaut! I stepped in through the front door and I felt like I walked right into a “Pottery Barn” catalogue.  The homeowner let me know that she bought the property about 10 years when the owners of the home next door decided to subdivide their property and sell off the barn and about 1/2 an acre of property. The current owner of this property transformed the barn into a beautiful house but they managed to keep a lot of the original charm and detail. The hardwood floors have been restored and they are fabulous. Rustic is a word that comes to mind to describe the flooring. You can still see the original wood beams run across the ceiling.

When you walk in through the front door, you enter into a large, open living room and kitchen. The layout of the living room and kitchen with a full bathroom on the first level is absolutely perfect for entertaining. I can imagine the new owner throwing a Christmas party in this home and showing of the fabulous features to family and friends. The kitchen is fantastic with white cabinets, black granite counters and high end stainless steel appliances. There is also a built in desk space in the kitchen which will allow you to easily look up recipes on your computer while you cook or do a multitude of other tasks. This is the type of kitchen that any chef would be happy in. There is tons of counter space and cabinets and a large pantry located off the kitchen.

All three bedrooms are located on the second floor with one bathroom. All of the rooms have skylights which means that an abundance of light spills into the rooms on sunny days. The closet space is decent too. 

Located off the back of the house are two large decks. You enter the first floor deck from the kitchen and it is big enough to entertain on. The deck looks out over a beautifully landscaped garden. The entrance of the second floor deck is through one of the bedrooms. This makes one of the bedrooms more ideal to being an office unless the occupant of the room does not mind people passing through to get out onto the deck.

The basement is finished and it currently serves as a family room/office. There is also a workshop area and laundry area located at the rear. I was impressed with the additional closet space located in the basement. My only issue with the basement was that the ceilings were on the low side so may limit taller, 6ft plus, people walking around comfortably.

My Favorite Features:
  • ·         The original detail that was restored.
  • ·         Copious amounts of outdoor space including 2 decks and a large, landscaped garden.
  • ·         The awesome layout of the kitchen/living room.
  • ·         The cubby style coat closet. It is reminiscent of a kid’s classroom and super cute!

Lease Favorite Features:
  • ·         There is no garage or space to build one.
  • ·         Low ceilings in the basement.
  • ·         Entrance to the second floor deck is through a bedroom.

The price is $399,900. This works out to about $216/sq foot. This is a decent price for Hanover. Definitely not a deal but you are paying for a home that you can literally move right into without having to change anything.

Overall would I live here? Definitely!! I think it is a beautiful house and I am sure someone will walk in and fall in complete love the character and charm. The price is spot on for the market.
