Wenham Open House Sunday 12-2pm

Cape Ann Home

Join Bob and Sue McDermott of the McDermott MacCarthy Team, along with myself Brandon Pratt from CrossCountry Mortgage-Gloucester, Sunday 12-2pm in Wenham at 2 Charles Davis Drive. 

This quintessential family home, with it’s four bedrooms and five full baths, was also designed for entertaining. As their children grew, they enjoyed hosting team celebrations, philanthropic gatherings and intimate dinners. Upon entering, guest’s eyes drifted up the double winding staircases, leading to the fire-placed master suite and three ensuite bedrooms. Gleaming hardwood floors, a chef’s kitchen and abundant pantry, four fireplaces, and walls of windows to drink in the outdoors complimented their sophisticated tastes. The heated, in-ground pool brought the wonder outdoors as the fire pit teased star gazing, conversation and laughter well into the night.  This house so many amazing features, it must be seen to be believed.

Please contact Bob or Sue McDermott for showing options or stop by Sunday…
