As part of the Sotheby’s International Realty network all of my exclusive listings are distributed on a local, national and international level regardless of price point. This allows me to provide white glove service to all of my exclusive listings, regardless of the price point. In an online world working with a real estate professional with an international network is key. Because of my network I am fortunate to preview some truly exceptional homes right here in Cape Ann and beyond.
In today’s blog post I want to take a look at some truly exceptional homes that have been recently listed by some of my colleagues nationally and internationally. These exceptional homes all offer exceptional, open and airy living spaces. I hope you enjoy them.

Pennsylvania – $985,000
This Gothic Revival church built in 1893 has been converted into a pair of incomparable residences. In this larger one, white oak entrance doors foreshadow an astonishing two-story living area with a cathedral ceiling and custom woodwork, including mahogany doors, columns, beams, and more. The room is lit with overhead hanging church lights and a stained glass window, both original and restored, the latter using elements from Tiffany & Co. Meanwhile, a framed two-way mirror discreetly conceals the entertainment system. The kitchen in addition to more impeccable woodwork sports Meile appliances and a granite island, while the dining area has a custom built-in hutch with yet more original stained glass from the church windows in its upper doors. Both have access to a small terrace. The second floor family room has a gas fireplace enclosed by granite along with more stained glass windows and access to the steeple and bell tower by a small custom spiral staircase. When it is time to unwind after a long day, the second floor master suite has a cathedral ceiling and reading lights built-in over the bed area. The master bath includes marble countertops and a European shower with a marble brick mosaic tile floor. Its vanity also has an arched gothic-style mirror with interior makeup lighting and a makeup organizer that pulls out of the seating area. A spacious rooftop garden deck area and hot tub exist for entertaining guests, many of whom will also appreciate the finished basement with its wine cellar, theater, exercise room, and full bath. Additional features of the home include a security system with video surveillance, central vacuum system, geothermal heating and cooling, and radiant floor heating in the first floor, master suite, and basement.
