About 57 Second Street

Wake up in your dream home every day. The Merritt House is a classic New England colonial, exuding modern elegance at every turn. Its historical charm has been masterfully preserved and improved and includes a converted carriage house. A remarkable double-lot property brimming with professionally landscaped gardens glows in the light of flickering gas lamps. Thoughtfully renovated as a “wellness home” featuring environmentally conscious enhancements integrated from top to bottom: low-VOC paints and building materials, reclaimed lumber, and a whole-house water filtration system. Custom designed and crafted by local contractors, meticulous attention to detail is prevalent. Enter the home and become captivated by the bright, open concept. Admire cathedral ceilings above and timeless white- and red-oak hardwood flooring below. There's a gourmet kitchen with Aga stove, wet bar, fireplace, and a reclaimed wooden island. There are two primary bedrooms in the main house, one on the first floor and one on the second, each with an en suite bath. The second-floor suite also features an office area, a loft media room with built-in bed nook, and a bath with an inviting claw-foot tub and separate shower with double vanities. Exceptional additional living quarters for guests are found in the guest cottage. The idyllic cottage features another full seating and dining area, kitchenette, and gorgeous full bath with penny tile. This turn-key residence includes the furniture.
