The picturesque yellow Victorian home with the swing on its porch is a welcoming point to the village of Manchester-by-the-Sea. Though Manchester has continuously been a highly sought after area to live in, the pandemic market has proved its value many times over and has been hotly in demand. With very few homes on the market, finding the perfect home can be more challenging for buyers.
The Victorian-by-the-Sea was thoughtfully designed and renovated by Scott Johnson of Cedar Hill Design Residential, a local builder known for his impeccable taste. With exceptional building craftsmanship, Scott completely renovated this once three family dwelling to a singing family and created a contemporary home with original Victorian farmhouse characteristics. Paying attention to every exquisite detail, Scott furnished this gorgeous home with classic push-button electrical switches, cast iron heating grates, glass door knobs, cottage paneling, beadboard plank ceilings, wide plank hickory flooring, as well as a gorgeous marble fireplace reclaimed from a house in the South End of Boston. All of the cabinetry throughout the property was custom designed and built, including the kitchen which features a 9′ island with a single slab of Italian marble for the countertop, making the Victorian-by-the-Sea a truly, beautifully crafted home.
Here’s the story of Mike and Kate, who found the perfect home for them and their family at 25 Bridge St, the exceptional, completely renovated home in the heart of Manchester-by-the-Sea, and their experience buying in the midst of a pandemic and a crazy market.
Like many others, Mike and Kate and their family sought out Manchester-by-the-Sea for the lifestyle that it provides, enjoying the perks of Village living, and its exceptional school district and community. Located within a short stroll from the gorgeous Singing Beach and all the charming village has to offer, like local favorites Manchester By-the-Book, Laughing Gull, Bravo-by-the-Sea, and Cala's, as well as many green spaces.
A few words of wisdom from Kate for those considering buying in this current market:
"I would advise people looking to buy right now to be strategic in where they're looking. We love Manchester and knew it was the place we wanted to be so when we found a house that fit everything we were looking for, we acted quickly. I would recommend anyone thinking of moving right now to move quickly, because the market is hot. There’s not a lot of time to plan and be over prescriptive on how you approach the process, because the demand is so high. Our experience with the Syndi Zaiger group was exceptional and they truly made this process speedy and seamless."
Not only did the Syndi Zaiger Group help Kate and Mike to buy their dream home at 25 Bridge St, they also were the team behind the listing. Selling 25 Bridge St included a strategic approach, beginning with a pre-marketing campaign through Compass' Coming Soon offering.
Leaving lasting impressions through the Compass Coming Soon campaign, Syndi was able to generate interest on 25 Bridge St before coming to market. With interest already built up, Syndi attracted the right market and demographic at the open house and met Mike and Kate, the perfect family for 25 Bridge St. The Syndi Zaiger group had an accepted offer within the first week.
