Your Home: Natural Beauties

Coastal contemporary living in Beverly Farms

With a few updates to match their lifestyle, this contemporary home in Beverly satisfies one couple’s five-year search for their dream home by the sea.

FOR FIVE YEARS, Joe and Mary Carlucci searched for a year-round home on West Beach in Beverly Farms. “We always said the right property would eventually become available,” says Mary. Finally, in 2010, the couple’s patience paid off. “About three minutes after we walked through the front door, I was telling the broker we’d put in an offer,” says Joe.

The house that captivated the Carluccis has awe-inspiring ocean views, 4 acres of lush lawn, and 300 feet of private beach. Equally appealing was the home’s capacity to accommodate their family’s needs, overnight guests, and large-scale entertaining. With three sons ages 26, 25, and 17, the couple’s wish list included ample space for family time, along with some private areas.
