In the Fosters Point neighborhood where tiny cottages have been replaced by substantial homes, this house with its own pier reaching 320 feet into the saltwater Danvers River is a clever hybrid. The original cottage is augmented with wider sides and a second floor that has two glass rectangles, each 60 square feet, that face the river and flood the house with light.

Original details include thick-planked knotty pine paneling and a ship’s hawser for crown molding. The first-floor living room has decorative ship lanterns, a working fireplace, and large windows with water views. The kitchen has maple cabinets, granite counters, and stainless steel appliances, including a six-burner gas stove. A full showered bath is adjacent.

Upstairs and at the front of the house is the large master, with the fireplace chimney jutting through and good closet space. The master bath has a large soaking tub framed by light blue ceramic tile, a separate shower, and double vanity. Across a porch is a second large bedroom. The remaining bedrooms are nicely sized. Second-story floors are carpeted. There is no basement.

Listing broker Kathy DeLorenzo-Macalone of Del Realty Inc. in Danvers is holding an open house Sunday from noon to 2 p.m.
