25 Colonial Drive
A nicely updated end-unit at East Ridge, with 2 bedrooms, 1.5 bathrooms, and nearly 1,800 sq. ft. of living space!
East Ridge is close to some of Merrimack’s most popular eateries and several parks, and you have quick and easy access to the Everett Turnpike. Right next to the condo complex is Merrimack 360 Plaza, which includes several great spots like Planet Fitness, Tucker’s, Hayward’s Ice Cream, The Thirsty Moose, and Beer and Wine Nation.
As you step into the extended, sunny foyer, you'll see you've got room to keep your coats and boots and leashes (yes, up to 2 cats or dogs are welcome in this community!)
Step up into the living room, with features a large south-facing window that brings in cheery sunight, or gives you a nice view of thunderstorms and snowfalls.
The living room leads past the coat closet, half bath, and convenient first-floor laundry into the dining and kitchen area.
The kitchen is the very picture of modern style, and the stainless steel appliances will be staying with the unit, as will the washer and dryer, so all you need to do is move in! There is also a Dutch door leading to the basement (more on that later).
One of the nice things about this end-unit is that there is plenty of ppen green space around it, and you can enjoy some of it from the deck right off the kitchen slider.
As you head upstairs, the second floor landing has another closet, and there is pull-down access to the attic, which, along with storage under the basement stairs, means those winter clothes and holiday decorations can be out of sight for the season.
The primary bedroom features a slider to a small balcony that also takes advantage of the southern sun. It also includes an extra-deep closet and jack-and-jill access to the full bathroom.
The second bedroom also has a large window (looking out at the green space) and double closets.
If you head back downstairs, you'll find a finished basement space large enough to practice ballroom dancing or gather your rowdy friends to cheer on the Red Sox.
Your comfort is assured by ceiling fans, efficient heat-pump hot air and air-conditioning, and a pellet stove in this basement, whose heat makes its way upstairs via two staircases, thanks to that Dutch door leading into the dining area that I mentioned. (The refrigerators on this level are not conveying with the unit.)
Beyond the finished section of basement you get the utility area, with a work bench and workout space, in addition to a walk-out slider to the back yard and patio. That sure makes means getting bikes and workshop projects in and out of the basement easy, and offers easy access for pets to commune with nature.

East Ridge also offers a pool and tennis/basketball court, which are just one building away from this unit. And access to the Everett Turnpike is just down the road for convenient commuting.
With a great combination of space, updates, amenities, and location, you won't want to miss this condo!
