My ocean view home with beautiful vistas was built by the Rockport Granite Company in 1817. It is a comfortable and bright 3 story house that can sleep 11, has 4 bedrooms, 2.5 bathrooms, a living room, a dinning room, a TV breakfast nook, a second floor landing and sitting room and 3 decks. The house is in the scenic New England coastal town of Rockport, MA.
It's just a 15-minute walk to quaint Rockport center; a 5-minute walk to Back Beach and 7-minute walk to Front Beach; a short drive to several larger beaches; a 2 minute walk to wooded trails circling pristine quarries; and 3/4 mile to Rockport train station with regular 1-hour train service to Boston.
The large kitchen with island opens to the TV room, living and dining areas, half bath, and deck, all ideal for preparing food and socializing. There is a charcoal grill, and comfortable chairs on each deck to enjoy morning coffee, reading or just enjoying the view. The deck off the kitchen is perfect for grilling and dining. Sheets and bath towels, are included.
There is no central A/C. The house is well insulted and well heated in the winter. There are plenty of windows and 4 patio doors providing a cool sea breeze. The 3rd floor has 2 ceiling fans. There are several other fans in the house.
The house is equipped with wireless internet, and a wireless booster on each floor
Rockport is an historical and charming seaside community on the tip of Cape Ann, one of the prettiest coastal area in Massachusetts. The town has miles of coastline, several beaches, walking trails along the water and through forest, a classic New England harbor with renowned Motif No. 1 at its center, Bearskin Neck with cafes, seafood restaurants, and a thriving artist community with many galleries.
The house is a pleasant walking distance to most of the above locations including the new Shalin Liu Performance Center and to several seafood restaurants. You can make the walk just a bit longer by walking via the headlands which look out over the ocean on one side and to the town harbor on the other. Just less than 2 miles away is the magnificent Halibut Point State Park, my favorite daily run.
Watch the sun rise over the ocean from the decks, take path from the house for a walk in the woods, an early or late swim in a clean refreshing quarry. Stroll to Back or Front Beach or to Rockport's center for leisurely shopping and enjoy delicious coffee and strudels. Rent kayaks and paddle across the harbor to Thatcher Island and its twin lighthouses. Bring bicycles to explore Cape Ann's countless seaside roads and pathways within easy riding from the house.
A short 10 minute drive puts you in the heart of Gloucester the oldest fishing port in the U.S., and the setting for Sebastian Junger's bestselling book and popular film "The Perfect Storm." Gloucester has miles of rugged coastline, lovely rivers and forests, several large and popular beaches, excellent restaurants, museums, and the oldest working artist colony in the U.S
Please come and spend a few days in my home and beautiful Rockport & Cape Ann.
