Gloucester house description

This is a true beach lover's paradise! Cliff Road overlooks the two most outstanding beaches on the North Shore: Good Harbor Beach and Long Beach, both of which can be reached from this home, simply by walking down the hill. It's one of the few roads that offers direct access to the beach, which means that there is no battling with heavy traffic or paying huge parking fees.
The main floor of the home is wood-paneled, wide-open, and overlooks the tributaries that feed the Atlantic Ocean- wait until you see the sunsets! The mornings in the landscaped backyard are just as glorious: you can sit out in the gazebo with your coffee and listen to the sound of the surf and an orchestra of songbirds. The backyard is also a perfect place to entertain after a long day of boating, swimming, fishing, or any other of the many activities that Gloucester offers.
The house ash two bedrooms and a full bathroom on the first floor and two bedrooms and a full bath on the third floor, with the second floor serving as the main living area. The set-up allows for privacy between different families or the older and younger generations.
If you're looking for a great home to entertain extended family or share with another family, look no further. This house was designed by a family with other families in mind: a great mix of functionality, beauty, and safety.

Please note: while the house is kid friendly, it is not baby-proof.

*An adjoining owner's unit (separate entrances) is used during the summer.*

                  Location

                  Aside from the usual beach activities, Gloucester (and especially the Good Harbor area) offer many opportunities for summer fun. Fishing abounds everywhere- the premiere wharf for deep-sea fishing is only a few blocks from the home, and there is also great striper fishing off of Salt Island (which can be reached from Good Harbor Beach via sandbars during low tide). If activity is your thing, there is great biking along the coastline or mountain biking on many natural trails. In addition, there are several stores that offer canoe and kayak rentals. The town of Gloucester hosts many small and unique shops, which can easily entertain even the most savvy shopper for days.

                   

                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 2004

                  About the owner: A transplant to Massachusetts, I first came to Gloucester on a father/son fishing trip with the Yankee Fleet. In 2003, I had the opportunity to move here for a job, and - initially - I came here for the fishing, mountain biking, and technology, but I stayed because I met my wife. After more than ten years here, I still think this area is one of the greatest areas in the country for outdoor activities and recreation.
