Property description

This graceful, easy-to-live in home is perched above the sparkling waters of Gloucester's inner harbor. Watch the gulls soar and fishing boats return home to this lively nautical port from the comfort of your enclosed sun porch, deck, or even as you prepare a scrumptious meal in the large gourmet kitchen which opens onto a plush family room with wood burning stove. The warm decor and beautiful furnishings create an atmosphere sure to please even the most discerning guests. On the main floor, in addition to the kitchen which opens onto the family room and sun room, there is a half bath, and a formal dining room which is adjacent to the living room complete with grand piano. Upstairs are three bedrooms, two full baths and laundry. The master bedroom overlooks the harbor. Ceiling fans in each bedroom plus family room. The convenient in-town location of this home makes it an ideal oasis for those who enjoy restful refinement while also delighting in being part of the Gloucester experience. Includes wireless internet and garage.

Owner info

About the owner: I grew up west of Cleveland and have lived on Cape Ann since 1997 when I purchased this home. My first career was as a senior executive in the retail industry for 24 years. I now provide psychology, coaching & group facilitation services for individuals and organizations.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
I find Cape Ann inspiring. I love the sea, huge rocks, and rugged, genuine people. Once I knew I wanted to move here, I had a dream in which I saw the exact same view we have overlooking the inner harbor, so the moment I walked into this home, I knew I was in the right place.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
I especially love the entire back of the house - the kitchen, family room, sun room, outdoor porch and master bedroom. Because they all overlook the inner harbor, there's a peaceful sense of being steeped in the vibrant blend of beauty and everyday life.
