                      Historic Gloucester is located on the North Shore of Boston and can be reached by car (~ 45 minutes) or train. The beach is nearly 2 miles long with powdery, white sand. Shallow water and a long tidal area make this a perfect beach for young children and offers long walks along the beach any time of the year. Gloucester and nearby Rockport offer historic museums, art galleries, noted restaurants, our favorite brew pub, whale watches, hiking, fishing, the Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center, local artisan shopping, summer festivals, and more.

                      We love to share stories of our favorite North Shore experiences and learn of new excursions. If you're looking for something special, please let us know and we'll see if we can find it for you!

                       

                      Owner info

                      Year Purchased: 2012

                      About the owner: Jim, Sue and their two teenage children live in the metrowest Boston area. Jim is a software engineer, and Sue is an artist (you'll see some of her work at the beach house). Together, they have a deep interest in building community and love introducing people to the North Shore.

                      Why the Owner Chose Annisquam:
                      Sue grew up in south Florida and Jim grew up near the beach in California. Wingaersheek beach reminds us of the beaches we knew as children. We love that the Gloucester/Rockport area has a unique history as fishing and art communities. We're thrilled to share this peaceful, beautiful and interesting ocean side experience.

                      The Unique Benefits at this House:
                      The first time we walked into this house we fell in love with the ocean view, which is unbelievably gorgeous -- unlike any we've ever seen in NE. The layout is made for friends and family to gather and the easy access to the beach means no lugging of gear -- just an easy back and forth flow from house to sea. And it's an hour or less from the Boston area!
