Beach views from almost every room --3 bedroom/3 bath home stylishly furnished with your beach vacation needs in mind. Walk into the large granite kitchen with its huge center island and high end stainless appliances. See the surf from the sink, beyond the english country garden. The kitchen is open to the dining area with comfortable seating for 8. For an afternoon rest, or a shady moment with a book you will enjoy the office/library, including a desk and a printer, but also a comfortable queen sleeper sofa. The house has gleaming hardwood floors that are most noticeable in the huge and skylit living room. All the furniture is new. Chairs are light and easy to move from room to room for extra seating where ever you might want to be. We made a point to buy the most comfortable and cozy furniture possible -- including cushioned dining room chairs! Just in case, there is another queen sleep sofa in the living room, and plenty of sheets and blankets, in case you want to enjoy a rainy day watching the the 42 inch flat screen TV with stereo/DVD. There is an area for a quick snack or card game overlooking the back yard. With two doors, the living room opens to the outside deck and garden. Featuring a deck that runs the entire length of the house and has an outside table for dining al fresco that easily seats 8. There is a retractable awning that offers shade and comfort on warmer days and the fenced in yard has seasonal flowers and fruit trees. The bedrooms are on the second floor, including 3 large bedrooms, the master king is ensuite with a private full bath and deck with incredible views of Good Harbor Beach. The other two guest rooms share a connecting full bathroom. One room features a queen size bed, with lot's of space to set up a baby crib or if you are my cousin, you will secretly open P90x on your computer with plenty of room to exercise. The second room has twin bunk beds and another twin bed that curiously opens to be a king size, easily fitting 3 kids or a couple and 2 kids.
Once you have settled in, take a 7 minute stroll down the street and you will find yourself on Good Harbor beach. Yes... you will pass the ice cream stand... and a great place for fried clams on your way home!

Year Purchased: 2012
About: Originally from the area (Burlington, Ipswich, and Danvers) I remember many perfect beach days at Good Harbor Beach wtih friends and family. It was always my dream to have a place here we could invite our friends for the weekend or for a few weeks in the summer! Bart and I relocated to Gloucester August 2013, from Paris, France. Bart, my husband, is from Antwerp, Belgium. We met in Paris while he was working at Disney and I at Microsoft. Now we plan to travel in the summer months and let others enjoy our beautiful home for the summer!
We plan on spending many years here... and hope that we will have guests throughout the summer who can enjoy this place as much as we do!
Why Gloucester: The in-law apartment, located in the front corner of the house, allows us to easily store our things while we are renting the house ---We don't usually stay while we have guests, but if we do, everyone has there space, private entrances and privacy.
The Unique Benefits at this House: The view is magical! From the top balcony, I can see easily if the parking lot at Good Harbor is full -- meaning the public side of the beach will be very crowded. I loved the idea of seeing the ocean while doing dishes and laundry --as well as hearing the laughter of the kids on the beach when the wind blows from the east.
The house is a perfect size, with many closets -- it is a dream to walk into closets that are as big as our Parisian kitchen! The kitchen, has EVERY appliance and gadget you can imagine...with granite counters, a center island and a window to the living room, cooking and entertaining across rooms comes natural.
