                  Owner info

                  Year Purchased: 1986

                  About the owner: Built in 1986 as an 8 stall carriage house, Misselthwaite Manor was remodeled into a 3-4 bedroom residence, reminiscent of an english manor home complete with exposed beams, raised paneling, Count Rumford fireplace and many authentic amenities of the time. With its tiled floors and unique wallpapered baths, fashioned after an english country manor home, each room is just a little bit different in decor.

                  Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
                  Eastern Point is a special place, a private peninsula surrounded by the sea and wooded walking paths to the ocean, a light house and rugged open ocean back shore, all from our door. There are many cozy beaches nearby, as well as Good Harbor Beach, one of the most beautiful beaches in New England.

                  The Unique Benefits at this House:
                  Although private and quiet, we are no more than 10 minutes to shopping, boating, art galleries, fine restaurants, theatre and swimming . The Historic fishing port of Gloucester has been rumored to be the fishing capital of the world, and sightseeing abounds be it via tour boat, private boat or afoot. Many fine art museums as well as the Maritime Historic Center are close by. Historic Boston is just a 45 minute drive away.
