Property description

This is a house “in back,” which provides amazing privacy, but with quick access to town, Rt. 128 and the beaches. Off street parking for 2 cars. Three breakfast restaurants within easy walking distance. Good Harbor Beach is a 10 minute walk, or a quick drop-off/walk back to save beach parking fees. Downtown Gloucester is walkable - about 10 minutes. Two minute walk to 7/11 convenience store, 5 minute walk (short 1 min. drive) to Stop and Shop and CVS with Redbox. Less than a mile to Rocky Neck, the country’s oldest art colony.

This two bedroom condo is a delight. Though it’s an older house, it was “flipped” 6 years ago, so everything in the condo is brand new. The living room has a large dining room table that seats 6 comfortably, large leather sofa and leather king’s chair, 42” flat-screen TV, DVD and stereo surround sound.
The kitchen is a well equipped galley style with refrigerator, New Wave oven, microwave, toaster oven and gas stove.
Both the master bedroom and guest room have full sized beds.
One of the nicest features of this condo is the large deck with patio furniture and a barbeque grill and smoker located right off the living room that overlooks our quiet little neighborhood and my perennial garden. We spend a lot of time out here in the warm weather. It is shaded nicely by large silver oaks in the afternoon, giving an 'up in the canopy' feeling, and gets a beautiful ocean breeze from the south. Mondello Square is a dead-end street, and our house is located off the street, making it very private, but easily accessible. Though there is no central air, we have no real need, as Gloucester is surrounded by ocean, and delightfully cool in the summer.
This condo is perfect for 1-2 couples or for a family of 4. Pets OK upon approval.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: Our names are Barbara and Al Boudreau. We have a jazz band that plays regularly in the area, including Boston. During your stay, maybe you could catch our show! We are also sailors and will be living right down the street in 'Catitude,' our 30' Endeavour Catamaran. We love living here, and so will you.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
Gloucester is one of the most beautiful, interesting towns in the world, not to mention the amazing beaches for swimming, the intriguing history and friendly, helpful residents. We have moved many times in our lives, but Gloucester is the last. You will enjoy your stay here. There are so many wonderful things to do that cross over the cultural and recreational line.

The Unique Benefits at this Condo:
This location is very convenient, and you won't spend much time in the car unless you leave the island. Walk to breakfast, then walk to the beach, take a sunset drive around the back shore, then stop at a local restaurant for all different kinds of music, all within a short drive of the house. Talk to us about a boat trip down the Annisquam, and go under the bridge that you crossed into town. Relax and enjoy, you're in Gloucester.
