              Owner info

              Year Purchased: 1866

              Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
              This home was built in 1866 by General Benjamin Franklin Butler as his summer residence. It is still owned by his descendants and is now available for rent.

              The Unique Benefits at this Estate:
              With 14 ft ceilings throughout, the main ballroom/living room in this home overlooks the sea and boasts 11 sets of french doors which open out onto to a wraparound front porch with sweeping views of Ipswich bay. Original woodwork throughout. Fireplaces in both the living and dining rooms. We think this is the most relaxing place on earth. You'll never want to leave.
