          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 1969

          About the owner: My family spent every summer in this gorgeous beach house in Cape Ann, MA. It was a 3-month respite for us coming up from the hustle and bustle of New York City. A place to relax, hone our swimming skills, enjoy fresh lobsters and seafood and entertain friends and relatives. The perfect summer house where we snorkeled, pulled lobster traps, learned to sail, water skied and made memories.

          Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
          In the last 5 years, my brother and I decided to renovate the house and try to make it as beautiful as its million dollar view. It is the perfect entertainment house with its glorious granite patio on a spectacular promontory that always seems to catch a wonderful sea breeze, even on the hottest summer days. It has private access to the beach, so children never have to cross a road or worry about cars. There is also a private end lifeguard. It is only 40-minutes north of Boston and Logan Airport.

          The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
          Outstanding views of the Atlantic Ocean, private beach, private access to one of the most, beautiful, white sandy beaches in Massachusetts.
