Exposed high wood ceilings, skylight and wall of sliding glass doors keeps this unit bright and open while imparting a truly relaxing feeling. All walls are freshly painted in muted coastal colors and most of the furnishings are new 2013.

A full kitchen offers a complete array of Calphalon pots, pans, casserole dishes, pasta/lobster pots and cooking utensils. With plenty of storage for food, the kitchen also includes a dishwasher, oven/cooktop, microwave, coffee maker, toaster, mini food processor and Brita water pitcher.

The Loft at Lane's Cove is located on the top floor of what was once the old Lanesville 'Engine House', in the heart of the Village. The first floor of the building has been a restaurant, antique store and a private residence. It is now the owner's private office space, used only during the week. The top floor unit remains quiet and private.

Step out your door into the morning sunshine and grab a cup of coffee, pastry(or lunch) and newspaper at The Plum Cove Grind three doors down. The post office, Discovery Adventures - a kayak/paddleboard rental place, Wulla Wulla (handmade clothing), Prana Salon and the Lanesville Package Store, which offers a great selection of wine, beer and other food items, like gourmet marinated steak tips, round out the rest of Washington Street.

Ample street parking, usually right in front, makes access to unit easy. The CATA bus stops in front of the post office making travel around Cape Ann easy and effortless.

          Car: Recommended

          The Loft at Lane's Cove is situated in the picturesque quarry village of Lanesville. Located between Annisquam and Rockport, the Loft affords the traveler many opportunities to do some amazing things. History abounds in this area of Gloucester with the Loft itself located on the top floor of the old firehouse that was once operational in the 1800s.

          Walk to the Plum Cove Beach, sited by National Geographic as having some of the best sunsets on the East Coast. Explore the rocky coastline from the Loft, or visit Halibut State Park, a three minute car ride away, to see a beautiful water filled quarry and explore miles of paths. Enjoy a picnic lunch on the rocks. Rent kayaks from right across the street.

           

          Owner info

          Year Purchased: 2013

          About the owner: My brother Robbie and I (Diane) purchased 1072 Washington Street in May 2013, because we wanted to own a piece of beautiful Lanesville. I moved here not too long before from Sudbury, MA and knew that my brother would love this area too. I was really trying to get him to move up here from Long Island, and when that didn't work, I suggested we buy a piece of property together (just to give him yet another reason to come visit me). I live up the street in Lanesville with my significant other, Paul, and my two girls. Paul and I take care of the property and make sure that our guests are well taken care of. We can't say enough about Lanesville. We love it here and even though it seems like we are at the end of the world, there is no place we would rather be…especially in the summer. There is so much to do around here that we are never bored, and neither are the kids - and that says a lot! The best thing about Lanesville is that you can spend the whole day within walking distance of your home and at the end of the day, feel like you were on an amazing adventure. We especially love enjoying a bottle of wine while watching the sun set at Plum Cove Beach. Many nights we will walk down to the cove too, along with many of our neighbors, just to sit on the rocks, watch the waves and boats pass by and reflect on the awesomeness of the area. We feel so lucky to be a part of this town.

          Why the Owner Chose Gloucester:
          Buying this property was really just a whim of mine, but once I saw the inside and the views from both floors, I knew it would be an amazing property to own. I called my brother right after the showing and told him I wanted to make an offer, like right now. He said ok. Mind you, he is my older brother, I'm just the little sister that always followed him around, but some reason he had faith in me and trusted my judgement. There was already another offer on the table, but I wrote a little personal story along with the offer and that sealed the deal. We were proud owners of the little red fire house. I now had a place for my office in the back of the first floor and my dream of owning a rental property had come true. I have a future dream of opening up a small retail store in the front, but first things first. Come stay with us every year and be a part of the dream.

          The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
          The best thing about staying at The Loft at Lane's Cove is the feeling of community. Our neighbors are amazing and everyone is friendly and down to earth. The convenience to everything on Cape Ann makes this a wonderful location for your vacation. Be prepared to fall in love with Lanesville, and with The Loft! As one of the signs say upon entering Lanesville… 'Caution - Beautiful Dreams Ahead'.
