Property description

A newer beach home located in the private Diamond Cove area of Annisquam in Gloucester. Even though it is not directly on the water, it is the perfect location. You have the use of two (semi-private, association members only) beaches. It is only a minute walk to the Diamond Cove rocky beach, where you can swim, dive, launch your kayak or just sit and watch the beautiful sunset. It is about a five minute walk to the Annisquam Light House sandy beach.
THE HOUSE: Out the back door you will have a deck with with table and chairs and view of the surrounding woods. There is a patio with table, chairs and a gas grill by the side of the house. The FIRST FLOOR is an open living and dining area with a wall of southern exposure windows overlooking the woods. There is a gas fireplace and a fully equipped kitchen. A powder room plus a bedroom (full bed) with a private bath complete the first floor. The SECOND FLOOR has three bedrooms,(one queen bed, one full bed, two twin beds) a bath and a laundry room. The THIRD FLOOR is a large open game room. There is gas fireplace, a TV den area, pool table area, a computer area and a bathroom. Pets will be considered.

A LITTLE SOMETHING EXTRA: There is a lot to do in this area, but the best thing is you don't have to do anything! The house is completely furnished and for the convenience of our long distance renters, we operate on a use-it- up and replace-it system for all the staple items (if you use up the salt or the laundry detergent, just replace it before you leave). This will save you lots of money and time by not having to purchase every little spice or staple you may only need once. Just bring your clothes and personal items. There is an information book available in the house that lists local activities, restaurants, maps, etc. that will provide the answer most any question.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2004

About the owner: Our family has owned this property since the 1930's. Ken has summered here his entire life. This architecturally designed house was built in 2004.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
Annisquam's Diamond Cove is a very private residential area on the water. Most people will never get to experience its beauty unless they rent. We love sharing it with others.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Great place to enjoy Thanksgiving or Christmas. No matter what the weather may bring, the sunsets area just gorgeous. There is a community bench at the Diamond Cove beach where you can sit, watch the sunset and take pictures. During the Fall it is a great base location for "leaf peeping". Then come home to a nice warm fireplace.
