About the Property

Golden Cottage by the Sea, is a true New England Cottage that has been lovingly restored and updated. This quaint 1830's house was completely rebuilt in 2007 and remodeled in 2015. The panoramic views, Atlantic Coastal Path, and fresh ocean air allow for a true place of peace and renewal. Located in a beautiful area called the Avenues it is between the Emerson Inn and Halibut Point. This is the ideal vacation home.

Seven minute drive to the sandy beaches of Rockport. Rated in the top 3 Beaches in New England. A renowned scuba diver’s spot, Back Beach is located between Main and Granite streets. It also offers great views. If you are looking more for peace and quiet, Cape Hedge Beach on South street is quietly tucked away – a perfect place for solitude. Front Beach is a busy beach on Sandy Bay – walking distance to downtown Rockport and its restaurants and shops. Long Beach, off Thatcher Road, is another long, protected stretch of ocean and sand, backed by a cement retaining wall and lined with summer cottages. From Long Beach you can easily view the twin lighthouses on Thatcher's Island. Great fishing, whale watching tours are available. Kayak rental and tours. Stroll along the streets of downtown, and the famous stretch on Bearskin neck, through a variety of specialty stores.
Year Purchased: 2006
About: The Golden Family live in Roswell, Ga and enjoy their retreats to Rockport. They pastor St. Peter's Place Anglican Church and own Land of a Thousand Hills Coffee company which works with farmers in Rwanda while providing coffee drinkers in the U.S with an excellent cup.
Why Rockport, MA, USA:
The Golden family fell in love with Rockport while Jonathan was attending Gordon Conwell Theological Seminary. As Jonathan walked the paths of Cape Ann he was reminded of his families roots in Cornwall, England. The property is a historic home that they restored in 2006. It has beautiful views and easy access for brisk swims, kayaking and paddle boarding right from the back yard.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Bicycling, kayaking, paddle boarding, close enough to town but far enough for quietness. It is truly a family place.
