About the Property

House, 3 Bedrooms, 1.5 Baths, (Sleeps 5)

This lovely house with an ocean view is a typical example of Gloucester architecture from the late 1800's. Although some upgrades have been made over the years, the house is in largely original condition. There are wood floors and white painted walls throughout. The furniture is comfortable and includes some antique pieces. The back yard is large and is well equipped with outdoor furniture.

Plum Cove Beach, a small beach from which the sunsets are spectacular, is only 1/10 of a mile down the street. No parking sticker is needed since you can easily carry your beach gear with you! A scenic drive will take you to any part of Gloucester or Rockport in 15 minutes or less.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2006

About the owner: My husband and I currently live in Eastern Connecticut. I am a retired Montessori Head of School. ('Karen Drazen'). My husband is a carpenter and cabinet maker. Our older son lives in Austin, Texas and our younger son studies birds around the world.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
I have been visiting Gloucester since I was in college in Boston. When my children were born we began renting a cottage here for our summer vacations. When my parents passed away, I used my inheritance to put a down payment on this house. We hope to retire here someday.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Our house is a very well preserved 1860's example of the architecture in Gloucester at that time. The house is simply but tastefully decorated and has a well stocked kitchen. The back yard is lovely and offers a view of the ocean and northern MA and southern New Hampshire across the bay.
