Property description

Wonderful Gloucester Oceanfront home. Home offers a deep water dock for kayaking, fishing and relaxation in the ocean air. Wingaersheek Beach is visible from the home and is a short 5 minute kayak ride away. Kayaks and stand-up paddle boards can be rented nearby and delivered to the home. Spend the day kayaking to the nearby coves (Lobster Cove, Goose Cove and Jones Creek) exploring marshlands and watching snowy egrets. Take in the home's sweeping ocean views from almost all rooms in the house. You can see Ipswich Bay, Wingearsheek Beach, and the Annisquam River. On a clear day you can see all the way to the New Hampshire shoreline from the dining area. Enjoy your morning relaxing with ocean views on the wrap around 3 season porch. Plus a spacious waterfront deck for outdoor dining. Neighborhood public right of way access to the mouth of the Mill River for bass fishing, beautiful sunsets and exploring tidal flats. 3 mile driving distance to beaches and public train service to Boston. Newer kitchen including adjacent dining area with spectacular views, spacious family room, living room, and wrap around screened in waterfront porch.

Dock usage: The dock is available for lounging, swimming, fishing, and launching tenant owned or rented kayaks or stand up paddle boards which can be rented locally and delivered to the home. Also a great spot to catch local stripers.

Renting our home with children: We do rent to families with children. As with any waterfront property regular adult supervision is required if children are near the waterfront and imperative while children are on the dock. Peak tidal currents ( the middle third of each incoming and outgoing tide) can be very strong in the river and around the dock. There is a small beach at the end of the street ( 3 minute walk) accessible at low to mid tide, that is best suited for younger children.

It is a large property with great areas for the kids to explore at low tide right in front of the house. The river and the tidal flats are feeding and nursing grounds for many aquatic creatures: crabs, periwinkles, eels, starfish, minnows and raven fish to name a few; are all right there for kids to explore. Enough to keeps the kids occupied for hours.

Please note: Owner's reserve the right to access their boats on the property dock and nearby mooring during rental periods. Owner's will board their boats and depart for the day. The owner's will respect tenant's privacy while on the property and the owner's will not enter the home without prior tenant permission.
