This charming, romantic one bedroom townhouse is located in a quiet, seaside neighborhood on the desirable Rocky Neck in Gloucester Harbor. It has water views and boating access and is just steps away from the water. Water/small beach access just 80 feet or so away (for launching a boat) and around the corner for swimming. Rocky Neck is a fun, festive art colony with many active music-filled restaurants and art galleries. There is a nearby theater company. This house is on a very private street which ends at the water and so has no thru traffic.
The living room and bedroom both have a little water view.
You can relax and eat outside on the pretty sun deck off the living room, or gravel terrace below, with patio furniture and flower boxes, and landscaping.
King sized bed upstairs
Bathroom is upstairs, with stand up shower and small tub
Easily sleeps two, but can accommodate 3-4 with full-size sleep sofa
High quality linens for bed and bath.
There are a few antique furnishings in the bedroom and living room.
There is a bedroom ceiling fan and AC (usually not needed) is on both floors. Sea breezes right off the Atlantic often create a lovely freshness to the place.
There is plenty of storage space.
The kitchen is amply-sized and has all the modern conveniences, including a new Keurig and also large appliances which are new within the last 5-6 years. It also has been updated with lovely, new white quartz and maple counters, as well as granite sink .
There are laundry facilities in the basement for your use.
There is private parking for your car. (I recently enlarged the driveway/parking area due to having to take down a large tree back there).
This is a safe and friendly area where people often don't even lock doors! But it's probably a good idea to lock anyway and we have security cameras, for your added security and comfort.
If you don't bring your car, you can get around by cab, bus, water taxi or bikes (but beware of local drivers!). I do recommend a car to take full and easy advantage of the area and region, however.
It is a great getaway for a couple or single person to enjoy the summer in this lovely area. Gloucester and Cape Ann abound with many cultural and recreational activities, such as in Gloucester: whale watching, large sailboat cruises and many cultural activities and events from Saint Peter's Fiesta in late June to the Tall Ships Parade and Mayor's Cup Race over Labor Day. Also, in Rockport you can find Kayak and bike rentals (and you can schmooze around Bear Skin Neck in Rockport while you're there),
This is available for:
before June 15 and after September 15th: $850 week,
June 15-Sept 15th $900/week,
plus $50 cleaning fees, as well as sales tax.
