About the Property

House, 2 Bedrooms + Convertible bed(s), 1 Bath, (Sleeps 5-6)

The 'Gray Gull' cottage sits at a location on Plum Island that is unsurpassed for its beauty and tranquility. With its south west exposure it affords some of the most spectacular unobstructed sunsets and moonlit views over 'joppa flats' towards Newburyport that you will ever see.

Sitting on a very large lot for Plum Island, there is lots of parking and only one abutter, a feature very unique to the island. Built in 1960, we are the second owner. After purchasing the property in Aug of 2009 we began a complete renovation while maintaining all the original charm of the cottage. It is now a seaside cottage worthy of its amazing location.

We just finished a complete bathroom renovation for those rare days when an outdoor shower can't be enjoyed.

Owner info

Year Purchased: 2009

About the owner: We fell in love with this property 15 yrs ago when it was unavailable for rent or purchase. That changed in the summer of 2009 when we were able to purchase it. We live 35 miles away and both work full time with kids in college and high school. We have enjoyed every minute of the considerable time spent renovating the 'Gray Gull' and look forward to someday retiring here.

Why the Owner Chose Plum Island, Newburyport, MA, USA:
Having rented for years on the Cape and the islands as well as Maine we really knew what we wanted in a property on the shore. Some places have some of the things we love (Good fishing ,great sunsets, natural beauty, a unique or inviting village or town, culture accessibility) but this place has it all !! We have been coming to this area for 30 years its #1 for us.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
This place is relaxing, casual, inspiring. We enjoy fishing, photography, boating, exercise, reading and long walks on the beach, The wildlife refuge is just a mile away. Newburyport is full of great shops, restaurants, and activities. The outdoor shower is on the South side of the house, it is one of my favorite features.
