Car: Necessary

Annisquam was the exclusive summering community of Boston Brahmans in the 1800s. Many of the summering families trace their roots back six or more generations. The area now is home to artists, writers, intellectuals, and those who are looking for a more relaxed way of life. Turn off your screen and enjoy the beauty of Lighthouse Beach, the charm of the annual Annisquam Sea Faire, the fun of the fourth of July parade. The local area boasts world renowned theater, chamber music, and dance festivals.


Owner info

Year Purchased: 2001

About the owner: How does West Coast make East Coast happy? She lets him buy a home near his family north of Boston in a tiny hamlet called Annisquam and then spends every summer there with their children. Now 15 years later and she loves the house, the community, even the east coast (of course, she always loved East Coast - that goes without saying.)

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
