Property description

This historical, 19th-century waterfront house is located in the heart of Rockport directly on the Old Harbor. Exposed beams and hardwood floors throughout with panoramic views of Sandy Bay and The Old Harbor. The living room, dining room and deck all face the sea.
Enjoy spectacular sunsets and ocean breezes from our 2nd floor pied a terre. One bedroom, full bath and kitchen complete this idyllic retreat. The village galleries, shops, and restaurants, are all within walking distance in the heart of Rockport's Cultural District. From our cozy harbor front deck with bistro table, enjoy the panorama of seaside comings and goings, the quaint buildings on Bearskin Neck and Motif #1 along with the boating activities of the Old Harbor. You can launch your kayak from our property. At sea level, you will enjoy another private small patio for dining and sitting with steps leading to the water and sandy beach. Across the bay, hear the music of the Sunday summer evening's concerts or walk a short distance to bandstand concerts at Back Beach. We are just a minute walk from Rockport’s stunning new Shalin Liu Performance Center and The Rockport Art Assn.
The commuter train to Boston is a 10 minute walk. Back and Front beach are only two minutes away and granite steps lead to the Old Harbor from the property. Boston and Logan Airport are 40 miles. Taxi service is available.
