This historical, 19th-century waterfront house is located in the heart of Rockport directly on Rockport's quiet 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 water. You are as close as you can get to the sea. This was the old customs house at the turn of the century. Ships stopped at the wharf across the bay to clear customs here. Original beams and floors are lovingly maintained.
Enjoy spectacular sunsets and ocean breezes from our 2nd floor home. One queen bedroom, full bath, well equipped kitchen complete this idyllic home. The village galleries, shops, and restaurants, are all within walking distance in the heart of Rockport's Cultural District. Enjoy your coffee on our harbor front deck with bistro table, watch 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 private 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.
