Owner info

Year Purchased: 1936

About the owner: 226 Rock Island Road is our original family home. It was a summer cottage when built circa 1915. Our family vacationed in neiborhood cabins before purchasing 226 circa 1936. 226 Rock Island Road has been an unfurnished rental home since 1981. We designed and completed the total rebuild of a new home in 2008 on the exact same footprint of our original home. We attempted to recapture the basic features of the original while increasing from 1.5 to a full 2 stories. We would hope that the 4th and 5th generation of younger family members are able to enjoy New England in this home with the current 3rd generation grandparents. We are making our home available to you for that same New England experience.

Why the Owner Chose Quincy, MA, USA:
This is where my wife and I call home.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
It is direct ocean front with panoramic views.
