Rockend is a one-of-a-kind property located at the end of a private driveway in the quiet, woodsy area of South Rockport with stunning, direct views of the Atlantic Ocean and Thatcher Island, home of the Twin Lights. Ocean air, peace-and-quiet and easy walk to the beach make it an ideal place to vacation. It is less than 2 miles to Downtown Rockport which includes beautiful Bearskin Neck, historic Dock Square, jewelry shops, antique shops, clothing shops, restaurants and, most especially, the Shalin Liu Performance Center. The Rockport to Boston MBTA train station is also less than 2 miles from Rockend, with Boston being an hour train ride away.
The property was updated and gained a new, large addition in 2012. It sleeps up to 6 adults and up to 4 children comfortably.
The main house is loaded with Old World New England Charm. Exposed brick, granite walls and hardwood floors provide lovely accents. The first level of the main house contains a renovated kitchen with gleaming granite counters, newer oak cabinets and updated appliances. The modern bathroom contains a corner shower. A large dining room with interior grill area opens onto a sunroom, which leads to a deck with ocean views. The living room has a large bay window, also with water views. The second floor of the main house has 3 bedrooms (1 king bed, 1 queen and 1 twin) and another full bathroom (tub/shower combo). The third floor contains 2 bedrooms (3 twin beds) and a brand new full bathroom (tub/ shower combo).
The new addition to the property is connected to the main house through a utility room with a full laundry. It includes hardwood floors and designer-chosen paint colors. There is air-conditioning on the first and third floors of the addition. Ocean breezes envelope the entire property constantly. The first floor consists of a beautifully-furnished den, large bedroom (1 queen bed) and large bathroom. This bathroom boasts double sinks, a 6-foot jetted tub, glassed-in shower and top-of-the-line finishes. The second floor consists of a new granite kitchen with high-end appliances and large dining area (6 chairs and 4 island stools), and a powder room. The ocean and Thatcher Island can be viewed from almost every window and there is a deck off of the eating area. The third floor, boasting the most dramatic views of all, is a large sitting room with powder room. There is a granite wet-bar with a beverage fridge. A large sliding glass door leads to a spectacular ocean-view sitting deck.
