About the Property
Quiet, 1-Bedroom Apartment With Private Deck Overlooking Garden
Completed in 2013, this second story apartment is located at the entrance to one of America’s oldest working Art Colonies. Just steps away you'll find Wonson and Smith Coves, The Gloucester Stage Company Theater, the Cultural Center at Rocky Neck, galleries, shops and restaurants. Enjoy regular musical events, bike Gloucester's beautiful coastline, kayak its large, protected harbor or just have a relaxing stroll down Rocky Neck. Niles Beach is a 10-minute walk away, Good Harbor Beach and downtown Gloucester are 5-minutes by car.
Windows on all four sides provide a steady sea breeze and lots of light. Grill and dine on the deck overlooking the garden with seasonal brook, large willow tree and many flowers and herbs. Cooks will find a well-equipped kitchen, staple pantry items, and are invited to use fresh herbs from the garden!
If you are an artist, you can paint plein air in the garden, or visit owner/artist Rokhaya Waring's studio/gallery also on the property.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
We are in a quiet garden setting, but at the same time so close to a bustling small city, rich with history, places to visit and things to do. We have beaches, wildlife, and sunsets over the ocean, a wealth of cultural events and restaurants- all within an incredibly friendly community. This area of Gloucester feels like a village, with everything one needs or desires close by, and we often feel that we are on vacation- right here at home.
The Unique Benefits at this Apartment:
My husband and I love living in this area that has inspired so many artists: Fitz Henry Lane, Winslow Homer, Edward Hopper, John Sloan, and Marsden Hartley- to name just a few. We cherish being able to walk to Rocky Neck for breakfast at Sailor Stan's, dinner at The Rudder, or for a freshly baked muffin and a newspaper at The Last Stop. We love to stroll to the end of the Neck to see the old Copper Paint Factory (now the headquarters for Ocean Alliance), and through America's oldest shipyard (Gloucester Marine Railways) to see the boats being worked on. The beauty here is intense and genuine.
