About the Property
4 Bedroom, 3 Bath, Newly Renovated Kitchen And Baths, Porch.
The first floor has an open living/ dining room with huge windows onto the view. We now have a little english wood burning stove tucked into the original fireplace, which makes it very cozy in the winter time. There is a separate study/TV room with a convertible couch and pocket doors. The large kitchen with its scrubbed pine farm table has the same amazing view and has been completely renovated in a classical style. There is one full bath with a tiled shower on the first floor.
The second floor has four comfortable bedrooms, each with an ocean view, and two full baths, one with a clawfoot tub and one with a large tiled shower. Both are newly renovated.
There is an outdoor gas grille and outdoor table and chairs.

Rockport and Gloucester have their own historic houses, art galleries, restaurants and museums (In addition to great beaches, sailing and fishing!) If you want even more culture, it is a one hour trip either by car or commuter train to down town Boston. There are antiquing, sunset sails and great fried clams in Essex. Historic Salem, Ma. is less than an hour away. Buy your fresh lobster from the lobsterman down the road and cook it in our big lobster pots! Or you can buy fresh cooked lobster at Roy Moores in downtown Rockport, a five minute drive from the house. Hike the old granite stone Quarries with fabulous ocean views at Halibut Point State Park. 10 minute drive from house.
Year Purchased: 2013
About the owner: I am a preservation architect and my husband is a lawyer. We live full time in upstate New York. We have two grown children.
Why the Owner Chose Rockport, MA, USA:
This house is a dream house to us. We had owned an adorable beach cottage just down the road from Arbory House for ten years after having fallen in love with Rockport and the south end of Rockport in particular. We love the authentic yet unpretentious New England feeling of Cape Ann, its charming architecture, beautiful, friendly family beaches and unsurpassed views of the ocean. This house has all the charm of a 1907 vintage beach house, plenty of room for extended family to spread out and just simply the most exquisite and expansive view of the sea and Thacher Island.
The Unique Benefits at this House:
Without a doubt, Arbory House is in one of the premier locations in Rockport. It is on a high ridge, called Paradise Cliff, with 270 degree views of the ocean. The neighboring houses are classic lovely old rambling Shingle Style beach houses. Several have been in the same families for generations. Houses like these have been described as 'The Architecture of the American Summer' by architectural historian Vincent Scully. Our house does truly represent all that is best about summer, it is relaxed but beautiful with a mix of family Antiques and new wicker and comfortable upholstered furniture. my great grandfather's nautical art work adorns the walls. It has all the mod cons but also a great feeling of the past. To sit with a drink on that porch with friends and family is one of the great joys.
