Owner info

Year Purchased: 2007

About the owner: In 1969 Ralph and Jossie 'Sallah' Pratt bought this house. They raised their six of their nine children here and opened their doors to Gloucester daily to share stories and enjoy what is best about being apart of Gloucester. In 2007 my wife and I bought the home to celebrate them and share this special home with others. This home is special. As grandchildren of Ralph and Jossie we enjoy fond memories of sunny summer and fall days and nights sitting around enjoying the warmth of this home and all those who entered.

Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
As a fifth generation Gloucester resident I have had the blessings of travelling across the USA and have always felt a deep love for this community and growing up in this house as the grandson of Ralph and Jossie Pratt wanted to help people come and experience Gloucester in a home that helps create the best experiences of 'home' for those who visit. Come to Gloucester and stay at our home so you can feel the warmth of Gloucester like a real member of the community.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
LOCATION: In real estate the most important value of a property is the location. Then it is warmth, charm, comfort and the feelings you take with you after your stay. If you stay at The Pratt House 'On The Boulevard' you will be in the best place, Gloucester's breathe taking harbor within steps to all that makes Gloucester special. This home will also give you a place to call your second home. Warm, comfortable, spacious and with plenty of private outdoor space to relax or play in privacy. ( WE do not rent the home out for functions or events like Weddings ect..)
