Owner info

Year Purchased: 1997

About the owner: We live in New York City but spend our summer's in Rockport. I am a free lance film editor and my husband is a teacher. My daughter and son are in high school and middle school. We can't get up for the whole summer so we are offering our home for others to enjoy.

Why the Owner Chose Rockport, MA, USA:
Rockport is the birthplace of my grandfather and I've been summering here my whole life. Once you visit, it's easy to see why Rockport is a magnet for artists and ocean lovers. Buying this house was a dream come true. My husband, myself and our two children love and cherish the time we spend there and would love other families to share in that experience.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
Every person who enters this house expresses how peaceful and serene it is. It's not the Taj Mahal but it's home. Perhaps it's the light reflecting off the ocean, perhaps it's the quite or the view to the twin lighthouses but you could spend hours sitting on the porch perfectly content.
