About the Property
Upscale beach getaway w/3 bedrooms, 3.5 baths, townhouse-style.
This newer half-duplex is less than ten years old, nicely upgraded, and is fully stocked with everything you could possibly need for your beach vacation. First floor has an open floor plan with living room, dining and kitchen, all with gleaming hardwood, plenty of light, and comfortable furniture. The chef's kitchen has a granite island, gas stove, stainless steel appliances and fridge with ice and water. The dining table seats 8 comfortably. Sliders lead to a deck with a gas grill, a settee and a picnic table with umbrella. It overlooks a marsh and woods and is very private. The second floor has a master bedroom (queen bed) with granite and marble master bath. The second bedroom has both a queen bed and a twin bed with double closets. There is a full bath (tub, granite counters) located adjacent to that room. The lower level is a finished, walk-out basement that has both a queen sleep sofa with memory foam mattress plus a full-sized bed. There is a full bath and ample closets. Sliders lead to a lovely brick patio with access from the driveway. There is a washer and dryer available for your use. Window air conditioners are provided on all levels. We supply beach toys, a beach wagon and chairs, towels, linens, and a complete kitchen. We've only owned this house a short time and everything in it was bought brand-new including the beds and mattresses. We enjoy cooking so you will find everything you need in the kitchen. It's new, it's nice, and it's close to everything. 3/10th of a mile from the front door to the sand at Good Harbor Beach.

Year Purchased: 2014
About the owner: We are from Central Mass (Westborough)but have always enjoyed spending time by the sea. We are boaters and first came to the North Shore to enjoy the beautiful beaches by boat. We have kept our boat at a marina in East Gloucester since 2007 and continue to stay on the boat in summer while the house is rented. I am a graduate of Mass College of Art. Although I work full-time as a real estate agent, I paint in watercolor and oils as a hobby. You will see my artwork hanging in most of the rooms in our home. I also display it in Gloucester at The Gallery at the Accommodations on Rocky Neck; The Gloucester House Restaurant and Gift Shop; and at the North Shore Art Association where I am an artist member. Peter is retired from sales and works in winter only driving an oil truck. We have two grown children, one living in Gloucester and one in Westborough. We also enjoy bike riding, hiking, walking, cooking together and eating out. In the 7 years we've spent summers in Gloucester we have really learned a lot about this wonderful place! It makes us happy to share our beautiful 'piece of the rock': after all, Cape Ann is just a huge outcropping of granite. We love it there and we know you will, too.
Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
As a licensed Real Estate Agent, I followed the market for years. We own an antique house in Westborough and I love the older homes. But my husband had had enough of owning one and did not want another. This home appealed to both of us because it was in pristine condition, it's well upgraded, and it is very close to the beach. We have found the house is easy and comfortable to live in. Our neighbors are quiet and super nice. And all the conveniences are very close by. Gloucester itself has so much to offer: its diverse waterfront has the bustling,historic harbor; the beautiful white sand of Good Harbor and Wingaersheek Beaches; the rocky Back Shore that will remind you of Maine; the beautiful Annisquam River with its marshes and creeks; and the outer harbor with Ten Pound Island and the iconic Paint Factory. Then there's Smith Cove, and Rocky Neck, the country's oldest working art colony. There is art and culture aplenty. You couldn't ask for more to do in a relatively small geographic area. Highway access is a snap as the house is only 1.5 miles from the end of route 128, yet it seems like you're out in the country by the sea. Downtown Gloucester is 2.5 miles from the house.
The Unique Benefits at this Townhome:
The obvious benefit to our home is that it's a 7-minute walk from the most beautiful beach on the North Shore (at least we think so!!)...the white sands of Good Harbor. You can also walk to Long Beach. Our street is a winding country road with peeks of the ocean as you stroll towards it. It's only minutes from downtown Gloucester with it's charming Main Street of shops, galleries, and excellent restaurants. Being on the Rockport line, it's easy to get there, too, and check out the famous 'Motif #1', galleries, and rocky coastline. Witham Street itself is home to flocks of wild turkeys, coyotes, and all kinds of birds. You will see the wind turbines in the distance through the trees and hear the train whistle blow as it heads to Rockport. When the wind and tide are right, you can hear the surf pounding the beach right from the house. Also nearby is 'Dogtown' with its network of trails and old foundations. Google it to learn more. The list of places to explore is a long one. You'll need to come more than once!
