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.

About Deb Schradieck

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 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 10 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'. We love it there and we know you will, too.

Deb Schradieck purchased this townhome in 2014

Why Deb Schradieck chose North of Boston & Greater Merrimack Valley

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.

What makes this townhome unique

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!

We love this house. It's our 2nd time staying and hopefully not our last. Perfect for 2 families with separate spaces, lots of bathrooms and great big kitchen. Short walk to the beach and close to restaurants and shops. Beautiful and comfortable. Thanks for everything!

Just what we were looking for

  • 5 of 5

We rented this house for the week of my daughters wedding at the Beauport. The house was perfect for our family. We had 6 adults and 2 children in there and there was plenty of space for everyone. It's a short walk to the beach which is one of the best I've ever been to. The owners were a pleasure to deal with and easily accessible. This home was just as described and you pretty much just have to bring clothes and food! It's a short ride to downtown Gloucester and many other attractions. I would highly recommend this rental to anyone who wants a great beach vacation or someone who is having a function at the Beauport or Cruiseport as an alternative to a hotel. Jim D

The owners thought of everything

  • 5 of 5

We had a terrific vacation with our daughters, their spouses and our grandson. The house is impeccable, the modern kitchen fully equipped with a grille on the deck just off the eating area and the bathrooms large and sparking clean and modern. The furnishings are very comfortable and living on three levels gave us all more than adequate privacy. The owners provided beach chairs and boogie boards, and wagons to transport items to the beach. They also provided brochures about all the things to do on Cape Ann. Good Harbor beach is an easy few-minute walk and the house is equi-distant from all the attractions in Rockport and Gloucester. The owners were so cooperative and easy to deal with. My one, very small comment is that the back deck was a bit small. It was nicely furnished with a table and settee and two chairs and we did enjoy sitting out in the evenings. We could not have asked for a better summer vacation experience.

Owner's Response: Thank You, Margaret! I'm glad you had a great vacation. Yes, the deck is not larger due to conservation restrictions on the nearby marsh. But being so close to the beach is worth it! We hope you'll come back next year.

Perfect vacation spot!!

  • 5 of 5

Absolutely beautiful, spacious home near Good Harbor beach. Everything you could possibly need and more. Stayed with my husband, our 2 boys - 5 and 9, and my sister and her husband. More than enough room to spread out without tripping over each other. Easy few minute walk to one side of the beach and 15 minutes to the opposite end. I can not say enough good things about this rental. Thank you for sharing it with us.
