Owner info

Year Purchased: 2012

About the owner: I grew up summering in Scituate, since both parents were teachers and we still have family there. Mother was a Mayflower Descendant; so the family and the town history is something special that we want to hold on to. Even after the long ride in from Ohio, we are so glad to keep visiting the house, at least twice a year. We have made great memories with our child (the fourth generation) there, but also like to let other families experience the charm of a house on the Scituate Harbor.

Why the Owner Chose Scituate, MA, USA:
GrandDad bought the property with a wee summer cabin in 1930 and lived in an inland house in Scituate. My Mother was born and raised there and hoped it would stay in the family for many more generations. The Perfect Storm (as seen in the movie) took the old Cabin and then we rebuilt the new/current house in 1992 and we renovated it in 2012.

The Unique Benefits at this House:
From the moment you arrive, no matter the season, there are the relaxing sounds and smells of the ocean. We love the open concept and ocean views from every room. I enjoy the summer sunrise with coffee on the deck and an early walk to the Lighthouse. Sunset views at the dining room table feels like you are on the water. Of course we love the summer swimming, but even the Winter is beautiful there with the fireplace, Christmas tree and harbor view. We have had great feedback from our guests. Many of them say, 'it is even better than the photos' and many guests return year after year.
