Year Purchased: 2007
About the owner: Hi! I was born in Gloucester and grew up on Cape Ann! I am thrilled to be able to share my family beach cottage with you. We had been looking for over 10 years to find the perfect beach cottage and found this diamond in the rough and bought this home in 2007. At the time, it was a summer only camp with no heat! We renovated the home to a year around, cozy cottage, with many of today's modern amenities!
Why the Owner Chose Gloucester, MA, USA:
This home is uniquely situated on the marsh and dune systems of Good Harbor beach. It is one of only 7 homes with this highly desirable proximity to the beach with a large lot and privacy. It is accessed by a quiet, private road and nestled between the woods and marsh/dunes. I hope you will enjoy my gardens as much as I do! Sitting on the back deck or side covered porch, it is a pleasure to bird watch! We have numerous books to help you identify the many species. There is also an abundance of rabbits that are adorable to watch, but can be frustrating when the eat all my beautiful flowers :-) The home still has the feel of a early turn of the century summer cottage with original hardwood floors, fireplace (non-functioning), built in hutch in the dining room and cozy layout. We were careful to not detract from the feel when we updated the home.
The Unique Benefits at this Cottage:
Privacy and close proximity to Good Harbor beach. Highly functional layout - cozy, but sleeps 8 comfortably. Amazing deck with both lounging and dining areas with spectacular views across the salt march to the Atlantic ocean. Short drive to both downtown Gloucester and Rockport where there are numerous galleries, shops, restaurants and so many things to do!
