Gloucester - Annisquam House Rental Photos and Description
NEW! 6 bedroom/4 bath home is situated on the highest point of Brier Neck with astounding views from every angle and a 5 minute walk in either direction will take you to the surf and sands of Good Harbor or Long Beaches- the best two beaches on the cape.
NEW! This 6 bedroom/4 bath home has nothing "cottagey" about it and it is situated on the highest point of Brier Neck with astounding views from every angle and a 5 minute walk (on quiet side streets) will take you to the surf and sands of Good Harbor OR Long Beaches, arguably two of the best beaches on Cape Ann. Ascend the outside steps of this Tudor style beauty and observe the 3/4 of an acre of rolling lawns of the large yard on one side, and then take in the spectacular 240 degree views (and sounds of the surf) of coastline from Gloucester to Rockport including Long & Cape Hedge Beaches, the open ocean and Salt and Thatcher Islands as well as the tree and rooftops of the inland points of the cape from the two larger decks as well as two smaller decks on the other side of the house. For early risers, it is a real treat to watch the sun rise between the iconic twin lighthouses of Thatcher Island.
Inside the views will take your breath away with the wall of windows surrounding the dining area just off the modern sunny kitchen with a gas range. The cathedral ceilinged living room also has plenty of glass to take advantage of your perch above it all. On this main level is also a hexagonal sitting room with a high quality pullout sofa, small deck and views of Salt Island and beyond, as well as a smaller single bedroom and the guest king suite with a custom tiled bath with glass enclosed, oversized shower. Completing the main floor is a half bath and stackable laundry off the hall. The second floor of the house has even better views, being higher, and the master queen bedroom has a wall of beautiful custom walnut inlaid built-ins (concealing the TV), a private balcony and Ming Green marble bath with oversized glass shower and granite vanity. There are two more bedrooms, one with twins and the other a queen bed, both with views and they share the use of a tiled hall full bath. A lovely arched door in the queen bedroom leads to a surprising Juliet balcony that overlooks the living room.
The first lower deck is part of the au pair suite complete with a full bath and kitchen, living area with a pullout sofa and a separate queen bedroom. The main house has 5 bedrooms, and all bedrooms plus the main living area are cooled by air conditioning units. Both decks are furnished and the large upper main house deck has plenty of seating and dining options as well as a new Webber gas grill. Parking for 5 cars completes this amazing beach getaway!
