This family owned cottage has been owned by our family for over 20 years. A few years ago, we decided to take on a full renovation of the house taking the interior down to the studs and to redo everything! **UPDATE** - Exterior of the house was completely painted and new wooden, Dutch door was installed summer of 2013. The result is a beautiful, well laid-out cottage designed for modern living and vacations.
Everything you could need for a week in Rockport and the Cape Ann area is included; washer/dryer, linens, comfortable quilted bedding, TV/Cable, beach chairs and a wide open kitchen/dining/living area making the house extremely comfortable.
The house is centrally located in Rockport, just at the end of Main Street and the great shops and restaurants, which makes it convenient, yet removed from pedestrian traffic of downtown. Front Beach and it's brand new bathhouse is located 100 yards across the street. Bearskin neck is a 5 minute walk as is Back Beach. Pigeon Cove, Lanesville, Long Beach are all a short drive away. This location is impossible to beat!
Ann and Joe Roman purchased this property with dreams of making it their part-time vacation getaway outside of Boston. As an avid oil painter, my father Joe was drawn to Rockport for the abundance of inspiration in painting his landscapes. He has been affiliated with the Rockport Art Association for much of the 20 years of ownership. Ann is an active community theatre actor and has performed in dozens of shows in the Cape Ann area as well as the new Shalin Liu Center in Rockport.
When this property came on the market, my parents could not pass it up. They took a gamble on a dream to spend time part-time near the ocean and hope to one day retire full time to Rockport.
The proximity to downtown Rockport, the beaches and all the area has to offer cannot be beat.
Front and center to all Rockport has to offer. Open the front door and you will see the world strolling by.
