If you’ve ever aspired to own on Gloucester’s Eastern Point but felt it was unattainable, now is your chance to think again. According to Realtor Martha Anger of By the Sea Sotheby’s International Realty, homes for sale here are often large, costly or in need of work, which is why her current offering is so exceptional. Located just a short distance from the beaches and yacht club, this elegant Arts and Crafts home has been beautifully maintained, features a manageable nine rooms, and is most certainly turnkey ready. Complete with ocean views and deeded ownership of private Raymond Beach as well as access to Brace Cove Beach, it lists for $1,299,000.
“This is absolutely the most valuable neighborhood in Gloucester, and this property is well-located within it, with lovely views, on a sunlit lot, and an understated elegance,” says Anger.
Boasting a smart and efficient open floor plan, the main level succeeds in tying the formal living and dining rooms and the less formal family room together seamlessly. Gleaming hardwood flooring and soft, neutral paint colors continue to the kitchen, which sports ample white cabinetry, a Bosch dishwasher, recessed lighting, and access to a deck overlooking the sun-filled, partially fenced backyard. Adding to this home’s thoughtful design is a first-floor bedroom with a recently renovated handicapped-accessible bath, ideal as a guest room or a convenient second master. Rounding off this level is a home office and a fabulous three-season room enhanced by a slate floor and three walls of floor-to-ceiling windows and screens.
A center staircase leads the way up to a large foyer that is virtually a room in itself. Featuring built-in bookcases, this space could easily double as a sitting area or cozy library. A well-sized master suite, with full bath and private balcony, shares this level, along with the third bedroom and bath. Lastly, a detached garage in need of some creativity and TLC, according to Anger, has enormous potential for added private studio or office space above.
“The home was substantially renovated in 1999 by the previous owners, and it has been lovingly and meticulously cared for by its current owners,” says Anger. “This is a rare and unique opportunity to own in one of Gloucester’s most desirable neighborhoods, whether you’re looking to enjoy this home seasonally or year-round.”
