The sky's the limit for this Gloucester gem

Seaside living is irrefutably desirable during the dog days of summer, but this breathtaking Victorian contemporary in Gloucester keeps on giving long after the leaves have fallen. Complete with stunning unobstructed views of the Atlantic and just a short walk to Good Harbor Beach, this property boasts a versatility not easily found along the shore.

One of three shingle-style dwellings built in early 1900, this recently rebuilt legal three-family comes with a cache of possibilities.

“This is a rare opportunity to live in a sought-after location while generating income to help offset your expenses,” says Realtor Nancy Goodick of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage. “It is quite unusual to have a home that could be used as a vacation getaway or a permanent residence and still have two beautiful rentals. It would also be great for in-laws, long-term guests or the extended family.”

An old-fashioned veranda wraps around the exterior, leading the way to fully furnished and amply applianced apartments. On the first floor, find the two aforementioned rental units. Featuring open concepts and a fluid design, both offer well-equipped kitchens, living and dining rooms, one bedroom, a full bath and priceless ocean views.

The owner’s unit, which spans the two floors above, is the “best seat in the house,” affording gorgeous panoramas of Bass Rocks, Thatcher’s Island and beyond. The gourmet kitchen with recessed lighting, generous white cabinetry, stainless steel chef’s appliances and a large pantry flows effortlessly to a dining room complete with glass doors to a deck overlooking the seascape. Should you prefer your vistas from the inside, the living room features a rounded alcove with built-in window seating. Rounding off this level is an in-home office with access to a second deck overlooking the nearby golf course, two guest bedrooms, an updated full bath and a laundry room.
