Enjoy panoramic views year-round in this Rockport jewel

(Continued)

Upstairs boasts a spa-like master suite. The vaulted ceilings, skylights and open-concept design of the master suite create a space that is full of light and remarkably serene.

“The master suite is the perfect place to come to relax after a busy day,” adds Oulton. The upstairs deck offers panoramic views of Pigeon Cove and beyond.

Pigeon Cove — one of the few remaining working harbors in the area — is historically one of the most revered areas of Rockport. “You have not seen Rockport until you have seen Pigeon Cove,” wrote author Arthur Morley in his 1924 homage to the community, “Rockport: A Town of the Sea.”

The home is situated on the inlet to the harbor, and the grounds are partially landscaped to provide the ideal play or outdoor entertaining space, while the gentle slope toward the sea could be expanded to provide an additional finished yard if desired. There is a full walk-out basement and parking for three vehicles. The wonderful shops, galleries and restaurants of downtown Rockport are just a 1-mile scenic walk or bike ride away.

This property is offered at $879,000. You can visit the property during an open house scheduled for Sunday, Oct. 6, from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. Contact listing agent Julie Oulton, Beaton Real Estate, at 978-491-0623 or julie@buycapeann.com.
