Realtor Amanda Armstrong of Engel & Volkers By the Sea is delighted to announce the launch of Phase II at Anchorworks — Gloucester’s landmark new townhome community on the banks of the Annisquam River. With the four homes in Phase I having sold almost before the foundations were poured, the highly anticipated second phase of construction will come as good news to homebuyers seeking the finest in “town & coastal” living.

“Forged in the bedrock granite and clay of ancient Cape Ann, this is a new development that immediately stakes a unique claim in modern Gloucester,” says Armstrong. “With the rail link to Boston on one side and the A. Piatt Andrew Bridge on the other, and just down the street from the original settlement’s first town green, Anchorworks is a riveting addition to the landscape of luxury waterfront homes on the North Shore.”

Each home will offer a versatile open-concept design that supports two or three bedrooms. Two floor plans will afford homeowners the choice of a master suite on the first floor or the more traditional design of having all bedrooms on the second level. While each home can be customized to individual preferences, including finishing additional spaces above the two-car garages and walk-out lower levels, most all will feature large water-facing picture windows, exclusive stone patios, and professional landscaping to support maximum privacy.

The bright, light-filled interiors feature gourmet kitchens with white cabinetry and granite countertops, wood floors throughout the main level, and two-and-a-half baths with current design choices for paint and appointments. Appointments throughout the homes can be upgraded as desired at an additional cost.

“Sitting in the shadow of downtown Gloucester, with its thriving cultural scene, critically acclaimed restaurants, and world-renowned recreational attractions, these homes offer prime waterfront on the scenic Annisquam River with unbroken views of the iconic tidal channels and salt marsh,” says Armstrong. Anchorworks offers quick and easy access to major routes leading to Logan Airport and Boston, and it is mere minutes by car or boat to Gloucester Harbor, Good Harbor and Wingaersheek beaches, and Annisquam Yacht Club.

“With a setting anchored solidly in Gloucester’s storied commercial and industrial past,” suggests Armstrong, “and sitting almost in the current of the waterway that provides its most important navigational artery, this is an address for those who will prize the buzz of a working city and the recreational and restorative effects of coastal living alike.” Pre-construction sale prices in effect now starting at $975,000 to $1,100,000. Completion of Phase II is expected for 2020.
