This sprawling 1.5 acre oceanfront property commands the tip of Gloucester’s Mussel Point, the ancient headland marking the entry to the harbor and opposing Eastern Point. Affording the finest in seaside living and entertainment, this splendid multi-level 3,800 square foot residence is brought to you by Amanda Armstrong of Engle & Volkers By the Sea. Just in time for summer, it lists for $3,900,000.
“From this sun-drenched home, you will enjoy an endless parade of sailboats, yachts, and fishing vessels passing to and from the Atlantic. The open and flowing interior has the feel of being aboard a luxury ocean liner, with cascading levels of ocean-facing living spaces equipped with deck access,” she says.
Set along the rocky coast, the home makes the most of its spectacular natural setting, enhanced by plush green lawns, rugged granite outcroppings, and stunning sitting areas that include a bluestone patio with firepit. Inside, its spacious floor plan is accented by lovingly refinished hardwood floors, recessed lighting, and walls of windows framing jaw-dropping views of Gloucester Harbor and the Atlantic Ocean. A smartly designed and newly renovated kitchen showcases gleaming white cabinets, stainless steel appliances, a generous center island, an ocean-facing dining bar, and access to an expansive deck constructed in ipe hardwood with arbor-covered hot tub and full bar. A gorgeous sunken living room just a few steps down is well-appointed with a gas fireplace, vaulted ceilings, and French doors. In a colorful nod to the home’s venerable Royal Barry Wills origin, a rustic foyer sports richly paneled walls, exposed beams and a wood-burning fireplace. Two bedrooms with built-in bureaus, two full baths, and a delightful four-season porch complete this level.
The upper floor captivates with a marvelous en suite master offering the utmost in luxury and privacy. A true oasis, this space is enriched by sky lit ceilings, custom bookcases, and a wall of sliders to a secluded deck that appears to jut out over the ocean. Additionally, this home brings an attached two-car garage with work area and a lower level with a family room, laundry and fourth bedroom.
“All of the features of this home come together perfectly to create the perfect venue for unforgettable entertaining,” says Armstrong. “This home is quite simply the pinnacle of elegant coastal living.”
