Totally renovated in 2010, this ocean-facing 1900’s cottage in Gloucester is ready and waiting for its next beach-loving, seafaring steward. Complete with a heated in-ground infinity saltwater pool, hot tub and outdoor kitchen, this lovely home is also just a short distance to Good Harbor Beach, Rocky Neck, and Gloucester Harbor. On the market for $2,399,000, it is listed by Kristin Gynda Bedell of LUX Realty North Shore.
Its classically singled exterior, fronted by a wraparound covered porch, delivers seaside curb appeal at its finest. Boasting walls of over-sized windows and easy exterior access, the home has been well designed to take full advantage of its spectacular surroundings. Enhanced by Acacia hardwood flooring, recessed lighting and high ceilings, the wide open main level features a large fireplaced living room, a more relaxed family room with custom built-in shelving, and a very generous dining area. The sleek modern kitchen is smartly furnished with stainless steel appliances, granite counter tops, and a center island with a wine cooler, microwave, and designer pendant lighting above.
On the second level are four bedrooms, each one possessing its own charming qualities. In the first of two en suite masters, walls of glass afford the most incredible views of the Atlantic. To further heighten this space, there are built-in window seats with storage, hardwood flooring, a custom walk-in closet with cupboards and a mirrored dressing table, a private deck with screened pergola, and a sumptuous marble bath. One flight above, find the second suite which features a wall of closets and an equally luxurious bath. Sharing this floor is a media room and loads of space for storage.
The perfect “home away from home” for friends or family, this property has the added bonus of a detached guest house with garage for that inevitable drove of summer visitors. Well-appointed, it brings a kitchenette, a half bath, and a tiled living room.
Meticulously landscaped, the grounds are complimented by wrought iron fencing, decorative arbors, a bluestone patio, a large driveway with pavers, and a privacy buffer of mature trees and shrubbery.
“Why go on vacation when your home offers all of these amenities, along with spectacular ocean views,” questions Bedell. “As they say in Denmark, ‘Welcome to the world of HYGGE’ — that total feeling of coziness and comfortable conviviality with wellness and contentment.”
