Complete with a wrap-around front porch and a white picket fence, this charismatic Victorian Farmhouse located in Rockport’s sought-after South End, is a true representation of quintessential New England. So, if you are a home buyer looking for something delightful and perhaps a little bit old-fashioned, your search may end here. This turn-of-the-century gem is listed for $789,000 by Carol Dagle of J Barrett & Company.

“Everyone who sees this home instantly falls in love with its charm. They become especially fascinated when they hear that it was once the summer home of famed Smithsonian artist Jon Corbino,” says the Realtor.

A classic front parlor with a hardwood floors and a fireplace ushers you into a first floor that is both traditional and adaptable. To the immediate left, a nicely-sized bedroom with generous closets and an adjacent ¾ bath would make for the perfect guest room or a very comfortable in-law suite perhaps. As Dagle points out, this set-up would also afford easy single-level living one day should you need it.

Also on this floor, find a generous living room with coffered ceilings, recessed lighting, and a wood burning fireplace flanked by built-in shelving; a remodeled dining room with a beamed cathedral ceiling and banks of windows; a well appliance kitchen complete with a dining peninsula, ample cabinets, and access to a side screened door; and a powder room. Three bedrooms with wall-to-wall carpeting share the upper level with an updated full bath.

Other features of this home include a spacious walk-out basement, a car port, a newer oil tank, and a large level back yard. Additionally, this house has been recently de-leaded and freshly painted on the exterior. Ideally sited near the rocky coastline, this property is within minutes of Old Garden Beach, Bearskin Neck, eclectic shopping and dining, and the world famous Shalin Lui Performance Center. Commuters will also be glad to know that this home is convenient to the train as well as Routes 128 and 95.

“The house sits on a very desirable corner lot of well over 16,000 square feet,” says Dagle. “This in itself is quite a hot commodity in Rockport. The whole package is really picture perfect.”
