Whether it is a second home, a primary residence, or an income producing property that you are looking for, AVH Realty has you covered with this charming circa 1900 New England Cape. Thoughtfully renovated to accommodate a variety of needs, this 20,196 square foot offering comes with water views and a detached cottage ideal for an artist’s studio or guest house. Listed by Carole Sharoff, it is on the market for $689,000.
An expansive covered porch ushers you into a bright and airy sitting room, freshly painted in soft coastal hues and enhanced by gleaming hardwood floors, crown moldings and French doors. Well-designed with entertaining in mind, the remodeled eat-in kitchen is simply beautiful with its sky-lit bead board ceiling, Italian porcelain floors, brand new stainless steel appliances, and granite counter tops. While the greater part of this level is innately modern, a step into the cozy living room – with its original wide pine floors and wood burning fireplace - is like a step back in time. Completing this level is a convenient guest bedroom with full bath. Head upstairs to discover two more bedrooms, both with pine floors, an additional room, and a newly updated bath with a glass walk-in shower.
A generous brick patio with peeks of the ocean is a glorious spot for al fresco dining when the weather permits, while a three-season room overlooking the bucolic property provides a bit more shelter. Other enrichments include a new roof, furnace, oil tanks, windows, and a Title V approved septic system.
Sited just across the street from the ocean, this home in the sought-after South End of town is also close to historic downtown Rockport and the renowned Shalin Liu Performance Center.
“This home is not only perfect for year-round or summer weekend living, it is also a great opportunity for a savvy investor thanks to its ideal location and a solid rental history,” says Sharoff. “Grab your kayak, bathing suit, or surf board. The ocean is just minutes away.”
An open house is planned for Sunday, July 14, from noon to 2 p.m. at 84 South St. If you would like additional information on this unique listing, call Carole Sharoff at 978-237-5471 or visit www.avhrealty.com .
