Ocean front property located on well known Atlantic Road on the Back Shore of Gloucester, Massachusetts. This fabulously impressive cedar shingled Queen Anne Victorian inspired home was custom built in 1999 and sits prominently above this landmark scenic road looking over the open ocean. The views are extensive and the home was designed to take full advantage of this setting with many large windows, glass doors and a captivating sea side wrap around porch that people only dream of.
The first floor is open, dramatic and expansive. When I first walked into this home during a heavy rain storm I was stunned by the space and views. Anchored by a walls of windows, glass doors and a stunning floor to ceiling granite fireplace with a raised hearth so it can be appreciated throughout the first floor rooms. I knew immediately that it wouldn’t matter what the weather was, the time of day or the time of year, this is a place to enjoy always.
The spacious kitchen was designed by a professional chef and has more than someone would think to ask for. Well planned to allow for an open kitchen while entertaining and efficient, pleasurable preparation at the same time. Impressive granite counters, have plenty of work and serving space. There are professional grade appliances and include a six burner Thermador stove and grill with a pot filler above. A Gaggenau convection oven, two Gaggenau stainless dishwashers, two sinks, Sub Zero refrigerator and wine cooler. The cabinetry in the kitchen is ample and well planned.
In addition to the living, dining and kitchen there is an open family room set off to the side of the kitchen. The grounds are tastefully landscaped and include an irrigation system supplied by well water.
The second floor includes a fabulous library/office or bedroom that looks out over the water and enjoys a gas burning fireplace. The ocean side master suite is located in a two story turret with lots of glass to take in the water and sky views. This room has a custom walk-in closet and a fabulous master bath, both with ocean views. The home has four bedrooms, three full, one half bath and a second floor laundry room. The bathrooms have recently been updated, the master with beautiful grey tile, warm cream cabinets, soaking tub and tiled walk-in shower.
The features don’t end here nor do the views. Similar to the porch that people only dream of, is an approximately 550 square foot roof deck, looking out towards Eastern Point, Bass Rocks and the Bass Rocks Golf Club that this property abuts.
Additional features include central air conditioning, radiant heat on the first floor, forced hot water on the second with a four zone Buderus gas boiler. There is an attached two car garage and a back up generator. There is plenty of storage throughout the home and additional space with the walk up attic and basement.
Enjoy strolling along the oceans edge and Good Harbor Beach nearby. Fabulous location on Boston’s North Shore and not too far to Route 128 for convenience. This is Cape Ann living!
