This direct tidal waterfront home, once the “Bay View Post Office” and store is located across from Historic Hodgkins Cove in the Bay View/Lanesville section of Gloucester, Massachusetts. Excellent boater/kayaker’s location with close access to deep water just outside the cove. Annisquam, Wingaersheek Beach, Essex River Estuary and Halibut Point are all a short sail or drive away.
Hodgekins Cove was once home to the Cape Ann Granite Company, later the New England Lobster Company and currently The University of Massachusetts and City of Gloucester.
The property has been recently updated and although a year round home, feels like a beautifully finished summer cottage. The rooms are filled with an abundance of natural light and the water views can be enjoyed on both sides. Savor spectacular sunsets out to the Cove from the front and the tidal creek in the back where the current owners currently moor their boat.
There are now three full baths, four bedrooms, family room, central air conditioning, updated wiring and an attached one car garage. The finishes throughout reflect care and attention to style and comfort. Use this home either year round or as a vacation/weekend get-away. Enjoy Plum Cove Beach nearby, the convenience to Boston and being near all Cape Ann has to offer.
This home sold February 2, 2018 for $788,000
