Rare-to-market Rockport gem is sure to go fast

Don’t miss this rare opportunity to live in a historic home within walking distance to downtown Rockport and Bearskin Neck. Rockport remains one of the country’s most revered and visited historic areas for both the artists who flock there for inspiration and the visitors who follow them for the quaint shops, great restaurants and memorable galleries.

“This home’s location is just about perfect. You can walk out the front door and down the hill to everything Rockport and Bearskin Neck have to offer,” says listing agent Janet Deedy of Wentworth Realty Group. “You and your guests will have a front-row seat for Rockport’s famous Fourth of July Parade. This is the type of home that doesn’t come onto the market very often or stay on the market for very long.”

Classic New England elegance and simplicity radiate from every space starting with the covered porch that leads you to the welcoming double doors. Updated to provide all of the modern comforts you expect in a fine home, care was taken to preserve the historic charm of this three-bedroom, 21/2-bath, circa 1855 residence.

The first-floor living space includes a spacious living room where the pellet stove guarantees you’ll remain warm and toasty when the New England winter lives up to its reputation. The room is the ideal size and style whether you are planning an intimate or large-scale gathering of family and friends.

Someone whose passion is cooking and kitchen design obviously planned the full chef’s kitchen.

“It’s a really well-thought-out and expertly designed kitchen,” Deedy says. All of the kitchen appliances are high-quality stainless-steel, including the oversized French door refrigerator.

You’ll be delighted to prepare the tastiest meals with the powerful 17,500 BTU propane five-burner stove and full-size, double-wall convection ovens. Convection ovens are a cook’s first choice because, unlike many conventional ovens, they distribute heat evenly and reduce cooking times by about 25 percent.
