This sundrenched Rockport colonial is so much more than meets the eye. While its generous floor plan of nearly 4,500 square feet is impressive enough, its location, versatility and flexibility is what makes it so extraordinary. Complete with a stunning backdrop and an auxiliary apartment for added income potential, there is little left to be desired. Brought to you by Mary Francis of Coldwell Banker Residential Brokerage, this stunning opportunity within minutes to the beach is listed for $2,249,000.

The breathtaking main level is light and airy with soaring ceilings, walls of oversized and transom windows, and French doors to a tremendous composite deck. The expansive living room is further enhanced by a pellet stove with stone surround, custom cupboards, architectural columns, and nautical-inspired ship lapping. A seamless flow brings you to a chef’s kitchen boasting generous cabinetry, ENERGY STAR appliances, and a dining peninsula with ample seating; a beautiful sunroom with a cedar ceiling, stone flooring, and walls of windows; and a sunken dining room with exterior access. Just down the hallway, a handsome and somewhat rustic library with exposed beams and built-in bookshelves offers a bit of solitude should you need it. Rounding off this level is a convenient first floor bedroom with double closets, and a full bath with walk-in shower.

Sharing the upstairs space is the master bedroom with en suite bath, two guest bedrooms, a second bath with double sinks, and an office.

Ideal for the would-be landlord or perhaps an endearing in-law, the aforementioned apartment opens a “Pandora’s Box” of possibilities. On the first floor, a thoughtful open design features an attractive and well-applianced kitchen with granite counters and a breakfast bar; a living/dining area with hardwood floors; and a full bath with laundry hook-up. Just above, find a nice-sized bedroom with recessed lighting and balcony; a tiled bath with shower; and an attic for storage. Additional highlights include a private entrance, designated parking, and a fenced-in yard with patio.

While this spectacular offering is well-suited for year round living, it is currently a vacation rental with a very good history. With reservations already on the books for part of this summer, the buyer would assume leases and proceeds, says Francis.

“If you enjoy dazzling water views and would like your very own deep water dock, this bright and cheerful home offers that and so much more,” says the Realtor. “It is a very special property that affords elegant, yet comfortable living.”
