Set on more than two acres overlooking picturesque Sandy Bay, this classic Rockport cape comes complete with a private beach and a guest or rental cottage. Brand new to market, this wonderful opportunity is presented for sale by Amanda Armstrong of Engle & Völkers By the Sea for $2,100,000.
Lovingly maintained and well appointed throughout, the main house features three bright and breeze-filled bedrooms, one and a half baths, a full walk out basement and a convenient attic for storage. A delightful four-season porch arguably offers the best room in the house, affording breathtaking views from three sides of the colorful boat traffic coming and going from Granite Pier, as well as front-row seats for sailboat regattas and summer fireworks.
“One of my favorite things about living here has been the priceless panorama which never stays the same. You will see moonbeams streaming across the bay, crystal blue skies, dark storm clouds with lightshows of a thunderstorm and the rainbows that follow, white caps during a Nor’easter, and fishing boats leaving the harbor before dawn. It’s all so up-close and personal,” says the owner. “Our wonderful memories are of warm summer evenings on the beach, cooking out, playing games on the lawn, building rafts, swimming, and boating. It is such a special place.”
Its spacious lot has a generous yard complete with mature trees, colorful plantings that include lilac bushes, azaleas and roses, a circular drive with ample parking and a potential (ANR) buildable lot for a possible addition or second house. The aforementioned guest-house has been successfully rented year-round for 25 consecutive years so the potential for additional income can be assumed.
The property’s ideal location puts you within minutes to beautiful Rockport village, the renowned Shalin Liu Performing Arts Center, local beaches, and town quarries.
“This is the perfect perch on which to settle in Rockport,” says Armstrong. “I can’t imagine a better setting for savoring life in one of Cape Ann’s most beautiful seaside communities.”
