Moments from Rockport village with its vibrant arts and music scene, and close to Good Harbor Beach and downtown Gloucester, this wonderful Craftsman-style stucco and stone home commands a prime location on 5 acres in Rockport’s desirable South End. With the understated opulence of a fin-de-siecle summer cottage and the breezy charm of a grand country lodge, the property offers elegantly landscaped grounds and gardens abutting conservation land, all a short walk to Pebble and Cape Hedge beaches. The home itself is an irresistible combination of luxury and leisure: a great room features a popplestone fireplace, hardwood floors, with doors opening to an expansive covered veranda, while a dining room with intricately designed brick fireplace opens to a lovely bluestone terrace and tiled dining patio looking out on sweeping lawns, gardens and woodlands. A detached three-car garage offers a separate fully-equipped efficiency guest apartment that could easily double as a home office.
