When 54 Adams Hill Road in Gloucester was listed as “steps from the beach,” they never mentioned you could count those steps on two hands.
After being in the same family for almost 100 years, “Stonepatch Cottage” is finally hitting the market as a shingle-covered charmer on the shore of Cambridge Beach. As a summer home or a year-round retreat, the home is a nod to simple, unfussy living. And while it’s not luxurious, it’s sure to be rich in memories for its lucky new owners.
Naturally, the beach proximity can’t be overstated. Facing Ipswich Bay and sparkling shoreline, the home enjoys unobstructed views and a salty breeze. Natural wood walls, a cozy wood-burning fireplace and a screened porch are complemented by an oversized picture window in the living room overlooking the water, with sounds of crashing waves below.
A dining space in the efficient eat-in kitchen enjoys the same inspiring views.
Buyers will love the flexibility of three bedrooms, including one on the first floor with a full bath. The primary bedroom, with walk-in closet, and a generous guest bedroom occupy the home’s second floor; there’s even a walk-up attic with expansion possibilities. Ocean views from all bedrooms? Like you had to ask.
Boating enthusiasts will appreciate Annisquam Yacht Club just a short stroll away.
For more information about the home, on the market for $2,495,000, contact Scott Smith with Coldwell Banker, 617-750-2793.
