Enjoy views of Gloucester's outer harbor, and the private sandy beach, across the quiet private road from almost every room in this fantastic vacation rental home. There are two glorious slate patios that flank the front door from which you may also enjoy the views of the sunrise. On a clear day, the Boston skyline is also visible on the horizon. This lovely 4 bedroom/2.5 bath property is located on the desirable and private Eastern Point, known for over 100 years as a vacation spot for the wealthy and famous. The 19th and early 20th century elite built their incredible summer "cottages" along the outer harbor of Gloucester, also known as Beauport, or beautiful port. Historically, world famous painters, poets, and dignitaries have made Eastern Point their home away from home and now it is your turn! Enter into the spacious and bright foyer and head into the stately fireplaced living room, which was professionally designed with plenty of comfy seating. French doors allow you to take in the views and access the slate patios. A powder room is conveniently located nearby. On the other side of the entry hall is the open-plan dining, sitting and kitchen areas. The rest of this side of the house consists of 3 bedrooms (one with a Queen bed and two with Twins), laundry and a full split bath that is centered by a double sink area, with a tub and shower room on one side and a private "WC" on the other. The second floor is the master suite which has a Queen bed, is air conditioned and has wonderful views and an ensuite full bath.The house is on a double lot, giving guests plenty of room to roam with privacy, making the setting even more lovely and pastoral. If a swim is in order, you may well be the only folks on private Raymond beach which is a stone's throw from the house. Slightly farther afield (less than half a mile), is the Dog Bar Breakwater and the famous Eastern Point working light house and coast guard house, or in the other direction is the public Niles Beach. The Rocky Neck Art Colony (oldest art colony in the country) is about 1.5 miles away with its many galleries, shops and wonderful restaurants. Rocky Neck is home to one of the oldest working art colonies in the country, and has been inspiring artists for more than 150 years. Downtown Gloucester (and its amazing Good Harbor and Wingaersheek beaches) are only a bit farther, with a myriad of things to do, and the picturesque waterfront village of Rockport is a mere 4 miles away. Hop on the train to Boston or Salem and be there within the hour. Or just stay at your home away from home, on lovely Eastern Point.
