Standing proudly between a split rail fence & large granite outcroppings, this New England treasure is that most-desired combination: a perfectly preserved and maintained historic house masterfully updated with many modern amenities and conveniences. Sections of the house on a corner lot date between 1650 and 1690 and include King’s Timber floor boards, a carved “etching” of the house with its thatched roof and a Parson’s cabinet over one of the 4 fireplaces. The 21st Century is well-represented, too, with the addition of a modern kitchen, updated bath, central air, mud room & first floor laundry.- Beautiful formal living & dining rooms, plus a study/home office. 3 bedrooms & full bath are upstairs. Beautiful landscaping includes a fenced garden, garden shed & 2-car driveway with Cape Ann granite stairs leading to the private patio. 5 minutes to Gloucester Harbor, Stage Fort Park, Half Moon Beach & Stacey Boulevard.
