Rockport, Massachusetts

$1,499,900 / Colonial Revival
Richard Wilcox Distinctly New England
Prominently situated above beautiful downtown Rockport, this meticulously-restored Colonial Revival stunningly and seamlessly blends historic architecture, design, and character with many of today's modern amenities, all within a very short walk to the soft sands and open ocean tides of beloved Front Beach and the many shops, galleries, and restaurants that downtown Rockport is known and celebrated for. Inside, the grand foyer is warm and welcoming. Flanked by a fireplaced office through pocket doors and a generous living room, the center hall also leads to a formal dining room and a beautifully renovated kitchen with granite counters, stainless appliances, peninsula seating, walk-in pantry, and laundry room. A walk up the stairs reveals five bedrooms and two full tiled baths. The third floor offers a sixth bedroom, a second office, a fitness room, a crafts room, and a full bath. Outside, the wrap-around porch and oversized two-tiered deck are perfect for family gatherings and entertaining. Built for the head of the Rockport Granite Company in 1900, and also serving as a guest house in the 1950s, this aptly named "Story House" is among Rockport's most important historic properties.
