The grounds include three custom cedar-fenced areas including a private courtyard just off the kitchen where the stunning ocean views are the perfect entertainment to your summer cocktail party. The younger set will adore the double swing held up by the offspring of a Johnny Appleseed tree — all while enjoying their own stunning ocean views. The well-established vegetable garden’s soil is fortified with seaweed and fed by well water — ideal for the veteran or novice gardener. You can easily store your gardening tools in the 10-by-25-foot shed which includes electricity as well as a backup generator for the home.
The ample Beach Street driveway allows parking for four cars and a boat and the second — yes there’s a second driveway — is a one-car private spot on Granite Street.
“It’s a spectacular spot,” says listing agent Janet Deedy of the Wentworth Group Realty. “From July 4 through Labor Day you can listen to the band concerts at Back Beach while relaxing in the courtyard or while you’re gathering your vegetables from the garden for the dinner salad.
“The house is a prime spot to enjoy Rockport’s annual July Fourth bonfire,” Deedy adds.
