When this 1920’s home was purchased in 2018, it was in need of updating and repair. One year later, after painstaking renovations, this charming American Foursquare is a completely restored masterpiece. Ideally located just a few hundred feet from the Annisquam Footbridge, this remarkable home also boasts breathtaking views of Lobster Cove, the Annisquam River, and Wingaersheek Beach. Listed for $999,000, it is proudly presented for sale by Martha Anger of Engel & Völkers By The Sea.
“This house was purchased by a full time contractor and the owner of a plumbing and heating business. Bringing together their high level of expertise and heartfelt dedication, they created the best possible version of the house. The quality of workmanship, the superior materials, and all of the design choices are absolutely unmatched,” says the Realtor.
While this home has clearly been brought into the 21st century, careful attention was paid to its past by respectfully refurbishing the foyer’s original hand carved doors, hand railings and an old- fashioned “telephone room” with built-in seating. New white oak floors lead to living and dining rooms enhanced by oversized windows, decorative moldings, restored pocket doors, and access to a covered deck with water views. The adjacent kitchen is just stunning with quartz counter tops, Thermador stainless steel appliances, bright white cabinetry with soft-close pull-outs and under cabinet lighting, and a generous breakfast bar with pendant lighting.
Sharing the second level are three bedrooms including the master with a walk-in custom closet, private water-facing deck and the most sumptuous bath featuring a double vanity with marble tops, heated floor, mood-setting lights, a glass shower with multiple rain heads, and a large soaking tub with Hans Grohe fixtures. A second full bath with high-end Sonoma tiling and heated floor completes this level. The fourth bedroom, is found on the finished attic level. This multi-purpose room with water views is simply stunning with vaulted ceilings, recessed lighting, wall to wall carpeting, and three solar powered and rain sensing skylights.
On a lengthy list of upgrades, find new plumbing, HVAC and electrical and brand new windows, doors and roofing. Additional highlights include an unfinished basement for storage or possible expansion, a detached garage, a new paver patio, an outdoor shower, and professional landscaping.
“This house is absolutely remarkable, but so is its location. Surrounded by similarly beautiful seaside homes, it is within minutes of the Annisquam Yacht Club and only a paddle away from the boating side of Wingaersheek Beach,” says Anger. “You could be in this special house just in time for the best of the summer season.”
An open house for 732 Washington St., Gloucester, is planned for Sunday, July 14, from 11 a.m. to noon.
