Property Description

Completely renovated in 2015 and brought up to the highest modern standard yet retaining the old world charm - furnished with antiques hand picked from all over the world and wonderful architectural details like an oversized (ornamental) fireplace, massive oak beams, antique pine floors and an immense waterfront wraparound porch, which will be where you will want to sit and while the hours away watching the working harbor at your feet. Enter the house from your choice of doors on either side of the house from the wraparound porch. The formal living room, looks much as it did when Mr. Oakes was in residence, with a large charming fireplace, beams, and multipaned windows. In the name of modern living, a half bath has been added to this level. Walk past the attractive antique staircase into the updated open plan combination family and dining rooms and custom quartz kitchen. Spectacular french doors allow the harbor view to be seen from anywhere in this room, and lead to the waterfront porch overlooking the world famous red fishing shack known as Motif Number One due to its popularity as the subject of painters and photographers. The second floor consists of a gleaming new full bathroom with stacked laundry units, and 3 bedrooms to sleep 6. The master bedroom is a reclaimed artist's studio with gorgeous and massive windows and a vaulted ceiling. A double and twin bedrooms finish off this level. Walk to everything in Rockport including the world class Shalin Liu Performance Center, and the commuter rail which will take you to Boston or Salem in an hour or less. Make this beautiful home your starting point for the Rockport vacation of your dreams! Off street parking for one car included.
