Thanks to the popularity of the North Shore—especially in the summer—when push comes to shove, there is just no room in the real estate market. With every piece of land taken up, there’s still one beacon of hope: Observatory Point. “This is the largest parcel available in Cape Ann,” says LandVest listing agent Lanse Robb.

This elegant and impressive property is a newly constructed version of and older building that was torn down and rebuilt bigger and better. Just finished in 2007, this fantastic home is spacious and striking with 200-degree views of the harbor.

This open, easy living plan has ocean and beach views from every room in the home to maximize the spectacular location. Custom cabinetry, a beach bath, limestone flooring, and a chef’s kitchen are some of the highlights on the inside, while the stunning outside has beautiful granite walls, professional landscaping, and a pool and hot tub, both facing out onto the Atlantic Ocean. There is also parking, which Robb explains is an almost impossible find in Rockport unless it costs a fortune, as well as a two-bedroom guest house separate from the main home.

“If you ask anyone where it is they would know,” Robb says. Recognized around town, this remarkable home is hard to miss. The property even stands out to visitors, as many musical guests performing at the Rockport treasure the Shalin Liu Performance Center have stayed at the home when in town.
