Even with the shabby interiors in disrepair, the grandeur of this 1800s-built Rockport home is hard to ignore. From the street, oversized windows and a mansard roof make a statement, and a covered porch leads to the entry. Inside, high ceilings and well-lit rooms with detailed woodwork are highlights. A living and dining area with dual window seats and pocket doors, has potential as an elegant entertaining space. The bedrooms are spacious, and the bathrooms have antique-style tubs. While the flooring, baths and kitchen need attention, there’s an opportunity to customize a space not far from town.
