On the Market: An 1893 Cottage Near Rockport Harbor
This one-bedroom house on Bearskin Neck makes the most of its 600 square feet.
5 Doyle’s Cove Road, Rockport
Size: 600 square feet
There is no cuter cottage in Rockport than Motif No. 1, an iconic red fishing shack at the end of Bradley Wharf. But this 600-square-foot abode for sale nearby is a close second.
The one-bedroom house is a mere two-minute walk from good ol’ Motif. Built in 1893, the seaside cottage has been renovated to make the most of its 600 square feet. Its first floor is open-concept—a newly updated kitchen flows into the living area and dining room.
A spiral staircase leads to the home’s single bedroom. It boasts a good-sized closet and a renovated bathroom, where there’s a clawfoot tub, a washer, and a dryer. Cathedral ceilings and exposed beams make the bedroom feel light and airy, while a wall of windows overlooking the ocean lets in gentle sea breezes.
