On the Market: A Rockport Beauty with a Hot Tub Facing the Harbor
Soak up the views from your private deck.
15 Atlantic Ave., Rockport
Size: 2,628 square feet
Harboring big dreams about an upgrade in 2021? From its spot right on Rockport Harbor, this beauty in a coveted neighborhood invites you to drop anchor and float completely surrounded by luxury.
This three-bed and three-bath is all about that enviable location: Any closer to the harbor and you’d be on a boat. Here, you can drink in morning cups of coffee and sea views right on a private deck that’s just off the kitchen. And while others need to await the warmer weather to take a dip, the hot tub on the deck brings a bit of summer all year long. The home is also steps from Main Street and one of the most picturesque spots in all of Massachusetts, Bearskin Neck, the rocky outcrop that juts out into Rockport Harbor.
Though built in 1900, renovations to this distinctive home make waves, from the granite countertops to the spacious rooms. Here, historic beams and brick and stone detailing add some refined rusticity to the paneled ceilings and crisp palette. On the lower level, you’ll find two guest rooms with a full bathroom, with stairs leading to the main level. You’ll spend lots of time gathering on the main level with its historic beams and a cathedral ceiling that tops a kitchen graced with stainless steel appliances, a spacious island, and granite countertops. Meals in the adjoining dining room come with a side of sea views, thanks to the picture window that wraps the built-in benches, with dinners spilling out onto the deck in the warmer months. While you’re waiting out the winter, meanwhile, warm up by the showpiece of a stone fireplace in the family room.
The flagship space of the primary suite, including a separate sitting area, awaits on the second level. Here, you can let the ever-changing view of the seas lull you to sleep. Stow your cargo in the two closets while a spiral staircase leads to the attic—perhaps your future private library. Even the tile bathroom boasts sea views. And that private deck that faces the harbor? Drop anchor here and it’s all smooth sailing.
