SEASCAPES: IDYLLIC SECLUSION
On a multi-acre setting of secluded grounds, the exclusive retreat Seascapes is the perfect private oasis in the middle of one of the most vibrant coastal communities in New England.
This charming seaside town is a four-season destination offering new treasures at every turn. Founded in 1623, Gloucester, Massachusetts is America's oldest seaport. Cape Ann (the other Cape) has plenty to offer, and its coastal allure has drawn many visitors to become residents. New England living at its finest, Gloucester boasts yachting, powder-white beaches, golfing, whale watching, upscale shopping, art galleries, and fine dining with the freshest seafood available anywhere. Add to that excellent nearby educational institutions, a private airport within twenty minutes, live theatre, nearby Polo, world-class Shalin Liu Performance Center, and you'll know why Gloucester and the North Shore are so revered. Aptly described as a "Hidden Gem," Seascapes is arguably one of the most exquisite properties currently on the market in the area.
Set high above the Atlantic overlooking Gloucester’s famed “Back Shore” and abutting a private golf course, Seascapes is an exceptional contemporary Shingle Style home designed by award winning owner-architect Zoe McManus. Seascapes is sited to maximize stunning views and privacy; granite outcroppings, mature plantings and professional landscaping create a true estate setting. Listing agent Tom Janis of the Brackett Janis group of Engel & Völkers by the Sea states, “It’s rare to find such a beautiful ocean view with this privacy. You can’t imagine a lovelier setting to watch the sun (and moon!) rise out of the ocean”.
The interior is refined and finished to the highest standards with much attention to detail. Designed for gracious living the 5,000+ square-foot residence is the ideal family home or summer retreat. Perfect for entertaining on a grand scale, 18’ vaulted ceilings and a glass wall frame expansive ocean views in the principal reception room with formal living and dining on either side. It is easy to imagine cooking in the chef ’s kitchen or striking up a conversation in the adjacent paneled library around the massive granite fireplace.
After a long day, retreat to the second floor where you’ll find four bedrooms, three baths and a convenient laundry room next to an inviting sitting area. The primary bedroom suite is spacious with an elegant spa bath, two walk-in closets, windows overlooking the Atlantic and French doors leading to a private balcony. The fifth bedroom (or home office) on the third floor comes complete with commanding ocean views.
Seascapes is convenient to all Gloucester has to offer, but step outside, and it seems as if you are in your own world with little civilization in sight. A wrap-around loggia, an elegant brick and granite terrace, and a screened three-season room offer several options for sophisticated outdoor entertaining and al fresco dining.
Seascapes is a marvelous estate offering everything you could want in a coastal community, along with privacy, captivating views, and an elegant residence.
