Sunny and bright the cottage sits on a private quarry and is waiting for you to come enjoy all Cape Ann has to offer. Enjoy reading, relaxing, and swimming in the quarry on a picturesque lot abutting acres of conservation land. Direct access to miles of nature trails for hiking, biking, bird watching, and star gazing. Peace, quiet and nature abound on this rare property located in the Bayview area of Gloucester. Private quarry on-site and Plum Cove beach is less than a mile away.
