Located in the heart of Annisquam, Grandview is a stately and gracious vacation home in a private and lushly landscaped setting. Atop a hill, the property commands incredible views of both the Annisquam River and of the sea. Grandview is timelessly elegant and comfortable, with plenty of space for your family to enjoy. Throughout the house, you'll find a satisfying blend of comfortable contemporary furnishings, wonderful art work, and antique accents.
The home's large footprint allows for everyone in your group to spread out if they wish to have more privacy, but there are also numerous spots to gather together. Relax on the generous screened porch to catch the breeze, or sit in one of the home's many spacious living areas, like the enormous sunken living room, or the more casual den. The large eat-in kitchen with water views is perfect for family breakfasts or more casual meals, while the formal dining room will turn even takeout into an elevated dining experience.
There are two spectacular private sand beaches only a few steps from the house. Lighthouse Beach on one side and Cambridge Beach on the other side. The Annisquam Yacht Club reciprocates with members of other yacht clubs and has full dining, docking and mooring facilities. Grandview sits only a few steps from the idyllic small community of Annisquam Village on Lobster Cove. Travel 15 minutes to the historic and beautiful seaport Village of Rockport, MA, and enjoy strolling eateries and artisans along Bearskin Neck, or take in a show at the Shalin Liu Performance Center. If that wasn’t enough, the restaurant district and beautiful sand beaches of Gloucester, MA are only 15 minutes in the other direction.
