Built in 1890, my Victorian-era home, is located at the end of a peninsula on a hill overlooking the Atlantic Ocean and Massachusetts Bay at the beginning of Hull Village, the historic section of town. The house has stunning views from every window of water filled with sailboats, lobster boats, and kayaks as well as Spinnaker Island, Hull's very own 'Mont-Saint-Michel'. Sunrises are spectacular. By night, the light from Boston Light, built in 1783, the second oldest working lighthouse in the US, and the only lighthouse to still be actively staffed by the US Coast Guard, shines through the windows.
