   Gloucester cottage offers striking blend of old and new

                BY LILLIAN SHAPIRO, SPECIAL CORRESPONDENT FOR REAL ESTATE MARKETPLACE

Surrounded by two and a half acres of private upland and marsh boasting unobstructed views of Biskie Head and beyond, this classic 1920’s cottage in Gloucester brings a perfect combination of twentieth-century charm and modern day convenience. Meticulously preserved and updated by its most recent stewards of more than thirty years, this residence is likely to be unlike any other you have seen, believes LUX Realty North Shore’s Brian Marvelley, who shares the $948,000 listing with Jane Meterparel.

“This is a property that allows you to swim, fish, or launch a canoe or kayak right outside your door,” says the Realtor. “The (current) owners bought this house as a summer cottage and quickly got to work insulating the roof and all of the exterior walls, installing a forced hot air heating system with central air, modernizing the plumbing, and adding a whole house generator. Despite those improvements, every visible update has been made in keeping with its history. This is a modernized house with all the early 1900’s coastal cottage details.”

A mudroom leads right to the kitchen where you will find period features such as rich natural fir walls and cabinetry, a good morning staircase, a butler’s-style pantry, and an 1880’s ornate coal burning fireplace (converted to propane) with stone surround. At the same time, this space also brings a fashionable soapstone farmer’s sink and a porcelain stove refurbished to include a six-burner range and two ovens.

That striking woodwork flows effortlessly into the formal dining and living rooms that feature large windows, a built-in china cupboard, a stone fireplace, beamed ceilings with period-appropriate fans, and French doors leading to a covered water-facing porch and hot tub. Completing this level is an enclosed heated sunroom and a powder room.

Upstairs, the master suite is beautiful with a gas stove, double marble-topped vanity, an over-sized walk-in shower with thirteen showerheads, and a private porch with access to a roof-top deck with shower. Rounding off this floor are three more bedrooms, a small laundry room, and a shared bath with a claw foot tub.

Additional highlights of this remarkable property, which is just minutes to the highway and commuter rail, include hardwood floors, a large basement for storage, a second outdoor shower, a one-car detached garage with a wood stove, and plenty of parking for guests.

The Realtors invite all interested parties to 31 King Philip Road in Gloucester for an open house on Sunday, November 17th from 11:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. For questions, or to schedule a private showing, call Brian Marvelley at 978-390-7146 or Jane Meterparel at 781-237-3341.
