A 100 year-old family summer cottage on a secluded high hill in Annisquam, surrounded by blueberry bushes and blocks to the beach, this is a perfect summer get away.
Built in 1916 as a summer residence, which it remains, “Blueberry Hill” features many period architectural details. Situated on the highest spot in the Rockholm neighborhood of Annisquam, the house continues to capture the cooling breezes of Ipswich Bay.
The first floor comprises a sun porch, living room, dining room seating eight, kitchen, laundry room, and half bath. There is also a king-sized air conditioned bedroom, and a single bedroom with a half bath.
A completely private large mahogany deck is set at the back of the house, off the dining room. It is surrounded by lawn, massive granite rocks, and mature trees. A new outdoor shower has been recently added.
The focal point of the living room is a fireplace faced with beautiful granite boulders. Double, sliding glass doors lead to the “Sun Porch” and its three walls of windows. The door from the Sun Porch opens onto granite steps, which lead down to the lower garden with its blueberry bushes, rose bushes and dozens of hosta plants.
On the second floor, three bedrooms, a full bath with tub, and a separate “shower room” are arranged around a central hall. In addition, there is an alcove with a day bed – a perfect spot for napping or reading in the afternoons.
The property also features a separate air-conditioned Guest Cottage with a queen bed, and private bathroom with skylights and a shower.
Including the Guest Cottage, “Blueberry Hill” sleeps 8 to 10 comfortably.
Renters have rights to one of the most beautiful, white sandy beaches on the North Shore. Known as “Lighthouse Beach,” it is a five-minute walk from the house.
“Sunset Rock” is another, very short walk from the house and a perfect spot for sipping cocktails and watching the sun setting over Ipswich Bay.
Boston is easily accessible, approximately 45 minutes by train from the Gloucester depot. In addition to downtown Gloucester and its many retail shops and restaurants, Rockport, Newburyport, and Salem are all great local seaside destinations to explore.
We will meet you at the house when you arrive, give you a quick tour, and answer any questions you may have.
