Video of 39 Norwood Heights | Annisquam | Gloucester, Massachusetts real estate and homes

http://www.PattyNaggs.com - Annisquam…people come for the views and stay for the lifestyle. Magical is how living in this Annisquam home is...

This house is all about the waterviews. It was designed to have a waterview from every room, yet be comfortable and cozy for year round living.

Facing the Annisquam river, with views south, west and north. To the south watch the sailing & lobster boats on the Annisquam river. To the west feast your eyes on the white sands of Wingaersheek and Cranes beach. Looking north the vista stretches to the mountains of New Hampshire & Maine. Water views can be found from nearly every room and each of the 4 balconies, deck and wrap around porch. Located steps from coveted Lighthouse beach (one of 2 private association beaches). So close to Lighthouse beach you can watch your friends and family playing in the water or happily engaged in conversations.

The main house has a gloriously inviting farmers porch that overlooks lawns and frames the stunning waterviews. The rocks on the shoreline aren't just for contrast to the sea they are perfect for swimming off of when catching a ride from a passing boat! And did I mention the fishing off the rocks, steps from your frontdoor?

The first floor living space is open and inviting with an intimate area near the wood burning stove that features views of the Annisquam river and also a place for conversation or TV.

The large dining area features water views in two direction and opens to the kitchen and the living area.

The open kitchen with custom cherry cabinets, granite counters, eating bar and an island opens to two separate eating areas (one intimate with waterviews- of course) as well as the larger dining space adjacent to the living area. It also features a very private, secluded, protected terrace perfect for outside grilling or reveling in the early spring sunlight away from the ocean breezes.

Light floods the entire second floor, just as it does the first floor. Upstairs offers a master suite with a west facing balcony and a private marble master bath.There are two other bedrooms (one with its own south facing balcony) that share the other full bath.

Built as two separate homes and connected by a glass hallway the other part of this comfortable home can be used as an extended home (featuring 5 bedrooms), guest quarters or an au pair suite. This part of 39 Norwood Heights offers waterviews on the second floor which consists of two bedrooms, one bath and an open living/dining/ kitchen space again featuring a wood stove for cozy winter night. The first level has another bath and three other rooms which have been used as an office, an exercise room and a playroom.

Annisquam is known for its waterviews, it's private beaches, sailing, its history and its traditions. It features a sailing & tennis club which this year hosted the Jr. sailing Olympics. Next to the sailing club is a very special restaurant, The Market, which open seasonally, offers a native menu in the Alice Waters tradition of cooking. Annually, there a is a summer fair replete with a performance called "The Waxworks", where residents enact vignettes of a chosen theme every year. The Annisquam Library is in the center of the Village and there is also an annual theater production by the Annisquam Village Players, frequently a musical, hosted by and featuring the residents and other local talent. At the holidays this same group walks the streets of the the Village serenading residents with carols. Come for the waterviews, the beaches, the boating and fishing...stay for the special lifestyle of Annisquam.

This young well built home offers the best of modern living in the traditions of magical Annisquam.
