About

An hour's drive from Boston (and a quick drive to the Gloucester commuter rail stop), this airy modern house, perched on a hilltop overlooking Ipswich Bay, is a beautiful and inspiring place to live. In addition to the unique architecture and stunning views, you'll have access to the 55-acre private estate, including tennis courts, two beaches, and ample land to roam (a scenic mix of rocky coast, meadows, forest, and marsh). The estate has been in our family since the Civil War and is still dotted with historic mansions. Avian visitors to this tranquil spot include belted kingfishers and bald eagles. It's a wonderful private haven, with access to the cultural riches of Gloucester and Rockport (the Shalin Liu Performance Center, the Rocky Neck artists' colony, Hammond Castle, great restaurants and markets, and much more). The house is fully furnished (featuring Breuer, Charles Webb and Chilton furniture), with two working fireplaces and wall-to-wall Berber carpet. The views, taken from the deck in these photos, are also amazing from indoors, thanks to the floor-to-ceiling windows of the spacious open-plan main area; the bedrooms have gorgeous views, too. It's an atmosphere unlike any other, and a perfect retreat for writers, academics, and scientists. The house is also available weekly during the summer. Please visit our website for more information about the house and the estate, and for many more pictures (plus video tours of the house): www.BayViewEstate.net
