Classic Rockport antique near center of town, 1/4 mile to T station, 3/10 mile to beach, restaurants, stores. But the real surprise is the private, professional landscaped garden with its hot tub, large granite patio, and adorable "bunk house"/play house perfect for children's imaginations. Current owners enjoy fresh eggs each day from the Rhode Island reds in the chicken coop. The side lot is large enough for a sizable vegetable garden. The house itself exudes a warmth and attests to the loving care it has received since 1787. While the original house is post & beam construction including wide pine flooring, the various add-ons are of mixed builds. The most recent is the family room built over the 1-car garage. The large picture window overlooks the expansive side yard (with vegetable garden) while the fireplace will be a winter gathering spot. If needed, this could easily serve as a 4th bedroom with its adjoining bath. No showings before OH. Closing to be July 15, 2017 or after.
