Property Description for 729 Western Ave, Gloucester, MA 01930

With sturdy roots anchored in 1700s Gloucester, and luxuriously updated to create the perfect 21st century family compound, this stately antique colonial with detached 2-story carriage house offers both a tranquil, self-contained retreat and a base for diving into the many attractions of the delightful seaside community of Magnolia. The main home's classic design is rich in character, with exposed hand-hewn oak beams, wide pine floors, and original brick fireplaces and mantels, all seamlessly integrated within beautiful recent renovations. An elegantly updated kitchen adds modern convenience while retaining colonial touches such as beadboard cabinets and farmer's sink, and opens to a large outdoor deck, in-ground heated swimming pool with hot tub, landscaped grounds, perennial gardens, and ornamental trees. The property is equal distance to Gloucester and Manchester, and moments from landmarks such as Magnolia Beach, Ravenswood Park, Stage Fort Park and Manchester Bath & Tennis Club.
