About The Property
Prominently situated above one of New England’s most treasured, coastal villages, this meticulously-restored, 1901 Colonial Revival “The Story House” beautifully and seamlessly blends historic architecture, design, and character with a multitude of today’s modern amenities...all within a very short walk to the soft sands and open ocean tides of beloved Front Beach and the many galleries, restaurants, and shops of downtown Rockport.
The history of "The Story House" is rich with local and international importance. Built for the very influential businessman and head of the esteemed Rockport Granite Company, Harry Rogers, the home has seen stints as an important residence as well as a guest house since its turn of the 20th century construction.
From the covered wrap-around porch, enter into the grand foyer, which is warm and welcoming. Flanked by a fireplaced study through period pocket doors and a generous open floor plan designed living room, the center hall leads also into the formal dining room, through which the beautifully updated kitchen, complete with large walk-in pantry, is accessed. The bright sunroom, tiled half bath, mudroom, laundry room, and French-doored reading nook complete the first floor spaces.
Upstairs, the oversized center hall with window bench seating grants access to five bedrooms, both of the tiled full baths, the rear stairway leading back down to the kitchen, and the stair to the third floor spaces, which include four large rooms, a third bath, and breathtaking views.
Outside, the well-landscaped yard features mature trees and shrubs as well as a host of colorful seasonal plantings. The large two-tiered deck is perfect for family gatherings or entertaining. A storage shed accommodates lots of lawn equipment, and the under-the-house boat shed houses bikes, kayaks, and canoes.
Boston is easily commutable via driving or ten-minute walk to the commuter rail. And it's just a short walk to the beautiful beaches and fabulous downtown.
