Description from manager

Situated on a knoll in Gloucester's Bay View neighborhood, Helena House offers peekaboo views of Ipswich Bay from the second floor bedroom with deck. Decorated with a European sensibility, the home is sunny, comfortable and cheerful, with hardwood floors throughout. A Queen Anne-style house, you can access the second floor via a front staircase that leads from the living room or from the back staircase via the kitchen. The bedrooms upstairs have AC units for comfort and the separated WC and shower areas provide flexibility.

A lush and private back yard gives you a feeling of being away from it all.

Spend your summer vacation relaxing, discovering local fauna such as hermit crabs, and swimming to your hearts content. A short walk takes you to Hodgkins Cove where you can swim and enjoy the scenery or walk to many fishing spots and quarries for swimming. The picturesque neighborhood beach of Plum Cove is 6/10 of a mile, and a bit farther is the sweet little village of Lanesville. Annisquam and Rockport are a short drive away, making this home a convenient and comfortable Cape Ann getaway.


Living Room: A sunny room with a bay window, a stylish modern sectional sofa and a flat-screen TV.

Kitchen: The sunny eat-in kitchen has plenty of storage, a gas range, and a full-size front loading washer and dryer.

Dining Room: Formal dining room seats up to 8.
