Entire home
You’ll have the house to yourself.
The three-story, house, on a peninsula surrounded by our two private beaches, dunes, marshes, and conservation land, offers total privacy: a nature lover's paradise. It's a jewel of the private Wingaersheek Beach area.
Gloucester is a lively place 12 minutes away, for restaurants, festivals, music, galleries, shops and beautiful sight seeing.
NOTE: The Netflix movie "Killer Cove" was filmed last year at the house! Bad plot but great exterior and interior scenery....and no killers anymore!

The space
The home was completed in 2008 and offers many amenities besides 360' views of the coast and preserved land. There is a separate beach bathroom with double waterfall shower, steam room, sauna and outdoor shower. Bedrooms are large and spacious. Kitchen is fabulous to cook in with friends and comes fully equipped. The wrap around decks offer the sunset over Essex Bay, and the sunrise over the Farm Creek marsh. Rec room has a piano, ping pong table, 42" plasma TV and air hockey table. Two private beaches, one facing Essex Bay and Crane's Beach, the other on Farm Creek and its marsh. You can walk to the point along the Bay, or continue around onto private Coffin's beach for 4 mile walk.

Guest access
The whole property with two private beaches. Guests must stay off dunes and keep to the paths and beach as the dunes are full of poison ivy and very susceptible to erosion.
