About the property

Apartment in Gloucester, 2 bedrooms, 1 bathroom, sleeps 5

Right ON the harbor. A perfect scene all year-round across the bay of the Harbor, Ten Pound Island and the Paint Factory. Walk easily to harbor restaurants, supermarket, train, THE BEACH. Fish and grill on the balcony while boats sail by.

Large kitchen and dining area with a view of the ocean. Living area with Harbor corner view. Bedroom is spacious with a queen bed, new mattress. Balcony gives you the entire spectrum view of the harbor, Rocky Neck, Ten Pound Island and the light house, and the extended ocean view.

There is a half bedroom either for a bed if you want or for storage. One of the 2 sofas pulls out to a bed.

Utilities included - electricity, heat, water, basic cable. For a place right on the Harbor with a priceless view, this is a good deal. Wifi is provided.

Available October 2 until April 30, with negotiable summer rate extension and beyond. Flexible move-in & move-out dates considered.

Located in the industrial, up-and-coming area of Fort Square, Gloucester, the updated apartment is inside an older commercial building. It is right on top of the water's edge. Views of Gloucester Harbor, Ten Pound Island Light House, the landmark Tarr & Wonson Paint Manufactory and a whole lot of ocean.

Walking distance to Western Ave beach, the state Park at Fort Point, the Fisherman's memorial, downtown harbor restaurants, coffee shops and shopping.

Seascape paintings of a life-long Gloucester painter will be added into the apartment.

Grill on the balcony recently moved in to the apartment.

The whole apartment - and the view - is yours!

Second floor apartment. It has a large kitchen closet and a spare room. There is storage space that can be offered for additional fees.

Fort Square is an old commercial fishing area, which is still partially used for lobster boats unloading and shipping out. The rest of the building is used by the owner as a residence.

Nearby is the famous Cape Pond Ice Company where the Perfect Storm was filmed. You can walk to the Western Ave beach, restaurants, shops and more.

This area hosts some of Gloucester's, and America's, richest maritime history. The harbor is the oldest seaport in US history. Remnants of this fishing town are still alive and well. Renewed in recent years, the old Fort and Flats area create an environment of a renewal with antiquity. You are within walking distance to many conveniences and restaurants, both for locals and tourists.

Walk to the beach, downtown, and trains, notably the MBTA commuter rail to Boston and other North Shore towns.

You can walk to nearby shops and restaurants. Even the Shaw's supermarket is just .7 miles. Less than a mile on Railroad Ave are banks, shops and the commuter rail to Boston. A bike would be great and a car is needed for travel out of the area.

Inquire about monthly discounts.

House Rules: Smoking outside please.

No pets.

Turn off lights and heat when not in the home, please.
