This delightful 3 bedroom, 1.5 bath Queen Anne-style vacation rental home is bright and cheery and just waiting for you!
Enter the house into the kitchen from the verdant and sizable back yard (or choose one of the other 2 doors). The sunny kitchen has plenty of storage, a gas range, and a small center island that can be used to eat or as a meal prep area. A full-size front loading washer and dryer are also in the kitchen.
From the kitchen you will pass through the large dining room, with built-in shelving, and through a set of french doors into the living room, with a bay window and stylish modern sectional sofa and flat screen TV. The den (just off the dining and living areas) has a comfy double futon. There is a spacious half bath on this level and there are hardwood floors throughout the main floor.
Upstairs are 3 bright bedrooms and a recently updated (2015) full bath. The master bedroom has sliders to a deck from which you can glimpse the ocean, as well as a California king bed. The other two bedrooms on this floor have twin beds (two are extra long) and one bedroom also boasts two trundle beds. The new European-style bathroom with a walk in shower and double vanity is separated from the toilet for more versatile use.
There is a second set of "back" stairs which brings you down to the kitchen entrance. While the upstairs bedrooms are air conditioned, the first level is not. Outside, a slate patio, hot & cold outdoor shower, one car garage and a driveway that can accommodate 4 cars complete this vacation home, making it a convenient and comfortable Cape Ann getaway.
