THE CHARLES HOVEY HOUSE (circa 1845) is perched high on a bluff overlooking a panoramic view of Gloucester Harbor. Crystal chandeliers suspended from 12' ceilings, gleaming parquet floors, gilded mirrors, antique 6' soaking tubs, and 5 working fireplaces contribute to the atmosphere of relaxed elegance.

   

An awning covered veranda, 40' long, overlooks two lighthouses and the comings and goings of the Gloucester fishing fleet, schooners, yachts and tour boats.

One of Cape Ann's most prestigious historic homes, the Charles Hovey House has been fully restored with period antiques and original art. An oil-on-canvas mural lines the dining room; the living room's marble fireplace, flanked by floor-to-ceiling windows, is topped by a splendid gilt mirror, and the bathrooms feature period Art Deco tiles and luxuriously deep tubs. The quiet and comfortable bedrooms offer gorgeous antique beds. One acre of terraced lawn is abloom from early spring to first frost with lush gardens.

Fully and comfortably appointed:
• washer/dryer
• towels and sheets
• TVs, VCRs
• 2 dishwashers
• microwave
• full kitchen, etc, etc.
