Location: Rockport, Massachusetts
The long weekend may be over but the summer holiday spirit lives on at this midcentury waterfront retreat in Rockport, MA, a quaint seaside town on the tip of Cape Ann, about 40 miles northeast of Boston. Its name, Thatcher House, hints at the home's phenomenal views of Thatcher Island and its twin lighthouses in the distance, a picture-perfect focal point in the landscape of verdant lawns, rocky shores, and the vast blue ocean.
Built in 1963, the 2,267-square-foot house has been well maintained and updated by current owners, who've had the place for the last 20 years. The upper level features an open-plan living, dining, and kitchen space, with glass walls and expansive decking facing the ocean. The master bedroom is also on the upper level, but two additional bedrooms, plus a breezy multi-purpose room, are on the lower level.
