On the North River

Historic 18th Century Jewel -

"Mill Hill" ca.1750 est. - A rare opportunity to own a piece of Gloucester history on the North River. This one and a half story historic waterfront home has been perfectly updated to maintain original details and charm in its own slice of paradise on just over two acres. Neighboring 'Toddsbury' is under conservation easement so privacy and serenity is guaranteed in perpetuity.

Beautifully restored additions with modern ammenities seamlessly blend with the original dwelling. Heart pine floors, fireplaces, and iron & brass fittings keep with tradition while custom cabinetry, updated appliances, plumbing fixtures, and tasteful additions maintain a historic feel but provide the comforts of modern day. The grounds are easy to maintain and provide wide views of the North River. A classic boat house with launch accompanies a large pier with lift and a second pier for kayak launch on the waterfront. A charming guest cottage and huge garage workshop round out the property with room for guests and plenty of space for an artist studio and storage.

"Mill Hill" will certainly be appreciated by historic waterfront home buyers looking for privacy, authenticity, and an escape from the ordinary in a truly understated, and serene setting. Contact Bernadette for your personal tour.
