Cape Ann

Cape Ann is a rocky cape in northeastern Massachusetts, on the Atlantic Ocean, located only 30 minutes from Boston’s Logan Airport and only 30 miles northeast of Boston. This seaside area includes the city of Gloucester and the towns of Essex, Manchester-by-the-Sea and Rockport. Cape Ann is a beautiful stretch of coastline that offers big-city culture mixed with small-town charm. Every curve of its rugged coastline shows off a new scenic beauty: harbors, lighthouses, islands, miles of sandy beaches, inlets & coves.

Cape Ann Real Estate Information

Cape Ann homes for sale are beautiful, with many of these properties situated on incredible waterfront rocks overlooking the Atlantic Ocean just south of Sandy Bay. 

Some luxury Cape Ann homes for sale are estates with floor to ceiling windows and modern design, and others are historic manors with classical architecture with brick exteriors.

Either way these homes have incredible oceanfront views and are upgraded and outfitted with modern amenities like smart home systems, new hardwood floors and more.

Cape Ann architecture is often made up of classic New England architecture, with brick walls, gabled roofs and multiple windows.

Many Cape Ann homes are perfect for families, with multiple bedrooms and large yards for playing around in, large enough for sheds for projects and spaces for play areas. 

Backyards often have beautiful wooden decks and patios in Cape Ann homes as well, ideal for enjoying the waterfront scenery and picturesque Massachusetts sunrises and sunsets.

Many of the mid range Cape Ann homes are also ideal as second income properties, as many of them have furnished basements with separate entrances.

Cape Ann Area Information

Cape Ann real estate is located a little over an hour northeast of Boston, the capital and largest city in Massachusetts, by the Yankee Division Highway, a popular road that connects homeowners to other popular towns in the state.

Surrounded by water, the rocky cape of Cape Ann includes the towns of Essex, Rockport and Manchester by the Sea, as well as the city of Gloucester.

Full of beautiful sandy ocean beaches and some of the finest seafood restaurants in the state, some consider this a quieter and less “tourist-ey” alternative to Cape Cod with similar advantages, not without good reason. 

The Cape Ann area is ideal for homeowners looking to enjoy the seaside life, with boating and sailing being a popular recreational activity here.
Whether you’re a seasoned sailor or have yet to learn the ropes, Cape Ann is a great place to get on board a vessel and enjoy the ocean spray.

Between the three main areas that make up Cape Ann — the towns of Essex, Manchester by the Sea and Rockport and the city of Gloucester, there’s always some event happening in these coastal towns, with concerts, festivals and more going on throughout the year. 

Cape Ann real estate is full of novelty stores, taverns and antique shops, keeping a certain distinct maritime charm to the town itself.
