Cape Ann, just North of Boston, exerts a magnetic pull to visitors with its beautiful rocky coast lines, sandy beaches, quaint architecture, and legendary fishing ports. Manchester-by-the-Sea, Essex, Gloucester and Rockport have transformed from sleepy fishing villages and summer retreats to vibrant year round communities.
The addition in 2010 of the Shalin Liu Performance Center has helped bring Rockport and its sister towns to a new center stage. The result has been a surge in the high-end real estate market for Rockport and the city of Gloucester, with luxury sales extending well beyond the traditional hub of Manchester-by-the-Sea. Rockport broke the all-time record for an inland family sale with the recent closing of 183 South Street. 11 Beach Street has become the record sale for Rockport at $3,700,000. Two Penny Lane in Gloucester is under agreement and will also break that town’s record sale! Lanse Robb procured the buyer for both of these sales and was the listing broker for 11 Beach Street and Two Penny Lane.
The world is taking notice, shouldn’t you?
