Fun fact: One of the best beaches in the United States is on Boston’s North Shore. Even better? It’s just down the road from Lanse Robb and Sophie Soman’s listing at 129 Atlantic Road in Gloucester. Travel + Leisure has named Good Harbor Beach as one of the top 25 beaches in the country.
Here’s exactly what they had to say about this Gloucester beach:
“Good Harbor Beach is a family-friendly spot with sugar-soft sand and relatively calm water. At low tide, you can walk across a sand bar and explore rocky Salt Island, while little ones get to play in warm tidal pools. Tasty snacks and water toy rentals are available at the concession stand. Note that parking is limited and fills up fast, so arriving early is suggested. Off-site parking and shuttling over are other options.” – Travel + Leisure
Gloucester’s Back Shore is the setting for 129 Atlantic Road. You’re just minutes from the beach and enjoy many of the same sights as beachgoers. One of the many advantages of this European-style manor is that you can avoid the parking headaches while still enjoying this gorgeous stretch of Cape Ann.
In addition to its premier location near the beach, this home also backs to the Bass Rocks Golf Course and is only a mile from Eastern Point and Braces Cove. Plus, you get to enjoy the North Shore’s incredible artistic community and seafood fresh off the boat.
