We are, we were talking it was a tough ride out here, very emotional
Very emotional, last Zip Trip of the season last time we’re going to see you guys out here, kind of fun we appreciate you guys coming, all right let’s talk about Gloucester, tell me about it.
Average price for a single family might surprise people it’s only $436,000, so a lot of multimillion dollar homes up here and you wouldn’t even at first thought you’d think it was higher than that but it’s $436,000 and condos at $279,000, and the population is about 29,000.
Maybe a nice condo– all right let’s talk about our first place
No shortage of beautiful homes obviously in Gloucester first one is 7 Forest Lane it’s a beautiful cape, fully renovated, 3 beds, 2 full baths, slightly under 2000 square feet, and great kitchen, high end cabinets, you’ve got the stainless steel, granite, also has pond views, it abuts a pond, you know anywhere in Gloucester a lot of times you’re going to get views of the water so this is a prime example of that. This one is on for $457,000, so very similar to as Anthony said the average single family price.
That kitchen looks very recently renovated.
Very nice, no island but still it’s a beautiful kitchen
You know I love myself an island, all right let’s talk about the second one
We wanted to get some higher end homes this week since Gloucester has a lot of great ones to offer, 2 Ships Bell Road in Gloucester it’s on for $935,000, 3,600 square feet contemporary, this is a very unique home, 3 bedrooms, 2 baths, has great ocean views, a whole wall of glass in the sunroom, literally the whole entire wall is glass, it’s got a pond, a waterfall, a lot of nice features.
It’s got deeded quarry rights.
It’s on a quarry?
It has a lot of granite, you’ve got a lot of rocks up here, so you have this actual, your own little quarry that I think they have and some other folks share.
You wouldn’t think from looking at the pictures that it’s 3600 square feet, but it is.Nice big place, great ocean views and it has its own little pond.
Definitely a little different. All right let’s talk about– this one’s a whopper let’s talk about this last one.
Yes you could fit all of our families and then some it’s on 16 Fuller Street, it’s on for $1,900,000, it’s 11,000 square feet, it’s actually 6 beds 7 and a half baths, 9 fireplaces, it’s got some history to it, I guess Teddy Roosevelt, William Taft, and even Gerry Garcia spent some time in there so a pretty diverse group of people. And this one actually has an elevator up to the third floor which has its own private suite which has actually ahs 2 additional baths, obviously you have harbor views, indoor pool.
It is beautiful we have to leave it at that we could talk about this house I think for a good deal of time so we’ll leave it at that, gentlemen thank you very much, thanks for a good zip trip season, we appreciate you guys we’ll see you soon.
