The seaside towns of Gloucester, Beverly, and Rockport comprise Massachusetts’ own Cape Ann. Whether you are looking at an elaborate multi-million dollar estate or a small cottage, it will most likely be colonial in style. Cape Ann was settled by Pilgrims in 1623, and its towns strive to retain their colonial charm. Because of its lighthouses, beaches, islands, and overall scenic beauty, a good number of tourists visit Cape Ann each year. In the summer season, the towns hum with excitement but not to an overwhelming degree. Below are just a few homes on Cape Ann that are currently on the market.
