EXCEPTIONAL NORTH SHORE HOMES...

"BY THE SEA."

The North Shore communities have historically been viewed as a wealthy, exclusive collection of towns and fishing villages. These quaint communities have varied and rich histories: Gloucester was America's first fishing community; Salem was the location of the infamous Witch Trials as well as one of the largest centers of shipping and sixth largest city in early America. The hysteria that led to the Witch Trials began in the part of Salem that is now Danvers. Lynn was once the center of the American shoe industry. Saugus is home to the first integrated ironworks in North America. Peabody had the largest concentration of leather tanneries in the world; and Beverly and Marblehead often dispute over which town was the birthplace of the American Navy. Newburyport was well known for producing clipper ships and for a brief time in history was the richest city in the Union; it is also the birthplace of the United States Coast Guard. Newburyport maintains the largest collection of Federal period commercial and residential architecture in the nation.

Exceptional Cape Ann Area Real Estate

Our Featured Listings

Cape Ann was first mapped by the explorer John Smith.  When Smith presented his map to Charles I, he suggested that Charles should feel free to change any of the names into English ones.  The king made many such changes, but only four survive today. One was Cape Ann, which Charles named in honor of his mother Anne of Denmark.
