    Build new – are they crazy??? This place is beautiful! It certainly could use some TLC, and a new entrance from the street side, but those are all do-able tasks. Someone, please, rescue this home! 🙂

    Why is this house bringing tears to my eyes? Overwhelmed I guess… Absolute peace.. Too bad it is now surrounded by these monster houses…

    I would love to buy & preserve this house. That it has lasted this long right on the ocean means it is a pretty tough customer!

    Lorraine you’re so right about the “monster” houses. To me they are just another manifestation of the narcissistic tastes our society is gravitating toward. Instead of building warm comfortable homes, they build monuments to how much money they have. I doubt I could ever feel as at home in the neighboring houses as I could in this gem. It would be fun to hit the lottery, buy the neighboring homes, tear them down and plant beach grass on the lots.
    …would be nice to get the furnishings too!

    Uh, yeah, you’d wanna get that seawall put in promptly! Should have had one long ago.
    Roof would be second.

    Love the place. Even being sandwiched in, it looks like quite the relaxing place to exist. I’d would absolutely love to wake up to that view from my bedroom window!

      Agree on the seawall. First priority here. But what an amazing property! I am filled with envy for whoever gets their hands on it!

    Always wanted to live by the ocean. This would do for sure. I would restore this and make it a beautiful summer home. The wicker would have to stay. Would love to see more pics of the inside-kitchen ect…

      Summer home is right!! Can you imagine waking up every day to the sound of waves crashing literally at your feet? Oh the joy for summer living at the water’s edge!

    Isn’t it sad this cottage wedged between the McMansions in such a spectacular spot. I dearly hope whoever buys it will renovate it and not tear it down for another 4 wall nothing house. Looks like erosion might have taken away that lovely back porch? Wish I had the money to buy it. I would plant climbing roses and make it a lovely summer nest.

      Actually, if I am seeing the pics correctly, between pic 1 and 2, it looks as though the porch was enclosed. Just falling roof lines.

    Those mansions don’t have that gorgeous dining room with the built ins! I’ve never been to the beach in the Northeast, but would love a chance to summer there!

    Those neighboring homes have changed extensively since Gives you more hope for this precious gem!

    The only thing that needs to be rebuilt is the seawall. If it isn’t shored up soon, the house has a good chance of sliding down the next time they have a major hurricane. Beautiful house though.

      It was falling apart unable to fix on the inside sadly. It now has a beautiful sea wall and is ready for a new beautiful home.

        Sorry, don’t believe that it was “unable” to be fixed. Short sighted people were just “unwilling” to do the fixing. What a sad waste, I hope the lovely woodwork was salvaged!

    From the street view, it looks like the house on the left got the teardown treatment, but the house on the right looks like it could be a renovation. I would really love to get a better look at the house two doors down on the right. It looks interesting!

    WOW-WEE! What a gorgeous area! I cannot imagine looking out at the sea every time you pass the window. I bet the sunsets/sunrises are just breath-taking!

    I know it sounds nuts but I love that kitchen!

    In case you were wondering about whether the seawall could be held for later, here is typical of what we see every year or so on the local news: http://bostonstrong.com/?p=2954
    (This is Nahant, but similar location to Hull, which has same issues).

    Some of the rebuilds are done because the structural requirements are so drastic renovations no longer make sense, so you wind up building new.

    I just love these old New England beach front properties. This one remains exactly like I’ve always remembered them. Most have been remuddled or torn down. I’ve spent time in a house like this, in Brant Rock MA. I wouldn’t do much to this dear place other than a quick cleaning. I can remember waking up to the sounds of the waves rolling in….there’s nothing like it. Too bad that these areas are now completely overcrowed.

    Hull is a beautiful little town except for the summertime traffic with only one way in and out I spent a lot of time here as a kid and we’d get errands done during the week. This is at the very far end of Hull and the views are even more spectacular than the pictures. I hope someone saves this place.

    I always wince when the listing suggests a possible tear-down. Far too much of that activity is happening on the Eastern Seaboard with the current crop of McMansions which although they have immense size, seldom do they have the character or charm of the much older homes they replace. I see a lovely home here that appears to have been standing on this site forever and has the patina of age. Why replace it with yet another McMansion?

    A few photos remind me the movie…Summer of 42. I wish I could buy it and SAVE it.
