Immortalized in 1924 by artist Edward Hopper, Haskell's House, sometimes referred to as “The Wedding Cake House”, was built in 1884 for merchant Melvin Haskell. This distinguished Second Empire home is situated high above Gloucester's beautiful inner harbor, with incredible views of the city, outer harbor and the ocean beyond. Perfectly located within 1 mile of beautiful Good Harbor Beach and just steps from Gloucester's vibrant downtown area, with its many eclectic shops and wonderful restaurants. Rich in character and exquisitely restored, this iconic 4 bedroom, 4 1/2 bath residence is grand in scale, with high ceilings and spacious rooms, yet intimate in feel, retaining it's original elegance while featuring today's modern amenities. Today, Edward Hopper's painting "Haskell's House", now has it's place in the National Gallery of Art in Washington, DC. To quote Edward Hopper... "If you could say it in words, there would be no reason to paint."
