Located in the heart of Rockport with commanding views of Rockport Harbor, the village and the Camden Hills, this top-quality, contemporary residence presides in a prominent hillside location. The main house, a historic Methodist church dating back to 1875, was transformed into a unique modern residence by Nancy Talbot, the founder of Talbots clothing stores, and designed by well-known Massachusetts based architect Lawrence Cheng. The current owners purchased the landmark property in 1998 and have continued to tastefully renovate and expand the residence creating a sophisticated, private sanctuary in a convenient location with a beautiful, natural setting - urban luxury in a seaside village.
