High on Living
If there was a curated collection of the most dramatic and intriguing residences located on the coast of New England, this month’s reviewed home—perched high above the Slocum River in South Dartmouth, would lead the coveted list of premier properties.
The house, gardens, and multitude of decks and patios sit on 2.64 acres, far from activity, and offers a fine example of design and placement among the area’s natural beauty. Elevated to unimaginable heights, its position atop the remains of a primordial glacier is unnoticed by those who pass at sea level roadways on each side of the river.
Once discovered, a breathtaking gasp follows due to its exquisite example of modern living, with copious entertaining options inside and out. Calling it picture-perfect is not enough, the location has no viable substitute.
Possessing a striking combination of inspiring land and seascapes, this marvelous listing rivals countless others found within the luxury category of exceptional homes.
With a combination of a scenic drive obscured from sight at its entrance and waterfront access, the expansive parking area adjacent to the lookout point boasts a designer quality aesthetic found outside as well as when the doors are opened to the open floor plan which marries form and function.
Having a comfortable contemporary style, the home’s spaciousness is distinguished by unobstructed views found through a generous bank of clear glass windows running the length along with the first-floor interior. Always bright and cheerful, regardless of the skies, there is a degree of opulence surrounding the estate, assuring owners and guests never tire of the sweeping panoramic views and simplicity of the surroundings.
The home shows well with a living room, dining room, and updated kitchen melding into an unobtrusive floor plan designed around sophisticated living.
With a master bedroom suite accented with an incredible luxury bath—like no other—there are also two additional bedrooms, and a guest bath also found on the first level.
Above these amenities is an indoor stairwell leading to an observation room that offers tantalizing views and absolute privacy. Spacious, yet cozy, it could be utilized as an office, additional bedroom, or an indoor entertainment area.
Well planned, the multi-tiered decks are fitted within the naturally sloping banks of the river, keeping with the outdoor beauty of the landscape.
A real model of superlative living, the property is surrounded by acres upon acres of old-growth, which is home to an abundance of wildlife. Still, the location is minutes from the state’s most beautiful beaches, active harbors, and quaint villages, offering fine dining and shopping.
Of particular interest, the home is found minutes from the renowned and recently renovated, Davoll’s General Store at historic Russells Mills Village.
An absolute treasure, this rare opportunity doesn’t often become available. Easily described as a perfect summer retreat or year-round residence, the chance to wake up each day and feel like you’re on top of the world is a feeling that is not only possible but probable, once you visit and fall in love with everything 760B Rock O’Dundee Road, South Dartmouth offers.
